DO YOU LIKE TO COOK? CAN YOU HELP OUT OCCASIONALLY?
St. Peter’s is blessed with a wonderful group of folks who provide funeral luncheons for families and their friends. They are in need of a few people to help out with cooking and/or serving for the families in our school cafe after the Mass or burial service.
Can you help them out? For more information or to volunteer, please call Carol Hennningfeld at 642-7843.
