Youth   We are asking all of our young people grades 7th through 12th, with the encouragement of their

Night     parents, to make every effort to join us for a special presentation on the evils of drugs etc… On Wednesday April 21st at 5:30pm. We will be ever so grateful to have Mike Calendar with us to give a presentation on this topic. We will serve hamburgers and hot dogs.


Easter Season The best way to say Alleluia during the Easter Season is to join us for daily Mass when possible.


RIP Your prayers are requested for the happy repose of the soul of Joyce Janiszewski who was laid to rest this Saturday April 17th. May God Bless her husband Leonard and family and May God give her eternal rest.


Alcoholics Anonymous The members of Alcoholics Anonymous are again searching for a place to meet. In the desire to be good neighbors they will use the traditionally known as the AA Room Monday and Saturday nights at 7:30pm. We have emphasized no smoking in the interest of safety from a fire.   


Congratulations We congratulate Don Tartt Jr., who’s science project came first, in the state Science Fair for all private schools in the state. Don’s was a recycling project. And for all his good work he received a $200.00 check, a plaque, a medallion and a ribbon. We congratulate him and in short we can say he came home loaded down.      


1. “Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a person’s training begins, it is the last lesson that he learns thoroughly.” (Thomas H. Huxley, 1825-1895, Biologist)             

2. “You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.” (James G. Bilkey, Author)


                               We will be having a Blood Drive at St. Peter’s on Sunday, May 23rd at 10:00am.


CHOOSE LIFE Mississippi participants in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure requested and received a refund after learning that the breast cancer research group has made donations to the Planned Parenthood abortion business and denies the abortion-breast cancer link. The Komen Foundation donated to Planned Parenthood $711,485 in 2005-6 and at least $726,445 in 2006-7 with the number of affiliates making donations rising from 19 to 25. (Steven Ertelt in online publication, Life News, Nov. 2009)
