According to event organizers, Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church Proto-Cathedral’s Mass on the Mississippi will be bigger and better than that of previous years. The Liberty Bank Alton Amphitheater along the Mississippi will once again be the venue for Holy Mass at 10 a.m. June 28. This marks the feast day of Ss. Peter and Paul, the patron saints of the church. The celebration will be filled with beautiful music provided by the church and school choirs, sisters from the order of St. Francis of the Martyr St. George, as well as anyone else interested in participating.
There will be a community picnic after the Mass, so bring your food, non-alcoholic drinks, blankets and chairs to enjoy some fellowship. Musical entertainment will also be provided by Riverbender Truck Sound System during the picnic. The God Squad will also be providing lunch after the Mass for which a free will offering will be taken.
Faculty and staff will be on hand to answer any questions after Mass about our school and our parish. Our school has been teaching Alton children since 1908. We offer Extended Day Care before and after school and teach grades pre-kindergarten through eighth.
