"You have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the first-born who are enrolled in heaven, and to a judge who is God of all, an to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks more graciously than the blood of Abel" (Hebrews 12:22-24).
The purpose of the Altar Society is to promote spirituality and sociability among the members of St. Peter Parish and to assist the pastor with the care of the sanctuary and the church.
Activities include church cleaning and decorating for Christmas and Easter and fundraising events like the annual garage sale in June and numerous bake sales through the course of the year. The proceeds from these sales have been used to furnish new vestments for the priests and deacons, altar boy cassocks and surplices, and liturgical supplies for the church.
The Altar Society also moderates Martha Circle, a group that serves food at funeral luncheons and also provides desserts and supplemental foods for these same luncheons. The Martha Circle is always looking for new members to share in this unique corporeal and spiritual work of mercy. For more information on Martha Circle, click here.
