Who Are We?
For over 26 years, the St. Peter's Support Group has been devoted to helping people on a peer to peer basis who are coping with a divorce or the loss of a spouse or who have never been married. Through it's leaders and dedicated volunteers, the group provides support through its' weekly meetings that include discussions and sharing which helps individuals take their minds off any current problems and also by the contributions of others who have been through similar situations (who survived and prospered). The group has a good balance of both men and women with members of all different ages.
This is a warm and caring group of sincere people who have created a community that supplies generous support and friendship not only to its' members, but also gives support to local, needy causes that come to its' attention.
First time visitors are offered an orientation and sharing meeting guided by one of the long time group leaders. For more information, send an email to either: or
Our Train Ride
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step off the train, leaving us on this journey alone.
As time goes by, other people will board the train and they will be significant like our siblings, friends, children and even the love of your life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats.
This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all the passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.
The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So we must live in the best way, love, forgive and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty, we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on this train of life.
I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.
Lastly, I want to thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.

Giving Back - Make A Difference For Others
Throughout the year, the group participates in supporting different community needs with volunteers and donations of food, clothing, gifts and love.
The funds for these gifts are generated throughout the year from the 50/50 club payouts and additional resources including contributions of cash or gifts from the membership.
Interested members can participate by making contributions of time, involvement, money or toy gifts. A sign-up clip board is available where members can add their name to indicate their desire to be involved in the project as a volunteer.
