Good Afternoon Everyone, 
We are requesting donations for our upcoming Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Every year, this important, FREE outreach meal feeds several individuals who would otherwise not experience the joy of a Thanksgiving meal.

This year, rather than asking for you to take any of your time during this busy season to making the side dishes, we are simply asking that you provide us with the main items used for each, with the exception of a few sides that are easily provided in whole.

In the Gathering Space, you will find the Donation Turkey and Volunteer Tree. Each board has tags listing items and volunteer opportunities. Please prayerfully consider how you can help us this year, and put the name half of the tag filled out completely into the box next to its coordinating board.

This is St. Peter’s 10th year hosting this FREE Thanksgiving Meal, an undertaking we could not do without the generosity of each of you!

We thank each of for your help again this year. We look forward to sharing together our many blessings from God with all those who join us for Thanksgiving Day! 
Please contact Scott or IvyLynn Olson for more information.
God Bless, 
St. Peter Catholic Church, Eaton Rapids, MI

 Welcome to our Parish
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting with us today! Founded in 1891, St. Peter Catholic Church has a vibrant history full of faith and discipleship, and today we strive to continue the tradition of both personal and Church growth. By blending spiritual direction and teaching with the Liturgy, worship, and fellowship, we work continually to create a true Parish Family.

If you are here on vacation or visiting family, let us be your "home away from home". If you are joining us in search of a new parish, please prayerfully consider making St. Peter your Church home. And if you are here exploring the Catholic faith, we will be honored if you choose us to guide you on your spiritual journey.

If you are in need of spiritual direction or assistance of any kind, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office. We pray that the ministries we provide will be a blessing in your life. 

Feast Day Potlucks
Twice a year, the Church community of St. Peter gathers after the 10:30 a.m. Mass for a family-style potluck. On the 2nd Sunday of January and the 3rd Sunday of June, these fun luncheons are open to all Parishioners and visitors for the low cost of a dish to pass.

Annual Ox Roast Festival & Carnival
On the 3rd weekend in May, we hold our largest Parish fundraiser of the year. Open to the Community with free, live entertainment and delicious food in the Pavilion, and a Carnival & Midway provided by Schmidt Amusements, we proudly uphold the family friendly atmosphere and a wide variety of fun and entertainment that makes our Festival the most popular community event in Eaton Rapids each year!
