St Peter Catholic Parish (located on Freya St, after 18th Ave) is hosting seven days of 24-hour Eucharistic Adoration, beginning at noon on Sunday, November 26 (Christ the King) and concluding with Benediction at 11 AM on Saturday, December 2. All Are welcome to hold vigil with the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament any hour during that week, day or night. Praying a Holy Hour in the presence of the Real Presence can be a great way to prepare for the coming of the Christ-Child at Christmas. For more information or to sign up to hold vigil for a specific hour, please contact the parish office at St Peter. (534- 2227)
“As of today, $17,900 has been raised for the Annual Catholic Appeal, which is over 83% of your Parish goal, with 35% of the Parish participating. This is a wonderful testimony to how Fr. Baraza and all of you have stepped up to the plate to support this year’s ACA and I want to thank each of you for your generous support. Please be assured of my prayers for you and your families.”

There is still a chance to have your portrait included in the new parish directory!! If you missed the portrait sessions in August and September, you can have your portrait taken as a visitor at another church in Spokane in November; there are a number of sessions available. Call 1 866 756-0281 to schedule your session – then pick up a visitor card after mass or in the parish office, so that your photo can be included in the St Ann directory. We would love to include all parishioners in the directory! Sign up today!
Don’t forget! Beginning November 11th, Saturday evening mass will begin at 3:00 pm. And it will remain at 3:00 until Daylight Savings Time resumes in the Spring.

It’s not too late to have your portrait taken for the Parish Directory! If you were not able to have your photo taken during one of the portrait sessions in August or September, there is still a chance to have your portrait taken in November, as a visitor at another church where Lifetouch is doing portrait sessions. The portrait session is free, and there are multiple session dates available. Just call 1 866 756-0281 to schedule your portrait session, and pick up a visitor card at mass, or from the parish office, to take with you to your session so that your photo and information can be included in the St Ann directory.
The Winter schedule for Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors is in the process of being put together now. If you would like to become a Lector or a Eucharistic minister, please contact Val. If you are hesitant about joining either ministry, Val can provide a bit of training before you’re scheduled. Also, if you are presently a Liturgical Minister and don’t want to continue, please let her know this week, as the schedule will be turned in to the parish secretary by November 13th. (Contact information for Val is in the bulletin, or can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.)
