St. Peter’s Boy Scout Troop honored veterans this past week by replacing the veteran tags on many of the headstones. Our local WMFD television station was there to cover the event.
Our theme this year is “Fishers of Men” as we take those three days to explore Jesus’ miracles while he was here on earth and what miracles are in our lives today! The cost is free but goodwill donations are always accepted!
If you are interested in having your child participate, please contact Elizabeth Wurm at the parish office at 419-524-2572 or through e-mail at email@example.com.
Preregistration is required by July 1. We hope your child can join us for three days of faith and fun!
As he prepares to leave St. Peter’s Parish, please keep our beloved Father Tom in your prayers. Father Tom will celebrate Mass on Sunday, June 23, and a farewell reception will follow in the Franciscan Activity Center Atrium.
The following message from Father Tom McQuillen appeared in the parish bulletin on March 31.
“On March 30, the office of the Bishop announced that I am being reassigned. Beginning this summer, my new assignment will be at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Cincinnati, also called the Athenaeum of Ohio. The Diocese of Toledo has sent seminarians there to study for a long time. Among the alumni are Father Hite and Father Borgia. I will be part of the formation team and be teaching some courses to the young men preparing for priesthood. I am looking forward to this opportunity to be a part of the lives of these seminarians.
My previous experience in the seminary in Africa reminds me of the hope that new vocations give to the Church, and the energy and zeal which they bring to the ministry. Please keep me in your prayers as I continue my priestly ministry in this new assignment.” Father Tom

Our Catholic faith is at the center of everything at St. Peter’s School. Parish priests, the Franciscan Sisters, administrators, faculty, and staff–in partnership with parents–have educated and formed generations of Catholic children in our faith. Children of all faiths and socioeconomic conditions have received the best of educations at St. Peter’s School. SPHS alumni are everywhere, making wonderful contributions to their communities.
Mass is celebrated weekly with all the school children and at certain times during the year, an all-school Mass is scheduled with all students–first graders through seniors in high school–praying and receiving the Eucharist together.
We thank our parish priests, area priests who also visit to celebrate Mass, our Music and Liturgy Director, and the musical ensemble of school students who make these Masses special times of worship and song.
