To our Community of Catholic Women


As Pastor of St Peter the Apostle Parish, I would like to welcome you to our Spirit-filled Community of Catholic Women. This group is a very dedicated organization supporting, empowering and educating the women of our parish in spirituality, service and leadership.

May the following "Beatitudes" be yours as you join them in being a wonderful support to me and our whole community:

  • Blessed is she who suffers with the very young, the very old, and the very lonely, for she has compassion.

  • Blessed is she who greets the world with joy, laughter and anticipation, for she has courage.

  • Blessed is she who speaks gently, lives humbly, and chooses to give freely, for she has dignity.

  • Blessed is she who listens and hears and extends her hands as a friend, for she has understanding.

  • Blessed is she who gives simply, loves deeply, and walks joyfully in life, for she has sincerity.

  • Blessed is she who lives intensely and sings life's alleluias, for she has awareness.

  • Blessed is she who has compassion and courage, freedom and dignity, understanding, sincerity and awareness, for she is a woman, a gift, a blessing.

May God bless you abundantly!!!

Fr. Gerard F. Critch, Pastor
