Due to inclement weather, St. Peter’s and all Southwest POD schools are closed today.
Due to a power outage, school is canceled for tomorrow, January 14.
We still need 3-5 people to round out our 5th Wednesday crew at One City Cafe at the Bishop Sullivan Center, 3936 Troost Ave. on January 30. You will serve dinner from 4:30-6:30. This is a great opportunity for families, teens, and small groups to spend time together in the service of others. Please contact parish secretary Mary Pfeifer if interested. (816) 363-2320.

This year, the candles at our Advent Penance Service will be lit by a very special flame, the Peace Light from Bethlehem. For the past 32 years, a Girl Guide or Boy Scout from Austria has collected a flame from the Grotto of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where Our Lord was born. With the help of Austrian Broadcasting, Austrian Airlines, and the International Catholic Conference on Scouting, that flame is sent all around the world as a symbol of the peace Christ offers us. This year, Pladfinder (Boy Scout) Niklas Lehner of Vorchdorf, Austria, collected the flame from the Grotto on November 28. It arrived in New York on December 1 and has been spreading westward ever since.
You will have an opportunity to bring this Peace Light from Bethlehem home with you. Candles in glass will be available for a free-will offering ($3.00 is suggested), immediately before and immediately after the service. We hope to see you on Sunday!

All women of the parish are invited to attend the Women of St. Peter’s Annual Christmas Brunch on December 16, 2018. We will gather in the church basement following the 9:00 Mass. Together we will make holiday floral arrangements and pack homemade Christmas cookies to deliver to our homebound members. We will also be collecting donations of toilet tissue for St. Peter’s Social Services. If you have never attended one of our events, this is the perfect opportunity. We look forward to celebrating with you. If you would like to bring a food item for the brunch, sign up at http://ow.ly/tJHx50jRvlI
