It’s time again for the social distancing version of Donut Sunday! We will be handing out bags of carefully packaged donuts in the west portico of the church after Sunday Masses on July 19 (approximate times 9:45-10:15 and 11:45-12:15).
Can you help us restock the food pantry? We are having another curbside donation drop-off on the following days: Tuesday, July 14 and Tuesday, July 21, 1-4 p.m. Just pull up to the curb near the social services entrance to the Legacy Center, and put your donation in the drop-off bins. Items that are in low supply include:
Canned Ham or Spam
Canned or jarred fruits (Please no pineapple, we have plenty)
Jello and Pudding packs and mix
Corn Muffin Mix
Jelly and Jams
Deodorant (Men’s and Women’s)
We are organizing small groups of 5-10 people to discuss the book Rediscover Jesus, similar to our Lenten book discussion groups. Please submit this online form if you would like to be part of a weekly discussion group, beginning mid July. Form your own group, or we will find one for you. See sign-up for details.
Who am I? Who is God? What am I here for? What will my contribution be? We discover the answers to these questions by encountering Jesus. Rediscover Jesus–join our summer email series and receive a short daily video that will inspire your journey. Learn more and sign up here.

In times of crisis, it can be helpful to picture a future that is bigger, better and brighter. Now is a great time to dream – for our community, our family, our Church, our parish, and ourselves. As part of our Dynamic Parish initiative, we recommend everyone watch the virtual event which is available [in English and Spanish] until July 15 at DynamicDreams.us, a follow-up to last fall’s dream event.
Throughout history, God has used men and women to spark lasting change in the world, in both big and small ways. When God is choosing who to send out on a mission, he isn’t looking at our qualifications. He is looking for just one thing. What is it? This week, we invite you to visit TheOneThing.us to see how you can collaborate with God to do great things.
Bishop Johnston recently announced new clergy assignments, effective July 1. We will be saying farewell to Father Bill Fox, who has been appointed Parochial Vicar of Church of the Good Shepherd, Smithville, and Church of the Annunciation, Kearney, and Spiritual Director of the English speaking Cursillo movement. St. Peter’s will be getting a new associate pastor in the late summer or early fall. See the complete list of clergy assignments here. We wish Fr. Bill well as his path carries him on to a new assignment. We cannot have a going away party for him as we would like, but you can drop a card or note off at the parish office for him. Please put it in the mail slot by the Legacy Center back door, at the south end of the Legacy parking lot. Fr. Bill will be celebrating his last Masses at St. Peter’s on the weekend of June 27-28–we hope you will join us!
Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Social Services program over the past several months. Your generous support is making a difference for people in need. Another curbside food drive will be held later in the summer. Until then, if you have items you wish to donate to the food pantry, you can email or call Mark Hague (816-877-0300) to arrange a drop-off. Drop-offs are scheduled on Thursdays from 11:00 to 2:00. Donations of gift cards or cash/check can be delivered at any time by dropping an envelope in the mail slot at the back door of the Legacy Center, at the southwest corner of the building. Many thanks again for your giving spirit!
