Flocknote Instructions:

We are aware that not everyone was able to sign up for Flocknote a few weeks ago, so we are including step by step instructions to help you receive messages about important parish information. For those of you who do not know what Flocknote is, it is a messaging system that allows the coordinator of each parish ministry to send out important notes and reminders to those involved in that particular ministry. For example, Adoration Adorers will be reminded about First Friday Adoration a few days prior to the Thursday it begins. Fr. Blanda and Fr. Albert will be able to send out messages about special Masses, cancellations, and overall important information about things going on in the parish.

If you receive either text messages or E-mails, you can sign up for Flocknote. Flocknote is free as long as you are paying for text messages. If your plan only allows a certain amount of messages, then you may be charged if you go over your message allowance that month. Flocknotes are not sent out often, so charges should not be an issue.

If you have any questions about Flocknote, please contact the Parish Office at 369-3816.

1. Go to your text messages and create a new message and type stpeters (all lowercase and one word as shown) as the message, and send the text to 84576.

2. You will receive a text message with an Internet link similar to this:

3. Click the link and create a profile with your first name and last name.

4. Choose the ministries that YOU are involved in. Please do not choose a ministry that you or your child (if applicable) are not directly involved in! Approval has to be given for each ministry, and if you are not part of that ministry, you will not be allowed in that group. If you are not involved in any ministries but would like to receive general messages from Fr. Blanda, Fr. Albert, and staff, then you will be able to receive those just by signing up.

The Conversation: A Catholic Perspective on End-of-Life Issues

When: February 23, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. - Noon
Where: Diocese of Lafayette - Immaculata Center
John XXIII Meeting Room, 1408 Carmel Dr.
Lafayette, LA 70501

Conversations about illness, dying and death itself are never easy. Whether death comes suddenly or after a prolonged illness, we are often uncomfortable discussing our medical wishes, or our hopes surrounding the end of life. This seminar is for people over 18 years of age and in various life situations: singles, parents of young families, those caring for aging parents and those facing illness or death. Topics will include:

  •  A Christian Perspective on Death and Dying
  •  Catholic Principles on End of Life issues
  •  Advanced Planning /Advanced Directives
  •  Planning a Catholic Funeral (Q & A handout)

The seminar will conclude with a Prayer Service reflecting on Christ and the Paschal Mystery.
