 The week of June 15th through June 20th, Totus Tuus Summer Faith Camp is returning to St. Peter Damian Catholic Church.  This week long faith camp is dedicated to help young people develop their relationship with Jesus Christ.  A team of four missionaries (two men and two women, college students and seminarians) from the Midwest area are trained to put on a "parish mission for our youth" in order to teach and inspire them.  The Grade School Program is designed for children entering first through sixth grade in the 2014-2015 year. This program will run Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Space will be limited to 80 children. The Junior High/High School Program will offer evening sessions for youth entering grades 7-12. The Junior High/High School program will run Sunday through Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm-9:00 pm.

Sunday May 4th - May Crowning

It is a Catholic tradition to honor Mary, our Mother during the month of May. One of the ways we honor Mary is to place on her statue a crown of flowers, this is known as May crowning. This occasion gives children an opportunity to honor the Blessed Mother and give thanks to her for bringing Jesus into the world. May crowning will take place at St. Peter Damian on Sunday, May 4th at the 11:00am mass. After mass, weather permitting, there will be a procession from the Main church to the Marian Shrine where the crowning of Mary will take place. (If it should rain, May crowning will take place in the church at the conclusion of 11:00am Mass.) We invite all children 5 yrs. and up to take part in this special procession. Everyone should wear their Sunday best. 1st Communion children should wear their 1st Communion outfits for this special event. If possible each child should bring a fresh flower that can be placed by the statue of Mary. Children should meet Mrs. Hendrickson in the Vestibule of the church before mass begins.
