Church News

St. Peter will hold our parish celebration for parishioners and the community on Friday, August 11 from 5:00 – 9:00 PM on our campus and Broadway. Live music, food trucks, country store, giveaways, kids zone and a beer garden will all be included in the fun!


We need help from our parish family to make this a great time for all. Please visit our volunteer sign up link, https://signup.com/go/cqjaAbZ to volunteer some of your time that evening. Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt; please add your shirt size in the comments field.


Please keep in mind that all adult volunteers (graduated high school) who work with children need to be VIRTUS certified (trained and background checked). If you are an event volunteer, you only need to sign up with the VIRTUS office to have a background check run. No one will see the results of this check; it is only for safe environment purposes. The link to get this done is: https://diojeffcity.org/safe-environment-archive/single-occasion-volunteer-form/ Please be sure this is done before the event.


Items needed for the Country Store! We are asking for donations of cakes, pies, treats, or whatever you would like to donate that can be sold that evening! Please bring offerings from 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM to Selinger Centre gym on August 11. Thank you for your contributions to our event! Bring the family for a night of fun, food and friendship!
