Grief and Consolation Ministry

Contact Tim Durkin - (650) 359-6313


For nearly 25 years, St. Peter Parish has adopted poor families in  Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Pajaro, near Watsonville, California.  St. Peter parishioners sponsor a Christmas Fiesta for the poor migrant farm worker families of this parish, who might not otherwise be able to experience some of the joys of Christmas that we take for granted.  Those parishioners adopting families purchase gifts and food for the families in Pajaro and take them down early in December each year for the Fiesta.  Come join this ministry.
