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

kindness.

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

all stakeholders.

Technology: To improve the understanding and use of

technology in diverse curricular areas for all students and

teachers.

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.

Kind regards,

John Freitag, Principal

ATTENTION ALL VETERANS

On Friday, November 11, 2011, St. Peter School and the Student

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

mind that “veteran” means anyone who has served. One does not

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

If you are a veteran, or if you know of someone who is 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

November 11th. After Mass, there will be a short reception for

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

Any veteran is welcome along with a guest. Please contact

Nancy Muller at St. Peter Catholic School (214-821-0460) by

October 30th so a formal invitation can be sent.

Mass time will be moved from 8:15AM to 8:30AM

on November 11th only!

ST. PETER YOUNG FAMILIES GROUP

Are you a parent with young children who'd like to meet more of

your peers? The St. Peter Young Families Group offers social,

spiritual and service activities for families with children under

school age. Visit www.stpeteryoungfamilies.com or e-mail

stpeteryoungfamilies@gmail.com to be added to our e-mail

distribution list for notification of upcoming events.

Our next monthly rosary is

Monday, October 24th

The Parish Library In

Ursuline Hall

Have you ever wanted to say

the rosary as a family but just thought your kids were too little or

would not pay attention? Maybe you don't even remember how

to say the rosary but might if you were reminded. The Young

Families group at St. Peter Parish has decided to make saying the

rosary a true family event! We will meet in the Parish Library

in Ursuline Hall the 4th Monday of each month from 6:30-

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

that your kids might be loud or not pay attention, all will add to

the overall meaningful prayer our families can offer.

HELLO TO ALL THE GARDENERS

IN ST. PETER PARISH!

Please join us on Saturday, November 5th, at

9:00AM to help clean up the gardens at the

parish. Bring your favorite garden clean-up

tools and meet on the front steps of the church.

We will visit a bit then get to work. It won‟t take long with all of

you helping. There might be food when we are finished. What if

St. Peter Parish had a dedicated group of gardeners who took care

of our gardens regularly? Could we start a Garden Ministry?

(Rain date: November 19th). Call Ellen Nolte, 698-2142, for

more information.

Googling GOD: the religious landscape of

people in their 20s and 30s by Mike Hayes

Who are these young adults? Generation X and the Millennials?

This book offers an in-depth profile of a sampling and a way

of understanding these men and women who are the now and

future of the Catholic Church.

Section M

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.

Section H

The St. Louis German Catholics by William Barnaby

Faherty, SJ

One of more than 40 books about the history of the St. Louis

region and Catholicism written by the recently deceased Father

Faherty. In this book he traces the settlement, growth and impact

of one of St. Louis‟s most enduring communities.

Section C

Kateri: Native American Saint by Giowanna Paponetti

The reader enters the world of the 17 th Century Native American

“The Lily of the Mohawks”. The book is beautifully illustrated

with 21 full-color images from an altar screen that Giovanna was

commissioned in 2005 to paint for the Church of St. John the

Baptist at Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo in New Mexico, the oldest

Parish in the United States.

Section F

ST. PETER AND PAUL SOUP KITCHEN

The volunteers at St. Peter and Paul in Soulard served 130

hungry guests on October 3. 13 servers, 15 cooks and 14 who

provided side items made the meal happen. Special thanks to

Great Harvest Bakery for the donation of dinner rolls used for

the meal.

We will be collecting new or gently used blankets for the

homeless men's shelter for November 3. If you have any to

donate, please drop them off on the front porch of 311 Weston

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.

GOOD JOB!!

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.

Candy and John Behl....965-3390

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

Adoration means putting God first in our lives. In

today's Gospel (Mt 22:34-40) Jesus says, "You

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."

Committing to a weekly Holy Hour can feel like a sacrifice at

times, but God is never outdone in generosity!

The following Holy Hours are in need of an adorer:

Monday 7:00PM

Thursday 3:00PM and 6:00PM

Friday 6:00AM and Noon

The following hours are in need of a partner:

Monday 8:00AM, 3:00PM & 6:00PM

Tuesday 7:00AM, 2:00PM, 4:00PM & 7:00PM

Wednesday 9:00PM

Thursday 11:00AM and 8:00PM

Friday 6:00PM

Please call Kathy Fotouhi, 821-4347.

Q: What does it cost to adopt

thru foster care?

A: It is free to adopt through

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

finalization.

TREASURE REPORT AT-A-GLANCE

“Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what

belongs to God.” Matthew 22:21

Its reality, everything belongs to God. We would have nothing if

God had not given us the skills, talents and opportunities to

accomplish what we accomplish. Therefore, we have an

obligation to return a portion of our gifts to God, for all gifts

come from Him and belong to Him.

CHRISTMAS IN JULY/THANK YOU

The woman from New Covenant Ministry, Denna, who we helped

in July, delivered twin boys.

She wrote:

"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."

Sincerely,

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.

Please welcome:
