Treasuring Our Past - Preserving Our Future

Ss. Peter & Paul parishioners should have received their personal campaign packets from Fr. Quint for the capital campaign. Please pray over what your commitment will be and return the card in the envelope provided. We will need everyone's maximum commitment for this dream to become a reality! If you were unable to attend our Launching Event or would like to look back at the event, you can watch the video on YouTube under SS. Peter & Paul Launching Event 2018 by clicking on the link above. You can also click on the KCRG TV link to view the piece they aired about the restoration and campaign on May 7th.

 

Restoration Fundraiser through Schwan's

A campaign fundraiser has been set up for the SS. Peter & Paul Capital Campaign with the Schwan's Company. Please log on to the web site www.schwans.com and use #38643 in the fundraiser slot when placing your order. A percentage of your order will be credited to the campaign. Gift cards can be purchased from the site as well. The first 45 days are the most profitable, but we are able to use this fundraiser until the end of September. So, if you order once a month, please use the fundraiser each time you order. Thank you for your support!

Grant Money

GRANT MONEY ~ The Archdiocese of Dubuque has grant money for those considering an undergraduate or graduate degree in Religious Study through Clarke University, Loras College or Mount Mercy University.  Funding from the Archdiocese of Dubuque consists of payment for one-third of the tuition per credit hour for major related courses for candidates approved by pastors.  For more information, call Dan Rohner in the Office of Leadership Development at 563-556-2580 and talk with him about the program.  Those accepting funds are asked to serve three years in ministry in the Archdiocese after completion of degree work.

Marriage

MARRIAGE:

For one reason or another, at times couples choose to be married on a beach, at a park, or in the courthouse.  Catholics are bound to be married in a church, before a priest, with 2 witnesses.  If they do otherwise, without consultation and permission, their marriages are invalid sacraments and these individuals have absented themselves from the communion of the church, no longer able to receive the sacraments.  We can help!  Contact one of the priests or deacons today to begin the process of healing.

Formation for all ~ online program
