CHAD & CHRISTINA BAKER
for doing so much for the St. Peter School CYO Program! We appreciate all you have done over the years. You have been a great example to our parish/school children.
After two years the Baker Family is looking for someone who can take over the Athletic Director role for the St. Peter CYO
Program. With children in both Middle School and at St. Peter’s next year they would like to have more time to follow
both their children’s activities.
Chad and Christina are willing to begin the “transition” this coming school year by working with the new family through
the volleyball and basketball seasons so there will be plenty of opportunity for the new AD to learn everything they need
to know to take over. If you are interested in serving in this role on your own or
by partnering with another family, please call or text Chad at 614-309-4104 or Christina at 614-306-9286.

SPS Challenge Grant
I am always amazed at people’s generosity. In response to a recent mailing to our out-of-town alumni in which we updated them on the current happenings at St. Peter School, I received a phone call from a former student, Dave Logsdon, who wanted to speak further about how best to help our school. In our conversation, he decided to set up a “challenge grant” in memory of his mother, Carol C. Logsdon and in honor of his father, Maury Logsdon. The Logsdon Family Foundation will match up to $10,000 in support for our school, such as: school library, audio-visual equipment, technology, teaching and learning resources, and the gift that keeps on giving, the School Endowment Fund. If you would like to take part in this challenge, please mark your donation: "SPS Challenge Grant".
We thank Maury Logsdon and his family for supporting our efforts here at St. Peter School. Each gift is a blessing to our students, families and staff.
We have received another generous donation to the St. Peter School Challenge Grant, for a total of $6,425. The Logsdon Family Foundation matches up to $10,000. Thank you all for your generous support of our great school!
We are looking for any donated items for our Silent Auction! We have found that homemade wood projects are very popular as well as assorted gift baskets and ticket packages. We appreciate your help with our festival. Please contact Nicole Frey at 419-722-5728.
On the Saturday of the Parish Festival, July 28th 2018, the 4:30 pm Saturday Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary Chapel, Kirby.

ARE YOU GOING ON VACATION? Many of our parish families are planning to get away for some summer fun and relaxation in the next few months. We pray that your vacation time will be safe and a source of many happy memories. However, please don’t take your parish offering with you. Each summer our parish office struggles to juggle the bills as Sunday offerings decrease significantly. If you find that you tend to forget your envelope more often during the less structured weeks of summer, please consider our electronic giving program. It’s simple! It’s safe! And it keeps God at the top of your giving list even when you are away!
St. Peter Catholic School in Upper Sandusky is looking for energetic, dependable candidates to join our family in the following position: extended day monitor (2:30-4:30). Contact Mary Alice Harbour at email@example.com or call 419-294-1395 if you are interested in discussing the possibilities.
