Dynamic Parish At Home Activity: The Sunday Experience

For many weeks you experienced Mass from home, and now many of you are venturing back to church. This week, whether you’re still watching on video, or are back in church for live Mass, we’d like to invite you to enrich your Sunday experience with the Dynamic Parish “At-Home Activity”. Visit SundayExperience.us and download the Sunday Plan template that corresponds with your situation, either celebrating Mass at home or in church. On the Sunday Plan, you’ll see three different categories: Preparation (before Mass), Participation (during Mass), and Reflection (after Mass). Each of the three categories will have a few suggestions of things to do during that period of time, to make your entire Sunday experience more powerful. Read through the suggestions and select one from each category to commit to. Give it a try and see what surprising things can happen if you truly make yourself available to God.

Order School Supplies for 2020-21

Once again, our PTA is working with Supply Solutions KC to offer parents an opportunity to purchase supplies online (we will send school supply lists soon for those who prefer to purchase independently) – these supplies will be delivered directly to St. Peter’s School in August and ready for your children in their respective homerooms. To view the options, click here.
Please note the following:
  • Headphones are an optional purchase.
  • Families will still need to purchase backpack and St. Peter’s pencil bag (for 1st-8th graders; many students are able to reuse from the previous year – these will be available at Packet Day in August).
  • Paint shirts for art are NOT included in pre-packaged supplies.
  • Kleenex/Tissues, Clorox Wipes, hand sanitizer, and paper towels will need to be purchased separately this year due to high demand and COVID-19 shortages. We encourage you to purchase these supplies as you find them available.
  • The deadline to order is June 30.

Next Blood Drive Wednesday, May 20

St. Peter’s next blood drive is Wednesday, May 20, 12-6 p.m. in the gym. Blood drives were suspended for some time so the need for donations is great. All donors are asked to wear masks to their appointment. Temperatures will be checked at the door and social distancing protocols will remain in place. We cannot accept walk-ins at this time; donors, please register here.

Tomorrow’s Priest Collection

The Diocese of KCSJ has 24 seminarians, and the cost of seminary education is among its largest expenses. You can help by giving to the Tomorrow’s Priest Fund. Normally, we would take up a second collection at Mass but this year you will receive a mailing from the Diocese, asking for your support. Any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated. Donations can be submitted online here.

Save the Date for Blood Drive

Please save the date for St. Peter’s next blood drive on Wednesday, May 20. The drive is tentatively scheduled to take place in the gym; that will give us plenty of space for appropriate socially distancing. We will be complying with all state and local orders regarding public gatherings and will have enhanced hygiene practices in place. We cannot accept walk-ins at this time; donors will have to register. Watch next week for details and a link to sign up.
