Communion To Shut-Ins - P. Crawford

 Welcome to our Parish
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting with us today! Founded in 1891, St. Peter Catholic Church has a vibrant history full of faith and discipleship, and today we strive to continue the tradition of both personal and Church growth. By blending spiritual direction and teaching with the Liturgy, worship, and fellowship, we work continually to create a true Parish Family.

If you are here on vacation or visiting family, let us be your "home away from home". If you are joining us in search of a new parish, please prayerfully consider making St. Peter your Church home. And if you are here exploring the Catholic faith, we will be honored if you choose us to guide you on your spiritual journey.

If you are in need of spiritual direction or assistance of any kind, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office. We pray that the ministries we provide will be a blessing in your life. 

Feast Day Potlucks
Twice a year, the Church community of St. Peter gathers after the 10:30 a.m. Mass for a family-style potluck. On the 2nd Sunday of January and the 3rd Sunday of June, these fun luncheons are open to all Parishioners and visitors for the low cost of a dish to pass.

Holy Smoke BBQ Grill-Off
On a Saturday in the fall, after 5 pm Mass, we have a fun Parish BBQ Competition! The evening features free, relaxed fun with delicious BBQ meat sampling and voting, sides and desserts, games, a bonfire, and music. All Parishioners are welcome to join us in celebration of our St. Peter Church Family.

Annual Ox Roast Festival & Carnival
On the 3rd weekend in May, we hold our largest Parish fundraiser of the year. Open to the Community with free, live entertainment and delicious food in the Pavilion, and a Carnival & Midway provided by Schmidt Amusements, we proudly uphold the family friendly atmosphere and a wide variety of fun and entertainment that makes our Festival the most popular community event in Eaton Rapids each year!
