Women of STP Luncheon Sunday, Sept. 22

All women of the parish are invited to join the Women of STP after the 11 a.m. Mass for a Taco Salad Bar luncheon. After lunch, we will show you how easy it is to make the beautiful, hand-embroidered Baptismal bibs that are given to our newest members. We will also be collecting personal feminine hygiene items for St. Peter’s Social Services. Please join us for an enjoyable afternoon of fellowship!

STP School Boosterthon Kicks Off

Once again, St. Peter’s School is hosting a two week boosterthon to raise funds for our STEAM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), and to help kids learn about fitness, leadership, and character. Students will ask family and friends to sponsor them in St. Peter’s Glow Run to be held next Thursday, Sept. 12, right here at St. Peter’s. The boosterthon team will also work daily with students on problem solving and character building exercises. If you are interested in donating, contact your favorite STP student or click here.

Get Involved in Liturgies As a Sacristan

St. Peter’s is currently looking for Sacristans for our weekend Masses. Sacristans are responsible for the preparation and care of liturgical vessels, arriving 20 minutes before Mass and staying for a few minutes after. If you are interested in helping with this important ministry, please contact Director of Liturgy, Michael Mills at mmills@stpeterskc.org. Thank You!

Volunteers Needed for Children’s Liturgy of the Word

We are seeking adult and high-school aged volunteers to assist with our Children’s Liturgy of the Word ministry, offered during the school year at the Sunday 9 a.m. Mass for children ages 4 – 2nd grade.  After the opening prayer, the children are accompanied to the church basement, where they learn about the Gospel through fun activities. They return to the Mass prior to the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Preparation for the lesson requires a few minutes perusing the  teacher’s guide and weekly activity book. Please email Megan Scheiderer at megan.scheiderer@huschblackwell.com. Volunteers must complete Protecting God’s Children training.
