You are invited to join us for the 2015 Sts. Peter & Paul Parish Mission "Live With Passion!" Fr. Cedric Pisegna, C.P., our mission preacher, is a Passionist priest who has traveled around the United States and Canada, preaching over 400 missions and retreats for 25 years. Fr. Cedric produces a program for TV & Radio, Live with Passion!, which presently airs nationally and internationally on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) and other networks. He has numerous CDs and DVDs on Christian living and has authored nineteen books.
What is a Mission?
A parish mission is a three day retreat or "revival" for the parish community. During this time the universal message of the Gospel and of the Church is preached. It is a time of God's special grace. Through prayer, music, and the preaching of God's word, Fr. Cedric tries to create an atmosphere through which peoples' hearts will be touched. The centerpiece of the mission is the Lord Jesus Christ and his Paschal Mystery: Jesus died so that we could be forgiven, he rose so we could know new life, he will come again in Glory to raise us up and take us home to Heaven. Fr. Cedric will focus on Jesus and lead people into a deeper relationship with his. New life is the goal and purpose of the mission; the refreshing new life that God offers us in the Holy Spirit.
Please join us for three days of inspiration! Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday - October 12th, 13th, and 14th. Join us for morning Mass each day at 8:30am in the Chapel, where Fr. Cedric will celebrate Mass and preach the homily. Come back each evening at 7pm in the Church for the Monday night Session, Tuesday night Reconciliation Service, and Wednesday night Mass of the Holy Spirit. Please bring your family and friends. Babysitting will be provided for Pre-K through 5th grade in the Sts. Peter/Paul classroom in the Parish Hall.

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.

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.
