Outsider Honor Roll Club

Now in its 38th year, the Honor Roll Club has contributed a total of $298,050 to the church picnic. From $2,000 in 1982 to over ten times that in 2018 when the donations reached $21,025. The Honor Roll is on a roll!

What started as an idea by the former 21st Amendment to supply the picnic with beer, the now Outsiders Honor Roll has become Saints Peter & Paul picnic’s largest contributor.

Divided almost equally 50-50 between parishioners and members of other churches in Monroe County, the Outsiders Honor Roll Club gives new meaning to “it takes a village. . . . or in this case, a county.”

Join the Club to make 2019 our best year yet by:
                   Donating $75 to purchase the equivalent of 4 cases of beer or $25 for soda or both for $100.

It’s that easy. Your name will be then be added to the Honor Roll and proudly displayed at the picnic.

HOW?  Simply send your check payable to SPPS c/o Butch Kunkel at The Outsider, 104 S. Market Street, Waterloo, IL or to the church office. Call 939-9913 for more information.

Thanks to everyone for past and future support!

Women's ACT Retreat

“ACTS family and friends allowed me to spiritually open my mind, heart and soul to understand that what God wants me to do daily is different than the everyday routine”

“I had been searching for ways to get closer to God on my own. The ACTS Retreat helped me to strengthen that
relationship in so many ways.”

“The ACTS Retreat Weekend for me was a spiritual awakening and much needed conversion. Now I am directing my focus and energy on following Him
and striving to stay on this long-life path.”

“My ACTS Retreat showed me how to listen to Gods whispers even in the most
noisy day-to-day experiences.”

“I’ve wanted to get to know my fellow parishioners better. The ACTS Retreat gave me quality time to get to know and form new lasting relationships w/ my fellow Retreatants and the Team.”

Pray for vocations to the Priesthood!
