Invitation to Holy Week

Fr. Robbie invites you to join St. Peter’s during Holy Week beginning next Sunday, March 25th with Palm Sunday. What is Holy Week? Holy Week is a time to remember Christ’s final week on earth taking us through his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, His last supper, death on the cross, and finally His victorious resurrection.

Check out our FB events for more information about each opportunity during Holy Week or visit our Journey to Easter page.

Bishop’s Visit 2018

This past Sunday, Bishop Morales joined us for Holy Eucharist.  During worship, Bp. Morales encouraged us to continue to be rooted, compassionate, and missional in our community.  After his sermon, Bp. Morales marked the candidate for baptism with the sign of the cross and Fr. Rob baptized him at the font.  Following the baptism, Bp. Morales confirmed the candidates for confirmation sealing their belief and trust in Christ.  It was a beautiful day welcoming the Bishop and supporting our newest members in their decision of faith.

Journey to Easter

Lent is in full swing at St. Peter’s.  As we pray, fast, and give through the season, we are looking ahead to victory in Christ’s resurrection.  During these 40 days we invite you to join us as we pray for community, collect donations for a local resource center – Love, Inc; and personally fast to grow closer to God.

Before the 40 days of Lent are over we will enter into Holy Week.  What is Holy Week?  A time to remember Christ’s last week before His glorious resurrection.  During Holy Week, we will have several opportunities to gather together and live into the various parts that the lead to the triumphant resurrection of Christ.  Living into Holy Week brings a sense of awe and victory to Easter Sunday.  We hope you’ll join us…

Feel free to check out more about Lent and Holy Week at St. Peter’s here.

Canton Lego Builders Club Expands

Canton Lego Builders Club is expanding to provide building opportunities throughout the Canton area.  Last week we had the privilege to kick off Westview Lego Builders Club at Westview Elementary!  Students K-4th grade enjoyed a time of “free building” with volunteers and parents.  The Westview Cafeteria was buzzing with 70 students plus parents and volunteers building various creations.  It was a fantastic kick off!

Canton Lego Builders Club is excited to partner with other churches to sponsor additional lego clubs throughout Canton!  We’ll post more once details are finalized!  If your church or organization would like to sponsor a lego club, please contact Fr. Rob for more information.

The Latest Happenings

We’ve been busy at St. Peter’s the past few weeks reaching out to our community here in Canton.  Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening at St. Peter’s…..


Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper

On November 11th, we had the privilege to serve our local veterans at our Annual Veterans Day Soup and Chili Supper.  The evening included a raffle, 50/50 Drawing, and delicious soups and chili.  All the proceeds from the 50/50 drawing were given to  the family of Sgt. Douglas Riney while all other proceeds were given to the Canton VFW to help our local veterans in need.  This year we were blessed to have a large portion of the food donated by Canton Hy-Vee and several raffle items were donated by WBYS, Black Maple, and American Grille.  Volunteers from the local Girl Scouts, St. Peter’s, and other community members helped to make the event possible.  It was a fantastic night to see our community rally together to serve those who served our country.



Lego Builders Club Rings Bells

Canton Lego Builders Club served our community by ringing bells for the Canton Salvation Army at Farm King.  It was a great way to put what we have learned at LBC into practice.  The Salvation Army did a volunteer highlight of the builders ringing which helped the kids see the importance of what they were doing.


St. Nicholas Day Celebration

On December 6th, we had our Annual St. Nicholas Day Celebration.  The evening included a special visit from St. Nicholas who told us stories about his work and Christmas traditions, fun St. Nicholas inspired games like a penny toss, and crafts.  The night was filled with joy as kids ran from  station to station and enjoyed delicious treats.

Lego Day Camp 2017

Last Saturday, we had the pleasure of building with 32 children at our 2nd Annual Summer Lego Day Camp!  It was a blast for not only the builders, but also the volunteers.  Builders worked together to make Lego brick volcanoes, used stamps and crayons to make Lego brick art, and created creations through games.  We look forward to welcoming everyone on Saturday, August 5th at our first meeting of the new year!  To find out more about Lego Builders Club, click here.

Fun on the Square

This weekend we partnered with the Canton Area Chamber of Commerce and Canton Main Street at their Music in the Park and Kids Fest.  On Friday night, we had a blast at Music in the Park passing out popcorn and fans to all the concert attendees.  We are looking forward to providing free popcorn and fans to attendees every Friday night for the rest of the concert series.

On Saturday morning, we had a “Hulk” of a good time at our “Hulk Smash” booth at Kids Fest.  The kids blasted through the walls so quickly, we had to enlist extra volunteers to rebuild the walls.  It was a fantastic experience and we look forward to participating again next year.  We loved having the opportunity to meet new families and make more connections within our community.

Legos at the Park

On Wednesday, we teamed up with the YMCA’s Summer Parks and Recreation Program for some Lego fun!  We built various creations including fidget spinners and played Lego games.  It was a fantastic opportunity not only to share about Lego Builders Club, but also to share the love of Christ with kids in our community.
