Preparing for First Communion

Father Jeremy visited with second graders to explain the Mass kit and how the items are used in Mass.  It will be displayed in the classroom as they begin preparing for First Communion.  They even braved the cold to try out the Thurible!

St. Peter’s Director of Development

February 27, 2015


Dear Friends in Christ,

I am pleased to announce that Mr. Jason Crundwell has accepted the position of  St. Peter’s Director of Development.

Mr. Crundwell comes to us with a good deal of experience as Digital Director of WISH-TV in Indianapolis and Internet Content Director of KRIS-TV in Corpus Christi, Texas.

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications with an emphasis in Broadcasting and Public Relations.  This background, along with his independent work in Digital Marketing, gives him strong qualifications for the work of Development.

Mr. Crundwell is an alumnus of St. Peter’s School (’95), and I believe our St. Peter’s community will find him to be skilled in communication and passionate about the mission of our Catholic school and the work of St. Peter’s Parish.

A practicing Catholic, Jason and his family will be relocating to Mansfield. Please WELCOME him to our St. Peter’s Parish community!
