Parish Gift for Deacon Smith (Father Smith)

Fr. Brent Smith It was a great privilege for our parish of St. Peter’s to have been a part of Deacon Smith’s, soon Father Smith’s, seminary formation as he served here for his deacon internship. Our parish is gathering funds for a collective gift to Deacon Smith which will represent his diaconal ministry here at St. Peter’s.

Each ordinand usually purchases a solemn set of vestments at the time of his ordination to the priesthood. A solemn set, usually white or gold in color, consists of a chasuble (the priest’s vestment), two dalmatics (the deacon’s vestment), a cope and a humeral veil which are used for benediction. Since Deacon Smith has already been gifted a complete solemn set, I would like to offer from the parish to him a chasuble in green for the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass during Ordinary Time in the Church’s Liturgical Year. The vestment will cost approximately $1,500.00. If you wish to contribute to this collective gift, please place your donation in the envelope attached above.

The envelope may be placed in the collection at church or dropped off at our parish office. Checks should be made payable to St. Peter Parish. If more funds are collected than needed for the chasuble, the residual funds will be given to Deacon Smith (Father Smith) as an extra gift to assist in the defraying of costs associated with his ordination.

We look forward to having Father Smith return to our parish soon after his ordination to the Sacred Priesthood to offer a Mass of Thanksgiving.

Pro-Life Baby Bottle Campaign June 23rd & 24th

Baby Bottle CampaignA pro-life fundraising campaign will be held next weekend to benefit our regional pregnancy resource center along with its related ministries. ALL OF THE SERVICES ARE PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE.

Together, they will provide pregnancy testing, consulting, ultrasound imaging, abstinence education, as well as adoption options and other services to pregnant women in need. Over 80% of pregnant mothers will choose life, rather than abortion, after receiving these services. Baby bottles to place donations in will be available after all Masses and may be returned the following weekend with your donation.

Please be generous and be a part of saving babies and families!

Prayer for Seminarians

O Lord Jesus Christ, great High Priest, I pray that you call many worthy souls to your holy priesthood. Enlighten the Bishop and Vocation Director in the choice of candidates, the Spiritual Directors in molding them, and the professors instructing them. Lead the seminarians daily in your unerring footsteps, so that they may become priests who are models of purity, possessors of wisdom, and heroes of sacrifice. May they be steeped in humility and aflame with love for God and man, apostles of your glory and sanctifiers of souls. Mary, Queen of the Clergy, pray for us. Amen
