Sponsor a Poinsettia for Christmas Season

You are invited to help decorate St. Peter’s Church and remember an absent friend or family member this Christmas season by sponsoring a poinsettia. With your $30 donation, we will purchase a poinsettia and display it in the Church in remembrance of your loved one. Please submit this order form with your donation either to the parish office or in the Sunday collection. Be sure to indicate whether the honoree is deceased or serving in the military. There are special envelopes in the back of the Church. Please call the parish office with any questions (816) 363-2320.

You may have noticed some orange cones and caution tape on the Church front steps. The elements have taken a toll and caused some rust damage to the handrails. We will get them repaired and back in use as soon as possible.
