Amazing. Unbelievable. Thankful. We wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who helped with the drive-through Wurstmarkt this year. We will admit that we did not know how many to expect, but we certainly did not expect to sell out so quickly. We planned for fewer people and sold about 600 meals in less than 2 hours! We are thankful for everyone who helped us in any way. We will include our final profits as soon as we have all the numbers in, but please know we are thankful for everyone’s participation, contributions, and prayers for good weather.
Thank you -
Mark Knese & Staci Wittenauer

Tuesday, March 23rd – 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Married Saints – presenter: Karen Seaborn
This will be presented in the AFF House. The number in attendance will be determined by the COVID restrictions at that time. It will also be recorded on the parish FaceBook Live page. www.facebook.com/ssppccwaterloo
When we think of saints, we often think of the many beautiful men and women who have chosen celibacy as their life vocation. Certainly many of our canonized saints are popes, bishops, priests, religious sisters, martyrs, and mystics. Yet our church also canonizes married men and women, who, like many of us, had careers and raised a family. Some are even canonized together as a married couple. Join us and learn about some of these already canonized saints and some who are in the process of canonization even today.
Bio: Karen and her husband, Scott, have been SSPPCC parishioners for sixteen years. They have spent the past 27 years serving in marriage ministries, including Worldwide Marriage Encounter. You may recognize Karen as our former Pastoral Associate for Adult Faith Formation. Karen is nearing completion of her Doctor of Ministry thesis on the importance of married couples as preachers of the gospel of Christ’s love to each other and the world. Our church’s married saints can be a model for all married couples.
St. Andrew Dinner
The Vocations Office is excited to launch a new initiative in promoting opportunities for young men to learn more about the priesthood. The events are known as St. Andrew Dinners and they give young men of high school and college age, along with their parents, a chance to gather with Bishop McGovern, Vocation Director Father Nick Junker, and some of the parish priests for a low-key evening of supper and conversation about priesthood.
"I think it is important for us to offer opportunities for young men (along with their parents) to hear more about what it's like to be a priest, what goes into the decision to pursue the seminary or religious life, and what are the skills you need to develop in order to hear God's voice," said Bishop McGovern. "Both young men and their parents have many good questions that they would like answered as they consider the future."
If you are interested in attending one of the St. Andrew Dinners, or have any questions, please contact Father Junker at [email protected] or call him at 618.722.5035.
Our parish community and surrounding parishes joined in celebrating the gifts of Fr. Sebastian and Angela Atkinson as well as welcoming Fr. Evaristus to the parish. This celebration was an opportunity to see the bountiful blessing of this community. The gifts of time, talent and treasure were shared by all. Thank you again for everyone involved in making this day a success!
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
