#iGiveCatholic – Advanced Giving Is Open!

On Tuesday, November 28, 2017 (#GivingTuesday), the Catholic Foundation of Georgia and the Archdiocese of Atlanta are joining with 16 other archdioceses and dioceses across the nation in celebrating our Catholic identity on Giving Tuesday and supporting the organizations that help shape our souls. There are 66 parishes, Catholic schools and non-profits/ministries participating in this inaugural year. Each parish/organization is raising funds for needs that will help them to serve their parishioners, students and constituents now and in the future. At St. Peter’s Catholic Church we are raising funds for facility upgrades including new carpet and technology improvements in the parish hall, and furnishing a hospitality room.

Mark Tuesday, November 28, 2017 on your calendar for #iGiveCatholic. The website for #iGiveCatholic is https://igivecatholic.org/designee/st-peters-catholic-church-lagrange-ga. If you would like to make a donation prior to this date, advanced giving runs from November 10th to November 26th. Help us spread the word and connect with us on Facebook, Twitter (@splgcc), and Instagram (splgcc).

Young Adult Social

Young Adult Social

Are you looking to grow in your faith while connecting with other young adults of the parish? We are striving to bring together young adult Catholics in Heard, Troup, and Meriwether counties to share in faith, service, and fun. Fr. Tim invites you to join him and other young adults for our first social event to get to know each other at the Brickhouse Grille located at 141 Main Street in LaGrange on Wednesday, November 8th at 6:00 pm.

If you plan on joining us, please contact the parish office before the end of the day Monday, November 6th at (706) 884-4224 or info@stpeterslagrange.net so we can get a head count to reserve enough space at the Brickhouse. We look forward to seeing you there!

Parish Directory – Online Registration

Parish Directory – Online Registration

Planning for our new parish directory is underway and our goal is to include everyone in the parish!
In addition to the regular registration opportunities following Mass on specific weekends, you can
now reserve your photography session online! Our online reservation site is located at https://booknow-lifetouch.appointment-plus.com/y7e6bqhg/, you can also find a link to the
online reservation page on our church website at stpeterslagrange.net. Some key points to
remember when booking your appointment online: 1) You must enter the number of persons in
your group first. A group is defined as each family that has a separate listing in the directory. If you have a multi-generational
family and you also want a group photo of the entire family, you will need to list each group (separate listing) in subsequent time slots when registering. Please note that all members of a multi-generational family MUST arrive at the first time slot to accommodate enough time for each group photo session as well as the multi- generational photo session.2) If your immediate family has more than 7 persons it will automatically allocate 2 slots. Remember each family group needs to have their own slot (the slot will correspond to a listing in the directory) Any family or friends that are not part of the parish that want a photo need a separate slot even though they will not be in the directory.3) Each time slot denotes the arrival time only. Please allow up to one hour for each photo session. There are explicit directions on the website for registration. If you have any difficulties with the online reservation site, please contact Debby Rand at 706-756-2695.

Daughter of St. Gianna to Speak at Three Atlanta-Area Parishes

Dr. Gianna Emanuela Molla, daughter of St. Gianna, will speak at three Atlanta-area parishes next month: St. Brigid, Holy Trinity and Holy Spirit.

Dr. Molla was born on April 21, 1962 to St. Gianna Beretta Molla, an Italian wife, mother and pediatrician. St. Gianna died one week following the birth of her daughter – April 28, 1962 – after suffering through a high-risk pregnancy during which she was encouraged to terminate the pregnancy to save her own life.

During her presentations, Dr. Molla will speak about her “saint mom,” family life and efforts with the St. Gianna Beretta Molla Foundation to honor, perpetuate and spread around the world the memory, testimony and spirituality of her mother; particularly through the “Ponte Nuovo Project,” where Dr. Molla hopes to restore the holy places of her mother’s life, including the creation of an international center of prayer, study and spirituality that will welcome pilgrims from all around the world.

It’s Time For A New Parish Directory

Can you believe it has been four years since we had our parish directory published? We have witnessed many changes and welcomed many new families to our parish since then, so we are coordinating with LifeTouch to produce a new parish directory! Photo dates will be November 19-21 (Sunday through Wednesday), November 24/25 (Friday/Saturday), and December 5-9 (Tuesday—Saturday). Save these dates now, and we will have more information here in the bulletin in the coming weeks! This is also the perfect opportunity for holiday family photos and gift giving!
