Lenten Almsgiving for The Jack Brewer Foundation:
Feb 14 – Apr 1
This year, St. Peter’s Lenten Alms will be given to The Jack Brewer Foundation. This foundation was established by former 3-time NFL team captain and White House Presidential Appointee, Jack Brewer. Since 2006, the honorable Mr. Jack Brewer has tirelessly led the organization and developed worldwide programs including prison ministry, disaster and medical relief missions, orphan care and feeding programs, American Heroes fatherless youth program and a curriculum that supports incarcerated veterans and youthful offenders. Each program aims to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.
To date, the foundation has delivered over $70 million in medical aid, supports over 35 orphan care centers and helps bring medical care to over 20,000 women and children around the world. Its’ Disaster Relief Team has brought lifesaving resources and aid to families during some of the world’s most terrible natural disasters!
Mr. Brewer believes the only way to end America’s Fatherhood crisis is to move toward a national revival to bring biblical truth back to the foundation of our nation’s institutions! Currently, we have in our country 18.5 million children who are fatherless and who need to be mentored. The Jack Brewer Foundation and its’ American Heroes Fatherhood Initiative provides the necessary resources to help turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. These are just some of the reasons why our Lenten Almsgiving will go to The Jack Brewer Foundation! If you would like more information, visit their website at TheJackBrewerFoundation.org.

Lenten Fasting and Abstinence: Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and Fridays during Lent
Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.
- Everyone 14 years of age or older is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, as well as all the Fridays of Lent and Good Friday.
- Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
- On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.
Spiritual Warfare Rosary: Every Wednesday evening 6:00 pm
St. Padre Pio declared, “The Rosary is the weapon for these times.” Especially now the world is in great need of this weapon to combat hatred, anxiety, illness, and hardship. ... It is said that the Rosary is a chain that links heaven and earth, with one end in our hands and the other in the hands of Our Holy Mother.
Msgr. Joe invites you to join him the in the Church every Wednesday evening at 6:00pm as he prays for the intentions of our Blessed Mother.
Prayers and Squares: Second Thursday of the month at 1:30pm in the Parish Hall
There is nothing more comforting than a blanket or shawl woven with love and prayers!
What better way to spend time than to sit around chit-chatting with your parish family creating beautiful blankets or prayer shawls for those who need our prayers and comfort. If you don’t know how to knit or crochet, no worries. We are here to share our talents with you. We will teach anyone what they need to know to create the most beautiful and comfortable blankets.
If anyone would like a prayer shawl or blanket for themselves of someone else, please contact Elaine at 815-678-9932.
