Dear parishioners and friends in Christ,
Apologies to those who did not receive a bulletin this past Sunday. Apparently one box of unopened bulletins was covered over by donations of food for the Outreach/Social Ministry pantry. For this reason we reprinted Bishop Barres’ very important letter concerning the Child Victims Act that went into effect this past Wednesday.
Speaking of the “Bulletin”, please take one home with you as you leave Mass. Many parish programs, activities, and announcements appear each week. This traditional means of parish communication is also complemented by our website. Keep up with what’s going on by referring to both. And please remember to patronize our advertisers. Tell them you saw their advertisement in our bulletin. You might also consider advertising your own business or professional services for your fellow parishioners to consult. St. Peter’s receives a share of advertising revenue as well as the printed bulletin itself.
This past week I met with the Parish Party Committee as they have now begun preparations for this November’s annual celebration. Details will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead. My thanks to all who volunteer to plan and facilitate this important fundraiser for our Parish.
Anticipation is building for the return of our young parishioners to St. Peter’s Elementary School and to our School of Religious Education and Family Faith Formation. We are making additional safety and security improvements to all of our buildings used by all the children of our Parish. Registration for both our Parochial School and Religious Education Program continue. Please consult this bulletin for enrollment information and registration.
Thank you for your warm welcome this weekend to our guest missionary homilist, Father Filipe Badilio, and for your generous financial support for the foreign missions. It’s always enlightening to learn of the important work of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith and of our role as missionary disciples.
God bless you and have a great week!
