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)

About the Event
All are invited to attend the Mass of Remembrance (The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed) on Wednesday, November 2, at the 7:00 pm Mass. This service is in memory of those buried from St. Peter the Apostle during the past year, and to pray for all deceased family members and friends, as well.
Proceeding Mass, luminaria will be lit for all requests made to remember individuals on this All Souls Day. Each luminaria will have the individual’s name on it and will be placed in formation outside. You need not be present to participate. If you cannot attend the Mass, you may wish to come to the church later and enjoy this beautiful candlelight memorial.
