Pastoral Ministry at St. Peter’s
St. Peter’s aims to care for the spiritual needs of our parishioners at all stages of life’s journey. To get involved or for questions, please contact the parish office at 612-866-5089 or General Email.
When Pastoral Care is Needed
If your parent or someone you know in the parish has become a resident of a healthcare center or assisted living center, or if someone is homebound, please call Sr. Rita at 612-866-5089 so that arrangements can be made to visit. Also, please call if someone is hospitalized and would like a visit with Communion or Anointing of the Sick. Sr. Rita or Fr. Jerry will visit your loved one in the hospital, when possible, and would especially like to follow-up with them upon their return home or to the nursing home.
In Case of Emergency
To reach a priest because of an emergency call the parish office at 612-866-5089. If calling after hours, press option 1 after hearing our recorded voicemail greeting; please be patient as there will be a long pause during the connection to Father Jerry.
Communion for the Sick or Homebound
To bring Communion to the sick or homebound is very simple. Start with a call to Sr. Rita to be set-up. On the day of your visit to the person, come to the office and someone will get a host for you. If you are at Mass on the day of the visit, you may have a host placed in your pyx at Communion time.
How You Can Help
One of St. Peter’s strengths is its pastoral ministry, which happens in a variety of important ways. Homebound Communion, visits to care centers and hospitals, and grief ministry are all used to provide for our parishioners’ pastoral needs.
