plan that focuses on building on our strengths, addressing

our needs, and capitalizing on opportunities for St. Peter

education.

To achieve this, all members of the St. Peter community are

invited to attend one of the focus group sessions being held

person is an invaluable source of information, participation

from many members of the community is vital. Your

roadmap for attaining our best in Catholic Education for the

next five years and beyond for both our St. Peter School

receives greater consolations from Jesus than the

world with all its joys and pleasures is capable of giving. Jesus in

the Blessed Sacrament is the fountainhead of all good." St.

Alphonsus Liguori

In our Lenten desert journey we can become parched with thirst

and perhaps lose heart, but then we may remember Who is the

source of living waters. Come, spend some time in the presence

of the One Who can fulfill all your needs...to overflowing

Washington Park Cemetery.

Washington Park Cemetery is overgrown with brush and debris

scattered across the property. A group of our Boy Scouts from

Troop 323 spent several hours cleaning up the cemetery last

month. They soon realized it would be a great opportunity for

our entire parish to work together to help make a difference for

our neighbors.

If you are considering doing service as part of your Lent please

consider joining the Boy Scouts:

Washington Park Cemetery Clean-up Project

Saturday April 16, 2011, 8 am – 4 pm

Together St. Peter Parish can make a difference.

ROOM AT THE INN PROGRAM NEED - CAN YOU HELP OUT?

When our Room at the Inn guests come to spend the night in our

cafeteria on the third Friday of the month, one male and one

female St. Peter parishioners spend the night also. We are there

to help the guests feel at home and know someone is there if there

is a question or concern. The "overnight sleeper" volunteers

arrive around 8:30pm and leave around 7:30 or 8:00am. Your

level of commitment is up to you. If you could help out just one

or two nights a year, that would be great! Each overnighter must

take steps to become in compliance with the Protecting God's

Children requirements before helping out in this way. Please call

Larry (821-7929), Jim (965-1939), Sherry (966-8023), or Joan

(821-2935) if you have questions or would like to sign up.

Thank you for considering helping out in this way.
