St. Peter the Apostle parish’s 66th annual commemoration of Ss. Peter and Paul (Petrovdan) was held on Sunday, July 9.   This day, at which we gather to honor our patron saint, is always a day of great joy.

On this very warm summer day here in the heart of California’s Central Valley, we gathered as a Eucharistic parish community which has been mystically identified with Ss. Peter & Paul—through Christ—to specifically ask them to intercede in our behalf, and to glorify God  “who is wonderful in His saints.”
