Welcome to Ss Peter & Paul Catholic Church!
Welcome to the home page of Ss Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church. Our parish family invites you to join us for Mass and to take part in the other activities of our church. We feature an Altar & Rosary Society, Holy Name Society, Spiritual Life Committee, Music Ministry, Liturgical Ministries (lector, eucharistic minister, altar server, usher/greeter), and our own cemetery.
Donations for the benefit of Madeline Marzen
Madeline Marzen is the granddaughter of Mary and Carl Marzen, our parish music ministers. Madeline has been diagnosed with an inoperative brain tumor, and has several other lesions or tumors along her spine. She is currently at the Boston Children's Hospital.
While there are many unknowns at this time, we do know that both Amie and Andy (Madeline's parents) will need the love, support, and generosity of their community in the coming months. Donations will be used to pay medical expenses, expenses for the Marzens to stay close to Boston, compensate for lost wages so both Amie and Andy can support Madeline in any way needed.
If you do not feel comfortable donating online but still wish to support the Marzen family financially, Amie and Andy could also use donations in the form of gas cards or Amazon cards.
But most of all, please pray for Madeline and her family.

Pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory
Prayer of St. Gertrude for the Holy Souls:
Eternal Father, I offer you the Most Precious Blood of your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with all the Masses said throughout the world today for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
Prayer of Cardinal Newman
O most gentle heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in purgatory, have mercy on the souls of Your servants.
Bring them from the shadows of exile to Your bright home in heaven, where we trust You and Your Blessed Mother have woven for them a crown of unfolding bliss. Amen.
