St. Paul says in  Romans that the creation has been subjected to futility. That means the natural world does not always work to our advantage. Hurricanes blow in from the sea, weeds grow up from the ground, tumors take shape in the body.  And as if that weren't bad enough, we all have to contend against the World, the Flesh and the Devil. The World (the heartless ways of human society), the Flesh (the dysfunctional side to human nature), and the Devil (who tempts us to sin whenever he can). The point being, life' s not always easy.  And that is why a Church spends a certain amount of money on pastoral ministry: people need all the spirtual help and encouragement they can get.

St. Peter's shield - small Angel Food Ministry

 Angel Food Ministry is a way for St. Peter’s to carry the love of Christ beyond our church walls by delivering home-cooked meals by parishioners to our members, who may have a new baby, recuperating from an illness or experiencing bereavement. Stocking St. Peter’s freezer with casseroles is a vital part of this ministry!

St. Peter's shield - small Parish Home Visitors Visitors

The job of the Parish Home Visitors is to maintain contact with parishioners who for various reasons, such as illness or age, cannot come to church services or events. Contact may take the form of a home visit, a telephone call, or a post card. The point being that all are important, each one belongs.
