Ministry to the Homebound and Elder Care Facilities
A group of parishioners from St. Peter’s Parish bring communion to people who are in nursing homes and assisted living facilities in our area, and also to people who are homebound due to illness or disability. This is a wonderful way to share our Eucharistic banquet with those who are nearby but unable to be with us.
If you are interested in exploring this ministry, Deacon Tim O’Donnell and his wife Elke will provide training and help with the logistics. Please contact Deacon Tim at email@example.com or 617-897-1148.
Pastoral Council & Finance Council
St. Peter’s has active Parish and Finance councils that meet periodically throughout the year assisting the Pastor in areas of parish life.
RCIA is the process through which adults are initiated into the church through the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist, and baptized Christians from other denominations come into full communion with the Catholic community. Please call Anna Molettieri at 617-547-4235 x17 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
