And I tell you, you are Peter,
and on this rock I will build my church,
and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven,
and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
~ Matthew 16:18-19 (NRSV)

Dear Parish Family,
I would encourage you to continue to be faithful not only in your Sunday giving to the parish but also in your support of this year’s Diocese of Joliet Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal. Thanks to the parishioners who have contributed and pledged to the annual appeal this year. At Saint Peter the Apostle Parish we still have a way to go as you can see from the numbers below (as of August 29, 2021).
2021 Goal for Saint Peter the Apostle Parish - $52,400
Amount Pledged to date - $51,805
Amount Paid to date - $49,605
Please help our parish reach our mandated target goal by next month. Gifts are slowly coming in so let’s make a tremendous effort this week or month so we can move on to other important matters in our parish. Please find a pledge envelope at the entrances of the church. Fill it out with your payment or pledge and drop it in the Sunday collection or mail it to the Diocese. You can also make your gift online through the Diocesan website by clicking on the link above.
Simply do what you can, allow the Lord to direct you in your generosity, take your part in the work of Jesus Christ – be a partner in caring for God’s people. Consider becoming a member of the Bishop’s Deo Gratias Society. God bless you for your generosity and support.
