Altar Society (“Women Caring and Serving”)
The nickname “Women Caring and Serving” expresses our function within the parish, while continuing the rich history in the St Peter Altar Society name. Our focus continues to be service to the parish to participate where we are able. We meet from September to May on the 2nd Monday of each month in the Bishops Room @ 7:00 pm. An on-going function of our group is taking care of the funeral luncheons for our parish members. We rely on volunteers to help with setting tables, serving the food, and clean-up, including dish-washing. We encourage anyone to sign up and to be placed on a rotating call list when helpers are needed. Many hands make light work. The Spring Bazaar is an important fund raiser to help various needs of the priests and parish, such as purchase vestments and other church items. Our bazaar provided a $4,000 contribution toward replacement of our 40 year old dishwasher. Our December project is Christmas cookies for shut-ins. We provide home-made goodies and meet to package them together and enjoy fellowship. This replaces a regular meeting on the 2nd Tuesday for the month of December. On occasion we are asked to provide baked goods for church functions. If you are willing to bake for these events, please let us know so we can have your name on a calling list to fill that need. This list may also be used for our spring bazaar. We receive from our parish community various requests for help and would like to accommodate these when given enough time to plan and to contact our volunteers.
This group, open to all men of our area, meets normally on the second and fourth Saturdays at 8:45 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the Media Room. We gather to strengthen our faith and call as Catholic men through a variety of studies with videos and discussion, Bible studies, Apologetics studies and prayer together.

Claves Regni – Northern Apostle Radio
Claves Regni Ministries is a lay Catholic apostolate dedicated to leading all people into the fullness of truth found in the Catholic Church under her Supreme Pontiff, the Successor of St. Peter, who holds and keeps the keys of the Kingdom (“Claves Regni”) of heaven as the Vicar of Christ. The Apostolate has held events to foster better understanding of Catholic faith and teaching, and to that end has established Northern Apostle Radio WNOA 103.9 FM as our local Catholic Radio ministry. The station is a low-power FM station, managed by Tim and Fae Presley, featuring EWTN programing and some local programing. The Sunday 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. Peter Cathedral is broadcast by WNOA every Sunday. Please tune in and enjoy the programs!
This group was established to assist the pastor of the Cathedral in discerning the vision, goals, and actions for evangelization in our area. The group developed the parish five year plan for evangelization in response to Bishop John Doerfler’s call for all parishes and missions to do so. The Evangelization Team meets once a month for prayer, discussion, planning and evaluating efforts for helping people encounter the Lord, to grow in prayer, to be a welcoming parish, to help people know the richness of our Catholic faith, and to equip them as disciples in mission.
