Don’t Waste Money On Therapy!

You are personally invited to join the choir! Singing builds confidence, reduces stress and anxiety,  and raises endorphins! So come out for a rehearsal or two and see what a great time we have! Rehearsals start Wednesday, September 6th at 5:30pm! Contact our Music Director, Rachel Krimm at rkrimm@stpeterslagrange.net for more information!

Bulletin Advertising

Due to a family emergency, Mr. Bill Mackall of Liturgical Publications, the publisher of our bulletin, had to postpone his visit to our office until the week of August 7th. He will be here setting up advertising sponsorships for the bulletin. Please consider advertising in our parish bulletin and recommending such an ad to businesses you patronize that would benefit from presenting their goods and services to our membership. If you are interested or would like more information, please call Bill directly at 678-852-4191. Thank you in advance for your generous support, and please patronize our advertisers!
