Feel free to pray privately wherever you are in solidarity with those gathered at the Cathedral if you are not able to join in person. You can sign up for weekly reflections at tinyurl.com/healracism.
Our family of parishes has a long history of supporting the work of Habitat for Humanity, and we are excited to re-establish our relationship with this great organization. We will normally be working on the 3rd Saturday of the month. Whether you can come to just one Saturday or come every month, we’d love to have your support. Please go to http://vhub.at/4parishes for information and to sign up for the upcoming volunteer days. No experience is necessary and everyone 16 and over is welcome.

All students in 6th-8th grades from any school or religious background are invited! Our Nova Nights will occur the third Sunday of every month, and will be a ton of fun!

Dads – We Have a Group For You Too!
Bacon Dads was formed as an offshoot of “Beacon Moms”, but we felt the play on words resonated more with our style. We are a community of men from a variety of faith experiences who share the common goal of developing a deeper faith through fellowship, conversation and the occasional beer. The hope is to become better men, husbands and fathers by sharing in each other’s wisdom and strength. We will have two groups meeting in the SS Peter & Paul Church Center every other week, one on Tuesday nights and one on Thursday nights, beginning January 22 & 24. You can see more information and sign up at tinyurl.com/bacondads, or contact Mike Larson at gro.r1547789537etnec1547789537ygolo1547789537cenab1547789537ru@no1547789537sralm1547789537.
Our parish’s turn to prepare, deliver, and serve a meal is the fourth Thursday of the month. If you would like to share in the preparation of stew, jello, hard-cooked eggs, or dessert, or if you would like to serve at the meal, contact Doris Lattos at 262-505-6116 or ten.l1547789537abolg1547789537cbs@s1547789537ottal1547789537sirod1547789537. Recipes are provided upon request.
Please note, because of the warmer weather, brats instead of beef stew are served in July and August. Those who normally prepare beef stew are asked to bring pasta salad or baked beans.
