Men’s Club – Answer the Call

On March 28, 1996, several of the men of Sts. Peter and Paul Parish attended a Mass at St. Gertrude Church in Madeira which was sponsored by the “Answer the Call Catholic Mind’s Conference”. After discussing the event with our pastor, Fr. Paul Stolz, it was decided that we would from a group in our parish so that we could avail ourselves of the conference the following year. Our first meeting was held on May 4, 1996 and we have been meeting monthly ever since. The format for a normal meeting is:Short social with coffee and doughnuts
Prayer and song
Introductions of new members or guests
General items of business
Gospel reading for the Sunday Mass and discussion
Petitions and closing with Our Father and final song
Finish promptly at 9:30 am

Mission Commission

The Commission was formed in 1973. Our numbers are only representative, since this is a parish project.

In 1998 we adopted a Navajo Indian Mission, St. Mary’s in Tohatchi, New Mexico. These people are very poor and in great need. During the years, with much help, we have been able to send good sized donations to them.

Our two fundraisers are the Red Reindeer Sale/Bake Sale and Raffle the first weekend in December, and our “famous” Bingo, Card Party and Major Awards in the Spring.

These are only successful because of hard work, support of the parish, and those who love the Missions.

We have also set up a Memorial Fund for the living and deceased. A donation can be made and your loved one’s name will be included. A Mass is offered once a month at the Mission for those enrolled.

In the Spring a Mass is celebrated on a Sunday here at Sts. Peter and Paul. This will continue as long as our group is active.

Last, but certainly not least, we have joined the Navajo people in prayer. Each second Sunday of the month we pray for them and they pray for us during Mass.

We would be so blessed and happy to have you join us. We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm. If this is impossible, perhaps you would like to sign up as a Mission Helper.

Praise the Lord Prayer Group

Praise the Lord Prayer Group meets monthly at a member’s home.  We are small in size but pray mightily.  The one hour meetings consist of reading Scripture, sharing how God has worked in our lives, and intercessory and praise prayers. The parish prayer line takes prayer requests called into the parish office.  The request is then forwarded to our prayer group and we call others on the prayer line (about 15 individuals).  For more information call Jane Gorton at 733-5542

Respect Life

In our parish we strive to educate the community about the legislative and moral components in regards to abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, and other life issues. We work for women, babies, the elderly, children, prisoners, and the handicapped. Meetings are held in the school building, when necessary, to plan or coordinate an event.

Rosary Altar Society

A group of wonderful ladies who are dedicated to praying the rosary. Many volunteer their time generously to clean the church weekly and to wash and iron the altar linens. Baptism robes are hand made by the Ladies of the Rosary Altar Society. Visits to the shut-ins are a wonderful and fulfilling ministry of these ladies, and they can be called upon to help wherever needed in our parish. Meetings are once a month with lots of devotional laughter and friendliness. Sts. Peter and Paul Parish is one of the few churches that still has an active Rosary Altar Society. Please join us for some holy fun!

Social Committee

The Social Committee at Sts. Peter & Paul came about fifteen years ago and we try to serve many purposes. We have added ‘joie de vivre’ (a sense of fun) to many events.  Our main purpose is to help build a more engaged internal ‘community’; encouraging the parish to work together.  We do this by creating events; such as parties, gatherings or specific events to celebrate our parish family.  One of our main events during the year is the Volunteer Party – the parish consist of so many wonderful volunteers, we feel that they should be acknowledged – so, in the spring of the year, we always have an “Appreciation Party for Volunteers.”  Throughout the year there are other events; such as, the Ice Cream Social and Parish Picnic.  Our committee looks forward to planning many “fun” events in the future.

St. Joseph Workers

We are a group of men who are called on to help on a variety of jobs on the Parish grounds. Most tasks only require a couple of hours to complete, such as helping to decorate the Church for Christmas, yard work, and to help set up for the festival in September. Our numbers are small, but we are mighty! If you have some time, give us a call. We can always use more helping hands.

“With St. Joseph as our example and guide, we develop and use our gifts for the good of others.”

St. Vincent DePaul Society

We have been here at Sts. Peter and Paul for over 50 years. We provide person-to-person assistance to people in need; most of these are non-Catholic (we are all God’s children).

The Society helps the needy with: Food – Rent – Duke Energy – School supplies – Clothing – Beds – Special needs. We also provide Thanksgiving Baskets, and coordinate the parish Christmas Giving Tree.

Our main headquarters are located on Bank Street downtown. They also assist in many ways:

Home Counseling                            Legal Services

Pregnancy Counseling                   Child protection and Elder abuse

Enrichment Programs                    Homeless Shelter information

Post Adoptive Counseling               Prescription Assistance

Home Health                                     Jobs and Family Services

Handicap Counseling

Helping the needy is very rewarding.

As St. Vincent de Paul said, “See Christ in everyone”.

The Society currently has 10 members – we could use more!!!!
