Parish Office Phones
Our IT committee has put in many hours researching which phone system would best serve our needs. The phones have been purchased (thanks to the Ladies Sodality) and have been installed. Cables and wires are temporarily in place and we are able to receive and make phones calls and best of all retrieve voice messages. Thank you to Cheryl, Mike, and Rick for all your help and expertise. We would like to ask your patience as we learn this new phone system so please call back if we drop a call or accidentally erase a message.
Check Out Our New Banner!
As you are leaving the church, please take a moment to look at the banner hanging over the choir loft railing. Scott Iloncaie has generously donated his time, talent, and treasure to make this new banner for us here at St. Peter’s. It certainly is a beautiful addition to our Easter celebration. Thank you Scott!
Life's Connection Says Thank You!
Thank you so much St. Peter’s for donating all the diapers! We are SO appreciative of them! All of your donations keep our mission going! They will help so many families.
Attention Cemetery Lot Owners:

Plantings that interfere with the cemetery operation or maintenance or encroach on another’s lot, are subject to removal at owner’s expense.
Decorations shall be placed to the side or the front of the marker, not on the grave. Wood or metal planter boxes and plant hangers are allowed as long as they do not encroach on another lot. The lot owner is responsible for care and removal of all decorations.

No Helping Hands Rummage
Helping Hands of East Troy has let this office know that they will not be having their annual Memorial Weekend rummage Sale. If you have been saving items to donate, they thank you for your kindness and ask you to donate them to another charity.
Thank you to the Ladies Sodality!
As you know from Father Mark’s announcements, the Parish Office phone system has been on the fritz for a number of weeks. It seems we had to replace quite a bit of our system but we are very close to having it back up and running. The Ladies Sodality have generously given us a gift of monies towards the new phone system. Please join us in thanking them and please continue to support them so they can continue to spread Christ’s love.
