3. Madison Public Health Chart for COVID-19 for student, faculty/staff member can return to school. This chart is a helpful tool for you to know what you need to do if your child is exposed to someone who has COVID or is they are diagnosed with COVID. Electronic version was sent home earlier this week thru Flocknote.
4. Family Adoration reminder for this coming Sunday.
5. 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 classrooms 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!!

3. Reminder: 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 40Days 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. 23 – Nov. 1. Our hours are on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 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. If this time doesn’t work for you, visit vigilforlife.org to sign-up for the 24/7 campaign at your convenience.
4. The St. Anne Group invites all women to our weekly meetings right after 8:15 a.m. Mass on Fridays; we start around 9:00 a.m. We meet in the connector to look ahead to Sunday's Gospel, pray together and spend time together, all in about an hour. Children are welcomed to play, too. Contact Laura Karlen (608-445-2064 or email@example.com) for more information.
5. Holy Spirit Hustle money is due to the office by this Friday, October 9th. Please turn in anything you might have. Award ceremony is on Monday, October 12, so final numbers need to be tallied.
6. The Feast of All Saints is on November 1, which is a Sunday. Typically, this Holy Day of Obligation is a treat day for our students. Because it falls on a Sunday this year, we will have students dress as their favorite saints for our observance on Monday, November 2. Each child should choose a saint that they are interested in and learn about that saint. Students in K-1 should just have the name of their saint. Students in grades 2-5 should have two facts about their saint written out on a note card. Students may "dress" as the saint, if they have clothing that will work for the costume. Often though, students 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. St. Gianna Beretta Molla was a modern doctor, so your daughter could dress as a doctor.
After Mass on Monday, November 2, students will be called up to front of church with Mrs. Klaas announcing which saint they are and the two facts about that 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 presentation, we will come back to school and have a treat in the classrooms. PreK will not participate in Mass that day, but will dress as saints and celebrate in their classroom.
Parents are welcome to come to Mass and see all the great costumes after Mass.
