Bishop Daniel E. Thomas Visits St. Peter’s

It was a busy and wonderful day!

Bishop Daniel Thomas offered Mass Thursday morning with over 750 students and staff from St. Peter’s, Mansfield St. Mary’s, Shelby St. Mary’s, Crestline St. Joseph and Bethlehem Sacred Heart Schools.

The Bishop visited with the high school seniors over lunch for a Q&A and then proceeded over to the Franciscan Activity Center to enjoy the basketball game with the priests/seminarians team vs. the eighth graders and high school seniors.  The pep band played, the cheerleaders got the crowd cheering, and the priests/seminarians came out the victors!  They really showed their basketball skills on the court!

Father Jeremy Miller talked with students during halftime about answering God’s call to vocation, possibly becoming a Priest or Sister.

Another special treat was when Director Jim Cox and members of the Theater Department talked with elementary students after lunch about the upcoming musical, “Annie”.  They performed several songs that will be highlighted on stage during the April performances.

Thank you to everyone, especially Bishop Thomas, for making this day so special.

Academic Challenge

Thank you to Academic Challenge moderator, Mrs. Maryanne Chengelis, for this info and these photos.

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!


Rev. Gregory R. Hite, M.S., S.T.L.
