Prayer & Action is at St. Peter's!
Prayer & Action is a 5-day mission trip that takes place within the Diocese of Wichita. Participants stay at the host Parish in simple, dormitory-style accommodations; prepare their own meals; join the parish for daily Mass; and serve local families that are in need. Typical service includes painting, minor repairs, house and yard cleaning.
St. Peter’s will be hosting four Prayer & Action sessions in the month of June! Participants for each session will arrive on Sunday evening around 5:00 PM and leave around Noon on Friday. This is a large and worthy endeavor, and we need your help!
How can I help?
To make the Prayer & Action visit to St. Peter’s successful, there are certain things that we need: First and foremost, We need JOBS! These jobs should be aimed to assisting the elderly, disabled, widowed/widower, struggling families’ homes and yards, etc. Priority will be given to those with the greatest needs. Keep in mind that the work will be amateur work, completed by supervised high schoolers in crews of 8-10 during the day. Jobs could include exterior house/garage/shed painting, yard work, minor repairs, interior painting, organizing cluttered spaces, etc. We need a combination of about 20 “large jobs” (jobs that could take a whole week) and 50 “small jobs” (jobs that could take half a day to a whole day). We prefer the homeowner be present while the crew is there working. It is better to have too many jobs than too few! See below for information on the three possible ways to refer potential work sites.
Here’s how to refer a job site:

We need TOOLS!
Of course the jobs are important, but we also need the proper tools to accomplish the tasks at hand! We are looking for generous parishioners to lend us some tools for Prayer & Action; tools such as ladders, rakes, hedgers, painting equipment, shovels, gardening tools, etc. Please label the tool with your name and we will return it at the end of June, or upon request. Please bring all tools to St. Peter’s Parish Office.
We need SNACKS!
If you would like to donate snacks for the Prayer & Action sessions, follow the sign up genius link here: Snacks for Prayer & Action Link
We need PRAYERS!
After all, this is Prayer & Action! Please keep the team, chaperones, participants, and homeowners in your prayers that the Merciful Heart of Christ will shine through this June!
