Are you missing blessing yourself with holy water?
Under COVID restrictions, the Archdiocese has stated we are not allowed to have holy water fonts in the churches. However, you still can get holy water if you want it! How?
- Our stainless-steel holy water canister inside St. Peter's church (near the Holy Famly Room) is filled, and you may fill your small bottle (or take one of ours) for your personal use.
- We now have 'automatic dispensers' of holy water at both entrances to St. Peter's church. Simply put your hand beneath the nozzle and a few drops of holy water will be dispensed.

Lord, God Almighty, creator of all life, of body and soul, we ask you to bless this water: as we use it in faith forgive our sins and save us from all illness and the power of evil. Lord, in your mercy give us living water, always springing up as a fountain of salvation; free us, body and soul, from every danger, and admit us to your presence in purity of heart.
