SEASONS OF HOPE: A St. Peter Support Group for the Bereaved

A Christ-centered support group is for you if any of these are true:

You are looking for friends in Christ to share your journey of sorrow.

You’ve been trying to figure out the meaning of your grief.

You want to get on with life but haven’t been able to.

You are open to new ways of coping with your grief.

You find comfort in the teaching of Christ.

You don’t want to feel alone anymore.

Our Lord assured us that those who mourn are blessed, and that they shall be comforted. Seasons of Hope offers bereaved parishioners an opportunity to come together to share in God’s love. Seasons of Hope help us explore mourning through scripture, prayer, reflection activities and faith sharing.  Come and be comforted.

Seasons of Hope, Season One meets for six sessions. Anyone who is mourning the loss of a loved one is encouraged to attend and invited to bring a guest. Please join us at the St. Peter Ursuline Hall Westhoff Room, Mondays, Nov. 21-Feb. 6, 7-8:30pm.

Are you or someone you know in need of prayers, comfort or a Eucharistic visit?
The Pastoral Visitors, Prayer Shawl and Eucharistic Ministers are ministries here at St. Peter to reach out to the needs of our parish community.  These needs can be prayers in times of sickness.  A visit to those in hospitals or nursing homes.  A friendly card to lift the spirits. The comfort of a prayer shawl.  The ability to receive the Eucharist.  Because we respect your privacy the parish policy requires that you or a family member notifies the church office if you would like to participate in these loving services. By calling the office you give the parish permission to pass your name to one of these ministries. If you know of any of your fellow parishioners who would benefit from one of these services please encourage them to call or have a family member call on their behalf. Contact the church office at 966-8600 to request one of these services.  For more information, please call Kay Komotos with Pastoral Visitors at 314-221-8104. 

Prayer Shawl Group

Attention all knitters and crocheters!

We have started a Prayer Shawl Group to support the Pastoral Visitors Ministry of St. Peter. The mission of this ministry is to reach out to the members of our Parish family who are ill, in nursing homes or lost a loved one, with prayer and support. If you are interested in being a part of the Prayer Shawl Group or have any questions please contact Karen Frome, 314-965-7975 or kjfrome@swbell.net.

If you don't knit or crochet but would like to support the group with donations of yarn or monetary donations to purchase yard for the project, please contact Karen for that information as well. 

Traveling Chalice Program
The Traveling Chalice Program is designed to pray for religious vocations. Parishioners are asked to take the chalice home and display it in a place of honor, where all throughout the week they can notice it. Parishioners will pray around the chalice every night for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Prayers for vocations will accompany the chalice. You can choose which Mass your family would like to receive the chalice. If you are interested in signing up for a week please contact Theresa Finlay at finlaytf@yahoo.com for more information. 

Sts. Teresa & Bridget Food Pantry

On the 3rd Monday of each month, donations will be delivered to Sts. Teresa & Bridget Food Pantry. We will collect checks and cash for the purchase of additional food. Food donations are welcome anytime.

DROP OFF LOCATION:
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. 

 

Rosary for the USA
Yes, we’re praying for bishops, priests, the Supreme Court, every citizen, government officials, and all from Alabama to Wyoming! Our causes are for leadership, wisdom, humility, contrition, and honor. We pray that all of our God-given liberties will be respected and protected.

Please join your fellow parishioners every Sunday (except holidays) at 5:00 PM in The Gathering Space in church.
