More Success at SS. Peter & Paul Parish!
SS. Peter and Paul Parish had a terrific week, raising more than $100,000 this week.
At the first of three parish-wide receptions this week, Fr. Art Mattulke was asked by a parishioner who had been to a previous meeting of Upon This Rock to address the parishioners and say a few words. The man shared his story about him and his wife have recently gone through a number of personal and financial hardships. Though they first saw this initiative as another obstacle, he shared with the crowd that after reflection and prayer, they decided how important this will be for the Church.
He remarked, “I’m going to do what I can do to help… If others can do the same, then we can all be successful.” Of the twenty families that gathered, seven of the group will be making gifts that totaled $28,800. Two additional receptions held at SS. Peter and Paul saw over fifty people in attendance and raised $64,400 in total.
