    Happy Valentine’s Day! Love is in the air! We had a fun time this Valentine’s Day giving each patron a nice warm Snuggie blanket and book light.

Give Us This Day – Testimonial

Give us this day The Lord’s Prayer continues with the words “our daily bread”. St. Peter’s Kitchen offers our daily bread and more.

A Quiet Guest

One of our guests was badly beaten this week. It was hard to look at “John’s” face as he was hit around his eyes and forehead. His eyes and under his eyes were completely hemorrhaged and the pupils of his eyes were so bright blue. It was a difficult contrast to see. He has been coming Read More
