St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church offers numerous ways for our parishioners to get involved with parish ministry. Please familiarize yourself with our ministry opportunities. If you are a parishioner in need, or know of someone who would benefit from one of our ministries, we encourage you to contact the chairperson of that ministry so that he/she can follow up with you and share information about that ministry. If you have been nourished through this parish community and are looking for a way to become more fully involved, please read through these descriptions and prayerfully discern where you may be able to share your gifts with others. Please contact Elizabeth Martin at (434) 636-6277 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
