Father David Peck | St. John Neumann

Submitted by: Terry Apple

Daily and Sunday masses live streamed on Facebook in addition to daily prayers twice a day. Outdoor Communion services and Reconciliations. Outdoor prayer areas. Bikes around our parish boundaries, pausing for prayer.

Fr. Peck is and has been available 24/7 for calls not only within the parish community but whenever there is a need for a priest in neighboring areas regardless of church affiliation. His commitment strengthens our faith daily as we are all called to follow the Corporal Works of Mercy.

Fr. Peck serves as the police/fire department chaplain. He assists on calls for water rescue on the Fox River, police requests for assistance on drug related issues and domestic violence. Currently those calls resulting from mental health issues due to the pandemic.

Father's participation on city organizations, i.e. Chamber of Commerce and Rotary, show a commitment to the community at large.
