The Altar Society is a ministry of parish women who volunteer to maintain the Church altar, organize and host parish activities and receptions when requested. Fundraisers for our ministry include the St. Peter Fall Bizarre held the second Saturday in October, two Gene Francis concession stands for the local auction and the Adorned Table Luncheon in early April. Our funeral committee hosts a cookie reception and funeral dinner for families of the parish upon request. The Altar Society is a great source of sisterhood and invites all women of the parish to attend our meetings and activities. Meetings are held @ 7 p.m. the 3 rd Thursday of the month between September and May. Salad suppers are held in September and May @ 6:30 p.m. with meeting to follow.

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to call a contact on this web page or look in the parish directory for an officer’s number.
