Fr. Peter's Post
I GIVE GOD THANKS FOR ALL OF YOU AS I MOVE TO RAPID CITY:
I am grateful to God for all of you as I answer the Lord’s call to move to Rapid City and become the new bishop there. My eleven years at the Cathedral and my six years at St. Mary Star of the Sea and Our Lady of Mercy have been a blessing that I will always remember. You will always have a special place in my heart as will all the people of the parishes I have been assigned to over the last 31 years.
The mixture of emotions of saying “good bye” and seeing what God has in store for me in Rapid City has been an interesting experience. I guess I was pretty comfortable in my priestly life up to now. I have preached about how God often works in ways that call us out of our “comfort zones.” Now I have to practice what I preach.
Thank you for all the cards and gifts. I’ll try to get thank you notes out in the coming weeks. You have been most generous.
As I leave on this Sunday afternoon to head West I promise that I will always remember where I came from (which is why I included symbols of the Iron Range and the Diocese of Duluth in my Coat of Arms) and will keep all of you in my prayers. Please pray for me as well.
God bless you always, Fr. Peter

Safe Environment Reporting
All children need and deserve nurturing from their families and communities. Yet, a safe community where children can live and grow among caring adults does not just happen. It is created by individuals who are committed and determined to shape that safe community. Abused or neglected children especially need the help of a caring community. Visit the Diocese of Duluth Safe Environment page.
