Welcome to our St. Peter Damian Parish Website!

 

PARISH EVENTS

 

St. Peter Damian would like to begin a Young Adults Group.  The purpose of the group is to provide an enjoyable, regular time, wherein young men and women can put down their cell phones, build good and lasting friendships, deepen their faith with regular prayer, increase their knowledge with instruction and conversation and simply have some time away from the craziness of the world with people of like hearts and minds.  It is about growing authentic relationships with your brothers and sisters and with Jesus Christ.

 This group is open to all men and women, ages 21-35, single and married. 

 The next meeting is scheduled for Saturday, May 19th at 6:30 pm.

 Adult Faith Formation Presents

 

The Footprints of God: Moses - Signs, Sacraments, and Salvation


What do Moses, miracles, and mountains have to do with our Savior, salvation, and the
sacraments? Find out as Adult Faith Formation presents Moses...Signs, Sacraments
and Salvation. Born a slave, raised a prince, and humbled in exile, Moses returned to
confront the mighty Pharaoh with only a staff and the promise of God.

Join the adventure as Steve Ray, best-selling author and popular Bible teacher, takes
you on an incredible journey of discovery through Egypt, Jordan, and Israel. Cross the
Red Sea, wander the wilderness, and climb Mount Sinai. You'll discover how Moses,
the Exodus, and the Hebrew experience in the wilderness beautifully point to the
coming of Christ and our salvation. Retrace the journey of the Israelites and discover
the roots of our Christian faith. Gain a deeper appreciation of our Savior, and of the
Church and her sacraments.


The session will be conducted in the Rectory Meeting Room at 7:00pm on May 24th.
Following the video presentation, there will be a discussion period Please call the
parish office to register. No fees are charged.

Pentecost Sunday
Caution: Spirit at Work

If Pentecost celebrates the gifts of the Spirit, it can tempt us to separate the Spirit from the Father and Jesus. Sometimes we think of the Father as the God of the Old Testament, Jesus as center of New Testament, and the Spirit as God of the present age, almost as if the Father and Jesus were enjoying their retirement. No, we have one God who is over all and in all.

The Spirit has been active in all ages. The prophets were empowered by the Spirit to proclaim God's word to Israel. Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus was filled with the Spirit as he preached and worked miracles. Then at Pentecost the disciples were filled with the Spirit.
The Spirit's gifts are meant to be shared. The prophets could not help proclaim God's message. Jesus shared all he knew with his disciples. The disciples went out to the world to spread the news of Jesus' death and resurrection. So we, too, are given gifts to be shared. 
As we come to realize how much God has done for us and how close he is to us, we will want to share that with others. Obviously, we can't make everyone believe in Jesus. But how sad would it be if someone we know was looking for the truth and we neglected to offer it?

Action Plan
MISSION ACTION PLAN

The people of St. Peter Damian Parish are on a lifelong faith journey.  Every day we will place our trust in a living God our Savior has revealed to us. His loving providence will be an integral part of our everyday life.  As His disciples we will allow the Holy Spirit to form us in the ways of the Word of God entrusted to the Church. We will be serving our brothers and sisters with more compassion and love. We will be celebrating His real presence in the Eucharist with more enthusiasm. We will be spending more of our personal and family time for prayer, the Holy Scriptures, and spiritual growth. We aspire to lead a life of virtue so as to evangelize more effectively, witness more courageously, and share the Gospel with more joy.

Spiritual growth is our priority. Invoking the strength of God’s grace, we will be steadfastly engaging all ages into ongoing catechesis within Lifelong Faith Formation. To know who Christ is, we will commit to all aspects of Catholic faith in a holistic, cross-generational and comprehensive way. Faith Formation will embrace our entire personal development:  human, intellectual, and spiritual. Being continuously formed into intentional disciples, we will make every effort to extend more biblical studies, service projects, ministries and events for all ages, training programs, interdisciplinary learning, and above all worship in truth and spirit. 

Giving glory to God makes us fully alive. We will be an intensely alive community sharing God’s gifts. We will be on fire to “go and make disciples of all nations.” (Matthew 28: 19-20) We will proclaim the greatness of the Lord and deeply rejoice in all God’s blessings. We will passionately share time, talent, and treasure. We will be hospitable and inviting. We will appreciate diversity among people. By Jesus’ Gospel, we are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. We will be fully alive in Christ and in our community.

We realize that this path will be challenging, but we will always remember the words of St. Peter Damian, our parish Patron: “Do not be depressed. Do not let your weakness make you impatient. Instead, let the serenity of your spirit shine through your face. Let the joy of your mind burst forth. Let words of thanks break from your lips.”
