You may also drop a photo off at Sunday Mass prior to that day, or at the social services entrance to the Legacy Center on a Thursday or Friday. 11-2. If possible please call or email Mark Hague to let him know you are coming. 816-877-0300 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We will display the photos throughout the month of November unless you prefer to take yours back sooner.
Beginning Thursday, October 29, St. Peter’s will celebrate Evening Prayer from 6-6:20 p.m. every Thursday, with adoration from 6-7 p.m. All are invited. Evening prayer is a part of the Liturgy of the Hours, a series of prayers prayed throughout the day, by the church around the world. We will use the Universalis website which has all of the texts for free in your browser. Universalis also sells an app through which you can access the entire breviary offline with expanded interactive features and prayers. Printed breviaries can be purchased from church supply store I. Donnelly but are not required. Evening Prayer and Holy Hour will also be live-streamed on the STP YouTube channel for those who would like to pray from home.
St. Peter’s is looking for Sacristans for all Masses! Sacristans are volunteers who assist with setting up and cleaning the sacred vessels used at each Mass. Tasks are very simple and only take an extra 10 minutes before and after Mass. This could be a great activity for parents to do with children to learn about the vessels used at Mass. Please contact Director of Liturgy Michael Mills for signup and training.
The PTA Auction next March will be our 25th annual, and we are starting the silver anniversary celebration now with spirit wear! Please place orders through this link. All orders must be placed by Friday October 23. (Items are approved for students to wear on noted “spirit days.”
