Parish News

As a reminder, the words of the Mass are changing next Sunday (Nov. 27th). This is also the first Sunday in Advent and the first Sunday of the Church’s liturgical year. In each of the pews is a pew card that has the changes marked out. Please keep these pew cards in the pew! Do NOT take them with you. If you would like to purchase one of these cards for your own personal use, please call the Parish Office. Everyone will be required to use either the pew cards or the Missalettes on Nov. 27th so that everyone recites together the new changes.

Also, this year we will be having a Holy Hour every Sunday of Advent beginning on Nov. 27th at 7:00 PM—8:00 PM. There will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the celebration of Evening Prayer (Vespers) and Benediction. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Sts. Peter and Paul Annual Golden Mass and Collection for Christmas Food Baskets Our parish will continue its long-standing tradition (44 yrs.) of providing food baskets at Christmas time. You may bring non-perishable food to our Golden Mass on Thursday, Dec. 8, as well as the weekend before (Dec. 3-4) and the weekend following (Dec. 10-11). All food will be sorted and boxed, and deliveries will be on Saturday, Dec. 17th. If you wish to contribute money to help but bread, meat, cheese and other perishables, please put contributions in a separate envelope or take to the parish office. Please be as generous as you’ve been in past years. Volunteers are needed to sort, pack, and distribute. To nominate a family for a food basket or to volunteer, call the parish office at 715-423-1351 or Tom Brehmer at 715-424-1656.
