COVID-19 Safety Protocols

To follow the CDC recommendations that everyone — including those who are fully vaccinated, if you feel you are at risk — wear masks in public indoor settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the leadership at SSPP has decided to continue the safety protocols inside the building to ensure maximum care of our parishioners, visitors and guests.  You can help keep everyone safe by wearing a mask at all times while in the building. 

Stay tuned to our website, Facebook page and our twice monthly E-News for continued updates.

All Are Welcome at SsPP!

Reflecting the welcome that Jesus Christ offers to all, Ss. Peter and Paul Parish welcomes every person to seek full participation in our parish community without regard to age, sex, race, cultural background, physical or mental health or ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, social or economic situation, marital status, or faith background. We do not seek to erase our differences, but rather lovingly embrace the uniqueness of each person as we strive to grow together in holiness.

The Pope Francis Center provides a welcoming, safe place for those experiencing homelessness to tend to their most basic and vital needs. PFC treats each of their guests as a whole person, ministering to their mind, body and spirit, while honoring them with dignity, fairness and respect.
