Help Wanted!

OUR MINISTRIES NEED YOUR HELP!

St. Peter has 65 ministries listed in our Annual Report that impact the spiritual, educational and community life of our Parish Family. Each ministry was asked to identify their needs to help them attain their goals and expand our outreach. We hope, as we begin our Year of Participation, that each member of our Parish Family will review the following ministry opportunities and contribute in some fashion, big or small!

This is a very brief introduction to current ministry openings. Please visit the ministries' pages to find more information about each ministry and organization.
