Sign Up For St. Peter’s T-Ball

St. Peter’s Co-Ed T-Ball registration is underway for St. Peter and St. Therese Little Flower parishioners and school families who will be entering Pre-K (4 year old class) or Kindergarten in the Fall of 2019. Registration forms must be returned by Friday, April 26th for uniform orders. We hope you will join us for the fun which begins Saturday, May 11, and runs through June 15. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity for peers and parents to meet new and old St. Peter’s friends before the start of the school year! We need parent volunteers to help with coaching and weekly set up too. Please indicate on your form if you can help. Contact Emily or Marty Seaton at 573-489-2058 or eseaton123@yahoo.com for registration forms or with any questions. We are looking forward to another great St. Peter’s T-ball season!

Upcoming Changes to Sanctuary

You may notice a few changes in the Church sanctuary over the next few weeks. Our beautiful tabernacle is being moved to a new location, to a platform directly behind the altar, and the statue of the Blessed Mother, which previously resided in the old baptistery to the east of the altar, will be moved to the alcove on the west side of the altar, where the tabernacle is currently located. The ambo will also be removed briefly for refurbishing. This marks a bit of a return to the past for St. Peter’s. When the Church was built, the tabernacle was placed behind the altar and a statue of Mary stood in the west alcove, designated then as “The Lady Chapel.” We hope you agree these changes will give our sacred tabernacle a place of prominence and put the body of Christ at the center of all we do.
