3. During the month of October, we will be collecting donations at school for our annual Box of Joy service project! We are in need of small toys, school supplies, and hygiene items that will be used to fill gift boxes for girls and boys living in extreme poverty in developing countries (suggested donations at this link or on the handout included in your Wednesday folder). We will assemble the Boxes of Joy in our "Faith Family" small groups with all of the items collected, during a school day in early November. Individual boxes are also available to families that would like to organize assembling your own Boxes of Joy. Please email email@example.com if you would like a box, or multiple boxes for any groups you are a part of that would like to participate. St. Peter's will again be serving as a Drop Off Center for Cross Catholic Outreach the week of Nov. 3rd -10th, which is when we will be collecting filled Boxes of Joy and taking care of getting them shipped to the distribution center in Florida. Please help spread the love of Christ and joy of Christmas by getting involved with this service project - your donations of items or financial contributions to help offset the shipping expense ($9 per box), and your prayers, are all greatly appreciated! For many children, a Box of Joy – filled with toys, clothing, school supplies, a Rosary and the Story of Jesus – is the first Christmas gift they ever receive. Thank you so much for your generosity!!
4. We are excited to start our new WEEKLY St. Peter's moms' group on Monday, October 21, 2019 right after Mass (8:50 or so); we'll wrap up to clean up by 10:00 a.m. To help us start up the group, please visit our Sign-Up Genius to see if you can contribute one or more items to get us going.

5. Join St. Peter Parish (Ashton) and St. Martin Parish (Martinsville) in praying at Planned Parenthood (3706 Orin Rd. Madison) for one hour this fall during the 40 Days for Life peaceful vigil. Statistics show that more women choose life when prayer warriors are visible on the sidewalk. St. Peter-St. Martin Parishes need your help to fill the hours we have committed to over the 6-week campaign from Sept. 25 – Nov. 3. Our hours are on Saturday from 12-3 p.m. Are you willing to help fill just one of those hours? Contact Laura Karlen at 608-445-2064 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

7. DEADLINE! LAST CALL! The deadline for Holy Spirit Hustle business sponsorship's was Tuesday, October 15, 2019. If you have a business sponsorship that you are working on, please contact Laura Karlen right away so that we can be sure to include the business in our promotions and complete the necessary paperwork. If you need the business sponsorship description or form, please stop by the school or parish office.
8. Feast of All Saints is on November 1. Each child should choose a saint that they are interested in and be prepared with at least two things to share about their saint. (Students can bring two items that are "identifiers" of their saint as props to help them. For example, St. Peter is the rock on which Jesus built His Church and holds the key to the Church as the first Pope, so your child might bring a rock and keys.) After Mass on Friday, November 1, students will line up in the back of Church and then process to the front singing When the Saints Come Marching In. Students will then be seated and each class will come to the front and tell who their saint is and share the two bits of information about their saint. While coming dressed as a saint is optional, there are some great web sites with cute saint costumes that look easy to make. I have attached a few web links for you to visit. After our procession, we will come back to school and have a treat in the school cafeteria.
