New!  REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT MINISTRY  St. Peter will be mentoring a refugee family through Catholic Charities that will be locating to Charlotte in the near future.
We are looking for volunteers to assist this family in a variety of ways.  This is not a financial commitment but an opportunity to support a new family in our community and be a presence in their lives.  Adopt a family and develop lifetime relationships!

Kino Border Initiative –  In our parish effort to connect with the situations affecting migrants on our borders, we reached out to Jesuit Refugee Service/USA and the Kino Border Initiative (KBI). These Jesuit organizations companion, serve direct assistance, and advocate for people migrating to a better life.  A small delegation of St. Peter parishioners volunteered to visit the KBI in Nogales, Mexico.
