The season after Pentecost is both the longest and last season in the liturgical year and is the second of the two seasons known as Ordinary Time. Here, we celebrate our role as the church in the ongoing life of Christ in the world, guided by the companionship and inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
Ordinary Time is a time for growth and maturation, a time in which the mystery of Christ is called to penetrate ever more deeply into history until all things are finally caught up in Christ. The goal, toward which all of history is directed, is represented by the final Sunday in Ordinary Time, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe.
Here in Ordinary Time, the life of Christ is lived through us, the church, as we give faithful attention to our formation, devotion, ministry, and mission on a daily basis.
Adult Choir – Rehearsals for the Adult Choir resume on Wednesday, September 11 at 7:00 PM in the Choir Room. This choir normally sings at the 10 AM Mass and welcomes singers from 9th grade through late adulthood. New members are encouraged! Please contact Paul Kusler, (407) 636-4277 or firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in joining or for more information.
The Children’s Choir is open to all children in our parish who are in grades 3 through 8. There are two opportunities each week for rehearsal. The choir rehearses mid-week on Wednesday afternoon from 3:30-4:15pm and Sunday afternoon from 1:00 – 1:45pm (immediately after the 12:00 Sunday Mass). Children and parents can pick the rehearsal day or they can come to both rehearsals. The choir sings at the 12:00pm Sunday Mass once or twice a month, including Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday. We are looking for help from parents to help manage the rehearsals and help out at Mass. Rehearsals begin in September on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, and on Sunday, September 22, 2019.
Pope St. John Paul II put it this way: “As a manifestation of the human spirit, music performs a function which is noble, unique, and irreplaceable. When it is truly beautiful and inspired, it speaks to us more than all the other arts of goodness, virtue, peace, of matters holy and divine. For good reason it has always been, and it will always be, an essential part of the liturgy.”

We invite you to consider our new electronic giving program as a way to automate your regular weekly offerings.
Electronic giving is convenient for you and provides much-needed consistency for our church. There is no cost for you to participate.
As an example, if you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year, instead you can set up online donations and simply drop your empty envelope into the basket each week as an attendance record. And when illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending mass, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.

"Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord!"
"To listen to the Word is to have a personal encounter with God. Psalm 119 guides us towards the Gospel and fulfillment of the law of Jesus Christ. The Lord and His Word are our 'land' in which we live in communion and joy.
Each year during Our Catholic Appeal, you affirm the Lord and His Word by your generous response in supporting the ministries of the Diocese of Orlando. You open your hearts to the gift of these ministries because they help each one of you to live more fully in God's Law and to prosper our land with His majestic love. From honoring the divinity of each life, to teaching people of all ages about our faith, to sharing our resources with those who are alone or in need, to holding our parishes accountable for your stewardship in the Lord's name, these ministries bring forth God's law in our land."

Sts. Peter & Paul Parish was established on July 27, 1967. We celebrated our first Mass on August 13, 1967, on the grounds of Camp San Pedro. During the following two years, Pastor Michael Troy and 200 families were a community on the road, celebrating Mass in San Pedro Center, New Hope Baptist Church and Aloma Elementary School. On November 1, 1969, we celebrated the first Mass in the domed recreational building. It served not only as our church, but also the rectory, church offices, ministry meeting room and community auditorium.
