A new continuing parish ministry, St. Peter Sages, is for those parish members who are growing older and centers on spirituality, service, and social activities aimed specifically at the senior stages in life. All adults in the parish who are growing older are invited to join. Registration for events will be posted, but space is limited at events. If you would like to be on our email list or have any questions, please contact [email protected].
