Welcome to The Senior Residence at St. Peter the Apostle!

2022 Annual Appeal

Dear Friends,


Happy Holidays!


The holiday season is a time of reflection. We find ourselves grateful for the many small moments and significant occasions as we reflect over the past year. We are filled with gratitude along with feelings of how we are truly blessed. I am grateful to have the privilege and honor to serve our seniors with compassion, to know them, to listen to their stories, listen to their woes, empathize with their pain, and witness their joy. Through the strength of our community and valued partners, the generous financial and emotional support we have received enables us to continue our important mission of providing an affordable and caring environment for seniors to live independently.


As the new year approaches, I want to extend my heart-felt thanks and appreciation for your support, volunteer hours, and prayers which have contributed to another successful year. Your contributions facilitated the acquisition of much needed new appliances and additional extraordinary celebratory events. Our first Oyster & Wine Fundraising Event was an amazing night filled with joy and hope! The event evidenced how our special community has greatly impacted so many people’s lives. I look forward to 2023 with enthusiasm and excitement as we celebrate our 10th Year Anniversary!


With partners like you, we can continue to serve our seniors and provide compassionate care, a safe environment, quality services, and necessary programs to enrich their lives. While we reflect on a blessed year, I am reminded of the challenges we face ahead of us. For our 2022 Annual Appeal, we ask you for your support to continue building a healthy and strong community. Your thoughtful contribution can be made by using the enclosed envelope or online at www.stpetersresidence.org/donate/ and will be gratefully received and deeply appreciated. On behalf of the Senior Residence, we wish you all the best this season and always.


Thank you for your support,

Gina Principato
Executive Director

“I love that they are next door to the school, seeing the kids and the seniors interact daily makes the Senior Residence a unique place to live, they are part of a neighborhood, I like that”.
– Carol Bartlett
