1. March for Life Bus Trip: Some things are worth repeating and this is one of those things:


The Knights of Columbus Council 14755 will be sponsoring a bus from St. Peter Church on January 27, 2017 to attend the March for Life in Washington, DC. We will start boarding the bus at 10:00 a.m. and plan to leave the parking lot by 10:30 a.m. The cost for the trip is $20.00 per person and checks can be made payable to the Knights of Columbus. We will have a sign-up sheet in the back of the church for those of you interested in going to the March. We only have room for 56 people and it will be first come, first served. The departure time from DC will be discussed on the bus. If you have any questions, please call Tom Junk at (540) 987-8617 or email him at

2. Will the real DRE please stand up? There’s probably no more exciting and interesting Website this side of Grand Teton National Park than the St. Peter Catholic Church site. It’s chock full of inspiring content, parish news, and items guaranteed to generate animated discussion. Furthermore, it provides an excellent place to monitor the proceedings of this period of “hope and change” in our parish.

Having said all the above with my tongue firmly lodged in my cheek, I find myself without words to explain the disparity with which items are updated on the parish site. On one hand, when one views the Parish Contacts page, one will find the position of Director of Religious Education (DRE) and a name and email address along with it. Based on our review of parish bulletins that person probably has not been the DRE since mid-2015. Then, when one refers to page 98 of the brand new, official 2017 Diocesan Directory, one will find that our Pastor is listed as the St. Peter’s DRE. If this is so, one would wonder wonderingly why the parish Website hasn’t been updated to reflect that change. Of course, we could have it all wrong. So that is why we are asking, “Will the real DRE please stand up?

As to the disparity with which items are updated, in contrast to the DRE position, It took but a very few short days for my name to be removed from the parish site when I was relieved from my position on the Parish Pastoral Council. Oh, and by the way, the last name of one of the current Pastoral Council members is misspelled. (Here)

There, having said my piece, I can return my tongue to its normal operating position.
