Gold Rush Fundraiser

The Gold Rush fundraiser is under way with 456 tickets sold online so far! Starting in June and going through October, we will draw these prizes: five $1,000 winners, one $2,000 winner, one $3,000 winner, one $5,000 winner, and one $10,000 Grand Prize winner. Tickets are $100 each and can be bought individually or as a group. Buy your ticket(s) here - https://GoldRush2021.givesmart.com. All drawings will be recorded and posted to the parish Facebook page and also on the parish website.

As in past years, the profits of this fundraiser are split 50/50 with SS Peter & Paul grade school and parish. This is why you can receive $20 credit for each ticket bought to use towards your student’s SPPCS fundraising goal. Last year we saw a profit of $21,709, with $10,854.50 going to the school and $10,854.50 going to the parish general fund. Thank you for your support!

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.
