Catholic High Junior’s Service Day

As part of the formation of our students at Catholic High, each year the Juniors have a day set aside to offer service in our local church parishes. On Tuesday, February 8th the Juniors assigned to St. Peter Parish tackled some projects that were very helpful. These projects included helping the staff get ahead with some office work, cleaning the windows of the parish office, mopping the parish hall and kitchen, dust mopping the church and choir loft, assisting with cleanup at St. Peter Cemetery and assisting the yard crew with various cleanup work on the church grounds. We are most appreciative of our students going out into the community to offer service. It is certainly a reminder to them that our school is a parochial school. This workday is a visible sign that Catholic High is an extension of the ministry of the four owner parishes.

St. Peter’s Crochet Group

The St. Peter Crochet Group's mission is to let those who are in need spiritually. physically or mentally know that they are not alone and that someone is praying for them. The group does this by creating blankets - whether crocheted, knitted or sewn - and praying for those who receive them. If you are looking to share your talents in this ministry, the group meets every Wednesday in the Church's conference room from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. For more information, you may contact Barbara Burke at 577-2119. We invite anyone with any talent who would like to participate in this ministry.

Vascular and Abdominal Ultrasound Screenings

On February 21, 2020, Rightway Imaging will be bringing its mobile unit to St. Peter Catholic Church to perform 10 vascular and abdominal ultrasound screenings which are non-invasive and painless. They will be screening the Carotid Arteries on both sides of the neck checking for fatty plaque build-up and blockage. THIS IS THE #1 CAUSE OF STROKE! The Thyroid for cysts, masses and unusual growth which is very common among women. The Lower Abdominal Aorta for aneurysms which can go unnoticed until the point of rupture. The liver, spleen, gallbladder, and both right and left kidneys for cysts, masses, unusual growth, kidney stones and gallstones, which can go unnoticed until pain begins and can be a good indicator of future issues of the body. And finally, they will be offering an Electrocardiogram monitoring heart activity for afibulation. In addition, we offer a Blood Oxygen Level screening. These are tests that are NOT performed on routine physicals, nor will insurance companies pay for them unless you are symptomatic. In a hospital, these tests could cost thousands collectively.

They will offer these tests for $45 each, or all 9 screenings for $169.00, which is about $17 per test. If you are over the age of 35, smoke, physically in-active, or if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or family history of stroke, heart disease, or cancer, please take advantage of these tests. Call to register at 281-616-9192.

What is Natural Family Planning? (NFP)

Also called fertility awareness, Natural Family Planning (NFP) is a term used to naturally achieve or postpone pregnancy. These methods are based on observation of the naturally occurring signs and symptoms of the fertile and infertile phases of a woman's cycle. No drugs, devices, or surgical procedures are used to postpone pregnancy. NFP reflects the dignity of the woman within the context of marriage and family life, promotes openness to life, and recognizes the value of the child. By respecting the love-giving and lifegiving natures of marriage, NFP can enrich the bond between husband and wife.

The Diocese of Lafayette currently has instructors trained in the following methods: Billings Ovulation Method, Creighton Model System and Sympto-Thermal Method. Please contact Kelly Chapman at the Diocese of Lafayette (337) 261-5653 to learn more or to register for learning a seminar on a particular method.
