ST. PETER SCHOOL NEWS:
Dear St. Peter Family,
My wife Anne and I wish to express our deepest appreciation for
your constant prayers and support with the passing of our son
David. Your prayer has provided a beautiful amount of grace
from Our Lord. We are grateful to be a part of this community.
“Partners in Progress” – Long Range Education Plan
I am pleased to tell you that the writing of our Long Range
Education Plan is under way. Each goal will have specific action
items, steps, strategies and timelines for implementing and
achieving the goal. The writing process will take a few more
months with a target completion in early second semester.
Based on all the focus group feedback last spring, the School
Board, PSR and the day school have established five major goals
for our plan. They are:
Catholicity: To instill appreciation, understanding and
commitment to our Catholic faith and service to others through
Community: To be a welcoming and inclusive community that
embraces others through a distinguished "Culture of Kindness".
Academics: To develop strong, innovative teachers, practices and
resources to best educate primary and middle school students
with emphasis on excellence in mathematics and science.
Communication: To communicate openly and effectively with
Technology: To improve the understanding and use of
technology in diverse curricular areas for all students and
In the next several weeks I will update you on the progress of the
plan, answer on-going questions and show you how we have
already begun to make significant progress. Please continue to
pray for all of us as we work to be all the Lord has called us to be.

council will sponsor our third annual Veterans Day
Commemoration and reception. We would like to honor any
veteran who would like to join us for that day. (Please keep in

need to have served in a war to be a veteran).

and could join our celebration, please forward that person‟s name
and address so that we can extend a personal invitation.
We will begin with 8:30AM Mass (changed from 8:15AM) on

the veterans in the cafeteria, followed by an assembly in the gym.

7:00PM and say the rosary for a special intention. All you need
to bring is a rosary and your family. There is no need to worry

the overall meaningful prayer our families can offer.

The Rest of Us: Dispatchers from the Mother
Ship by Jacquelyn Mitchard
A collection of short columns from a mother of 5 and a widow
who proclaims that she and her audience are all those women who
were not both a calculus prodigy and cheerleader but “the rest of
us”. Some of her reflections are funny, some aim for the jugular,
and some are genuinely moving.

region and Catholicism written by the recently deceased Father

6TH GRADERS AT ST. PETER ROCK!
Thank you to all of the 6th graders at St. Peter school for
collecting peanut butter for Fr. Gary’s food pantry. You have
helped feed other children just like you. Sts. Teresa & Bridget
food pantry needs all the food we can share with them.
FR. GARY'S FOOD PANTRY
For those of you who are not aware of why and how this food
pantry collection got started please read below:
After visiting with Fr. Gary Meier, former associate at St. Peter,
now pastor of Sts. Teresa & Bridget (located on Grand & N.
Market, St. Louis City), he explained how his parish and
community are in great need. They have a food pantry that serves
their area, open one day a week for 3 hours. Even though another
county parish supplies canned goods once a month, the high
demand keeps their shelves bare. They have had to reduce what
they're able to give to those who come for help to a bag that holds
just enough food for 2 meals.
THIS IS WHERE WE COME IN. By collecting canned goods
MONTHLY we can help make other peoples' lives better and
respond to Jesus' call to feed Him when He is hungry.
Donations are delivered on the 3rd Monday of every month.
Please bring canned food in plastic bags about 4 days prior to
the monthly delivery date (3rd Monday each month) to our
home, placing it on the front porch. A list of items needed
and delivery dates is located in The Gathering Area in the
back of church.
DROP OFF LOCATION ~
Candy and John Behl, 319 East Adams, Kirkwood (block and a
half east of the YMCA). Please donate cans that are no larger
than 30 ounces, anything larger is difficult to carry for all of us.
Thank you for your support and generosity.

shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your mind. "In the
bible it also says, "Put the Lord first in your life and
all the rest will be added unto you."

foster care. During the foster care
process there is a monthly
maintenance payment per child. Daycare is paid for by the state
for working parents and children are on Medicaid for their health
insurance. After an adoption is finalized, the adoptive parents
continue to receive a monthly maintenance payment, daycare
assistance, for health insurance children can stay on Medicaid,
and the state pays for all your legal fees for the adoption

CHRISTMAS IN JULY/THANK YOU
The woman from New Covenant Ministry, Denna, who we helped
in July, delivered twin boys.
"To my friends who have really stepped up to help me and my
family. I cannot show or express myself enough to say how much
I appreciate and thank you for caring enough for me and my
children through these difficult times of our life."
Denna & family
She received many generous cash donations, clothing, cribs,
miscellaneous baby items, furniture and a twin bed for her
daughter. One of the twins had to have a shunt installed and
Denna is unable to work, so the challenges continue so she can
still use our prayers. The New Covenant Ministry is truly grateful
to the people of St Peter for helping once again during these
challenging financial times.
Thank you so very much for your kindness.
The Giving Tree Ministry
The Welcoming Committee would
like to announce the “New
Arrivals to our Parish Family” for
September 2011. Let us remember
them in our prayers and aid them in catching that great St. Peter
Spirit we all know and love.
