St Walter Church

Joyful Disciple

Why am I a follower of Jesus?

As a cradle Catholic I learned much about His life and all He gave to us.  I am a follower of Jesus because He has always been there for me whenever I needed His comfort.

How do I follow Him?

I follow Him by daily prayer and by trying to set a good example for my family.  I have been a minister of care for many years which has brought me much joy.  I try to find ways to share my faith with others.  Being a part of SAM has been rewarding and has offered many opportunities for service to the community.




Live Streaming Now Available at St. Walter!

What is live streaming anyway?  Streaming is a technology used to deliver live video and audio over the internet to computers and mobile devices.   Many organizations today are using live streaming to promote events, live interviews or to share experiences on social media.   Now St. Walter is bringing live streaming of Masses and special events to you and your loved ones when attending Mass is not an option.

These events are available via the St. Walter Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/saintwalterchurch/ or on this Website at: https://www.stwalterchurch.com/communications/videostreaming.   

Looking for volunteers! 

If you are interested in learning about Live Streaming and want to help us operating this state-of-the-art equipment, please contact Dick Day at day@stwalterchurch.com   All that is needed is the knowledge of how the Mass proceeds and a desire to learn the operation of the equipment, which is relatively simple.  Service hours are available for this type of activity.  Please consider taking the time to help out.

Rosary During May at St. Walter

During the month of May, we will pray the Rosary nightly at 6:30 PM in the Circle Drive. On Monday evenings (May 7, 14, 21, & 28) we will include a candlelight procession around the campus.

The message of Mary at Fatima is the same today as it was then:

  • Pray.
  • Pray the rosary every day
  • Pray for peace.  

More than ever we need peace in our hearts, our families and our world.  We still need to pray the rosary. We have brochures at the Faith Network Desk to help guide you with a list of the mysteries.

Please come and join us for the first Candlelight Procession at 6:30 PM in the Circle Drive on Monday, May 7th, the Feast of the Holy Rosary. 

Bring the children, and teach them the story of Fatima. Strollers are welcome. We need the children to lead us, carrying the banners and a teenager to carry the cross. 

In case of cold or rainy weather, we meet in the Narthex to pray.
