During Lent we will again be collecting for CRS (Catholic Relief Services) Rice Bowls. Envelopes will be handed out and the
students will be asked to bring in their offering each week. Please visit www.crsricebowl.org to learn more about
the people and communities we support through our Lenten gifts to CRS Rice Bowl. They have a web page specifically for
families with activities that will help your family grow in our Catholic Faith this Lenten season. Please check it out.
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.
Lifetime of Giving
Right before Christmas break, we received a letter from Amy Tucker. She stated, “I am writing to you to make a donation in honor of my parents, Ann and Henry Bils. This year they asked that we not purchase gifts for them since God has already provided for all their needs. (We) would like to acknowledge their great dedication to the church, your school and our family with this donation... Please use this donation for (the needs) you deem appropriate.”
How wonderful to honor our parishioners who have, through the years, supported the church and school. Thank you, Ann and Henry, for a lifetime of giving!
We accept Kasey Mae Haller and Jeremy Duncan into the Order of Catechumen as they prepare to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. We also welcome Brenda Lee Bosworth and Lynn Yeater as they prepare to receive the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. As a welcoming faith community we promise our prayers as these brothers and sisters continue their journey of faith with us.
