Women's Christ Renews His Parish Weekend

The Women's Christ Renews His Parish Weekend (CRHP) will take place on March 18th and 19th. CRHP is a time reserved just for women from Saturday morning until Sunday afternoon for personal and spiritual renewal. There is the added benefit of getting to know other women in our parishes. No cooking. No cleaning. No distractions. Just time to be with our Lord. 

Are you new to St. Peter or St. Mary? Then this is the perfect time to get to know others and let us welcome you. It is also a great time to come back and become reacquainted. 

Not Catholic but feeling this might be for you? You are certainly welcome to join us.

For more details, please contact Connie Taggart at513-646-6494 or Jen Binder (513) 317-0185. 

To learn more about CRHP, click "Faith Formation" on this web site and choose "Christ Renews His Parish" to read more and decide if this is for you.

Join the Saturday Morning Men's Bible Study at St. Peter Church in New Richmond! We meet on Saturday Mornings from 7 AM to 8:30 AM at the church. ALL men of St. Peter and St. Mary are welcome and encouraged to attend. Call or email Terry Cox at 513- 236-7640 (terrycox14@gmail.com) with questions or to sign up for this study. You are welcome to join this group anytime. 


The first study will be on the book of the Acts of The Apostles and will take approximately 10 weeks to complete. We will be using a study guide and commentary from LiLle Rock Scripture to guide us through this study. Study guides are $15 dollars which should be the only expense for this scripture study program. 


If you have tried or thought about studying scripture in the past but didn't find a way that worked for you, then consider giving this small group a try. This study will be a great way to go deeper into Holy scripture and learn with and from other men who desire to be more like Jesus and to be the best Catholic Christian guys we can be.

BELLS OF ST. MARY’S UPDATE

We hope all of you are enjoying our new IT Verdin Digital Carillon Bell System. As you have likely experienced, we are able to choose different ringing patterns and peals that include some great realistic bell sounds! We have also selected music to play that is appropriate for whatever liturgical season we are in. It has certainly made a real difference here at St. Mary and is no comparison to the single bell that has rusted in place up in the front of the church.

 

As you might recall, for months back in the summer, the soil was too wet to mount the two additional speakers. The large lift required dry soil so it would be secure when extended to extreme heights. Thanks to parishioner Konrad Sandker, the speakers are now mounted and Kim Trout (the audio engineer) has wired them into the bell system. 

 

Efforts are currently being made to prepare the memorial plaque for the Gathering Space. We are currently working with a reputable supplier who is well known by some members of St. Mary. We hope to have the plaque soon.

Things never seem to go as you want expect but this project has certainly been worth the wait. It has been completed thanks to the many donors in our parish who saw the vision and importance to St. Mary to having a bell system. No money from the Sunday collections were used to complete this installation. A big thank you to those who have made this project possible. It has been a great addition for our 75th Anniversary.
