Mass offerings open us to God ́s mercy, an expression of charity to which we provide our specific intentions. The Eucharist is the heart of our faith and each Mass is said for both the living and the dead, uniting our donors closely with the life of the Church. There is no more powerful prayerful petition than having a Mass said for an intention worthy in the eyes of God. As St. John Paul II has written: “In the celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice, the Church prays that God, the Father of Mercies, will grant his children the fullness of the Holy Spirit so that they may become one body and one spirit in Christ." Mass Intentions are a way to pray for the loved one. A Mass Stipend of $10 is suggested when requesting a Mass for a loved one. If there is no specific date requested, a Mass Intention can be put in the collection basket with the person’s name and who requested it. For a specific date, call or stop at the Parish office.

Scams - Spams - Spoofing
Phishing - Ransomware
Do not reply to an email from the Transfiguration of the Lord Church that is requesting money, gift cards, or financial information. We will not ask for this in an email. Several Parishioners have received a request from Father Tony or Father Conrad asking to send a gift card to a friend for him as he was unable to do so at the me. This is a scam do not do this!
People are so busy trying to imitate a church to get money for themselves. It is sad that in our world we can not trust people.
If you receive an email requesting money, gift cards or financial information from anyone, pick up the phone and call that person to verify it is legitimate. DO NOT REPLY TO THE EMAIL.
Here are some definitions related to scams:
• Spoofing is the creation of an email message with a misleading sender address, with the intention of leading the recipient to open, and possibly take ac on, based on the contents of the message.
• Phishing is an email that falsely claims to be a legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information.
• Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents you from using your computer or accessing certain files unless you pay a ransom.
• Spam is unsolicited bulk email, the electronic equivalent of junk mail that comes to your inbox
Please be on the look-out for these types of email scams. They are becoming more and more prevalent. Make sure your network is secured and data is backed up.

The money raised at the Mission Fair will go to the Missionary Childhood Association (MCA). MCA is in 110 countries and helps make Jesus known to children all over the world.
The money we raise will go towards the building of schools, health and nutrition programs, medications, school fees, and teaching and learning resources. The MCA is dedicated to the idea of “children helping children.”
This is a great night for the entire family. Hope to see you there.
Ms. Karen Walter
Religious Education Director
On behalf of the staff and students at St. Peter School, we cordially invite you to celebrate the many blessings and benefits of choosing a faith-based education as we celebrate Catholic Schools Week.
We have many fun and exciting activities planned for the entire week and we would love to have you join us. We will kick-off the week with a school Open House immediately following the 10:30 am Mass. There will be St. Peter School apparel sales, prizes, and information available.
The Knights of Columbus will be providing a Pancake and Sausage Breakfast at the Open House and the Catholic Ladies of Columbia will also be holding a bake sale.
We invite parents, parishioners, and community members to stop by and see what Catholic education is all about. The rest of the week is a celebration of different aspects of Catholic education as we focus on community, students, nation, vocations, faculty, staff, and volunteers.
St. Peter School has also teamed with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help raise money for blood cancer research. To help aid the cause, we will be having a “Pie in the Pucker” contest where students can donate their loose change to the person they would like to see get a “pie in the pucker”. The “lucky” winner of the contest will be announced on Friday where they will receive their “award”. You can also donate through the link found on our school website. Please help us make a difference and be a shining example of Catholic education by giving back to our community.
For more information about the activities planned for Catholic Schools Week, please contact us or visit the website and Facebook page for further details.
For all of us here at St. Peter School, we want to again sincerely thank you for your trust and support of our mission. May God continue to shine His blessings on our school family and community.

Orders are still being taken for memorial bricks in honor of a loved one. There are two sizes of bricks available: 4” X 8” or 8” X 8”. 3 or 6 lines of texts with 20 characters per line are available depending on the size of brick you purchase.

We have had several people ask about becoming a parish or school volunteer. And some of you have indicated you do not want to take the Virtus class on-line but would prefer taking a class in person. If we get enough interested people the diocese will conduct the class at our location. The class takes about 2 hours and you need only to bring a pen. If you are interested please call the parish office at 419- 294-1268. The diocese would like at least 20 people in the class and would like to advertise it and get individuals from surrounding parishes to attend as well.
