My dear parishioners: (Friday, Nov. 2 message)

    As you may have heard, my surgery went well and I am now back home at the Rectory and resting as best I can. Once again I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for all of your prayers and support! With plenty of rest and no work, my recovery should be a quick one. I will keep you informed of my progress and expected return. As always, please keep me in your prayers as you are in mine!   

            May God bless you always!

My dear parishioners, (Monday, November 5 message)

    As I said last week, my surgery went well (from 1:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m.) and am trying to rest the best I can.  I will see my doctor on Monday to get rid of the catheter and to see if radiation will be necessary.

Once again I want to express my heartfelt appreciation for all of your prayers and support. A very big thank you to all who are bringing in those soups & hearty dishes to keep up my strength.  As always, please keep me in your prayers as I continue to pray for you.

May God bless you always!

Fr. Bob

St. Peter, Archbold’s Pilgrimage to Italy

St Peter Parish in Archbold is pleased to invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to beautiful Italy from February 10-19, 2019.  We have put together a wonderful opportunity to journey together in faith. Our pilgrimage will take us to Rome, Assisi, Montecassino and Pompeii. In each of these localities Fr. Stephen Stanbery, pastor of St. Peter Parish will lead us in prayer and celebrate the Eucharist as we explore the wonders of amazing Basilicas, such as St. Francis and St. Peter. This pilgrimage is designed specifically as a reparation pilgrimage during this time of trial. We must come together as a family of faith and beg the Lord for forgiveness and to offer reparation for the sins committed by priests, bishops and any member of the Church, especially the depraved sins against children and the vulnerable. It is also a time to ask God to heal those who have been wounded by sin, to turn our own hearts away from anything that is evil and to renew our commitment to holiness. Whether you’ve been to Italy three dozen times, or this is your first trip abroad, this pilgrimage is sure to make memories of a lifetime. We promise you that it will also expand your knowledge of the Church and deepen your faith. We hope you’ll join us in journeying through one of the most beautiful countries on earth, and visiting the heart of the Catholic Church - Rome. Check the bulletin board at each site for a copy of the itinerary. stpeterarchbold.com/events/special-events/  or visit parvistours.com/rome-catholic-pilgrimage/  to register. If you prefer not to register online you may call Parvis Tours to register by phone: 1-810-644-5229 or send the registration form by mail. If you have any questions reach out to the Group Leader - Marianne Francis, at (419) 405-3229 or stpeterpilgrimage@gmail.com  or contact Parvis Tours directly 1-810-644-5229 or contact@parvispilgrimages.com  It is our hope that we will all come together when our prayers are needed more than ever.
