2023 SYNOD on SYNODALITY: Why Participate?

posted Jan 2, 2022, 8:39 AM by Pam Dumaine   [ updated Jan 16, 2022, 9:40 AM ]

Synodality is “journeying together” - a way of living out our faith that involves shared responsibility, listening and speaking to one another, and discernment with the Holy Spirit to address the issues facing our Church today. The diocesan consultation about how we journey together is underway, and we want to hear from everyone - as many people as possible, especially those who are often excluded or who are not involved in the life of the Church. There are two main ways to participate. Listening sessions will be held in a variety of formats during the months of January, February and March as determined by parishes, institutions and organizations. And for those unable to join in a listening session, an online survey is available at covdio.org/synod

Why participate?  Because you are a member of the People of God, the Body of Christ!  The People of God share a common dignity and vocation through the Sacrament of Baptism and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit can speak to you and through you!  You have something to say that the Church wants and needs to hear!  

Each week for (5) weeks the committee will offer a question for you to think about.  In February or March you will be invited to share your reflections with other parishioners and friends.

1/9 Question - Who in the Catholic Church has walked with you on your faith journey?  How?
1/16 Question - How do the Mass, Church's ministries and activities inspire you in your daily life?

2022 Offertory Commitment

posted Jan 2, 2022, 8:28 AM by Pam Dumaine

We are trying a new way of sending the Offertory Commitment papers since it is so late getting them out. If the Parish Office had an email address to send your Commitment paper to, this was sent to Parishioners during the week of 12/26.  For all others, the Commitment paper has been mailed to your home.  Please prayerfully consider what you have to offer this year back to the Lord for all your many blessings and then fill out your Commitment paper and drop it in the collection basket in an envelope marked "Parish Office" or "Commitment Paper."

If you wish to give electronically, it is the same as bill pay through your bank account.  You set up so they will send a check to us once a month from your bank account.  It is for your safety that no one hacks your account doing it this way.  You may also just send a check in once a month if that is more convenient.  Than you to all that that have set this up so far.  Please contact the Parish Office (859-635-2924) with questions.

 


COVID Update - May 2021

posted May 29, 2021, 11:16 AM by Pam Dumaine   [ updated May 29, 2021, 11:50 AM ]

The Church is back to almost full capacity attendance with the exception of the last 6 pews on the left side reserved for people with autoimmune and unvaccinated. If those pews are found vacant Five minutes to the beginning of the Mass anyone can occupy them.

We will continue to broadcast the service via radio frequency 91.1 and people afraid to go in due to the Covid-19 can sit outside or be in their cars and listen to the Mass. This service will continue until we hear of all the Covid cases gone from the tri-state.

Offertory is placed in the baskets at the entrance of the church and one may drop the collection envelop in the basket as one walks in for the Mass.

Music books are back in the pews and everyone is allowed to use them.

Music and choir are restored.

If anyone needs communion brought home please call Fr. Jacob and make the arrangements. Extra-Ordinary ministers who are vaccinated are allowed to take communion to the sick.

Parish picnics are scheduled to be held on July 31st and August 28th, unless anything drastically changes with Covid situation.

Family Promise of NKY

posted Jan 21, 2018, 8:48 AM by Pam Dumaine   [ updated May 6, 2018, 8:00 AM ]

Homelessness can seem like an overwhelming problem.  Many people wonder what one person or congregation can do to truly make a difference. 

The Family Promise Interfaith Hospitality Network program provides a way for churches and synagogues to work together to help homeless families.  Each congregation participating in the Network provide overnight lodging and meals for three to five families for one week every 10 to 12 weeks on a rotational basis.

Sts. Peter and Paul will be support church for St. Luke's Lutheran Church but the families will be housed at St. Joseph's old convent in Cold Spring.  This is an important ministry and we are hoping that many of you will be interested in helping. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Mary Beth Rust (635-2795), Theresa Bezold (635-8884) or Carla Martin (448-0507).
