As we enter the fourth week of Lent let’s pray: My Savior do you invite me to share in the glory of the resurrection?
Please stay with me as I struggle to see how accepting the crosses of my life will free me from the power of the one who wants only to destroy my love and trust in you. Help me to be humble and accepting like your son, Jesus. I want to turn to you with the same trust he had in your love. Save me, Lord. Only you can save me. May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
Thank you to Mrs. Gonzalez, Mrs. Jimenez, Mrs. Freznosa, Ms. Avila, Mrs. Marissa Gonzalez and the Madrinas group for the wonderful Family Mass and Reception.
A reminder that you re-registration forms were due on March 15th to reserve your space with a $100 deposit. Remaining balance is due April 14th.
ROOT BELIEF: MARCH
I will respect everyone in the St. Peter’s “family” including parents, teachers, staff, and other students. I understand I am still growing even from my mistakes.
STUDENT LEARNING EXPECTATIONS
A St. Peter’s student will comprehend and communicate effectively through reading, writing, speaking, and listening.
You are cordially invited to attend St. Peter's very own First Annual STEM Fair! Students have been hard at work for the last few months developing, creating, and evaluating their very own Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics projects. Now we are excited to have you come and experience the fruit of all of this hard work! Whether you would like to come for a few minutes or stay throughout the day, the event promises to be fun-filled with over 30 unique, student-curated experiences. The event will be hosted in the gymnasium and parish hall building and will be held on Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM. We hope you can make it...and bring a friend!
Every day during Lent there will Mass at St. Peter’s Church at 6:00 PM. On Friday’s there will be Stations of the Cross at 5:30 PM before Mass.
