Parish Auxiliary at Saint Peter
The committee is comprised of an Executive, Reception Coordinator and 4 Team Leaders who coordinator the receptions. Each Team consists of members from the community who volunteer with the prep work and help out at the funeral receptions.

The revenue received by the Auxiliary is used for renovations and repairs to the parish centre building.  It also provides equipment replacements for the kitchen and supplies for all parish use.

 The work of the Auxiliary is a very important Ministry within the Parish.  We are very blessed with volunteers from the Parish helping us; however, we are in great need of volunteers to join our teams to continue this work.  This ministry involves a few hours maybe six times a year to help out. 

 If you would like to become a member of this Ministry, please contact the Parish Office.

Saint Vincent de Paul Society at Saint Peter & Immaculate Conception

Officially established on June 10, 1978, the St. Vincent de Paul Society has been widely active in the community. 

Members of the Society tend to the needs of the poor by providing emergency groceries, clothing, and shelter. We also provide some occasional services including an Annual Christmas Dinner. At this dinner, all the individuals and families we serve throughout the year are invited together for a wonderful meal in a welcoming and open atmosphere.​

Donations of food may be left at the front entrance to the Church on Sunday or brought to the Parish Office at anytime. Financial donations should be clearly marked "Saint Vincent de Paul" and put in the collection basket. ​

Membership is open to any parishioner who feels called to serve those in need and is ready to commit to the rule of the society.
