Sister Paula’s Motto

“It pays to collect labels!”

That is a favorite motto of Sister Paula Bingert and she continues to promote saving labels to benefit St. Peter’s.

If you would like to help out Sister Paula in her efforts, save your Campbell’s UPC labels, the General Mills Box Top labels, and the Tyson chicken labels (shown here).  She submits all of them from time to time and receives cold hard cash with which something needed is purchased for the buildings or programs.

Where to drop them if you begin to collect?  Parish Center Office and ask they be put in Sister Paula’s mailbox.  Or if you are a collector from afar, mail to Sister Paula Bingert, St. Peter’s Parish Center, 104 W. First Street, Mansfield, OH 44902.

THANK YOU!

Birthday Bash

For all those friends at St. Peter’s who were born before 1940, it was a great day for a Birthday Bash this past Sunday.  Held in the Franciscan Activity Center Atrium in the afternoon, everyone had a wonderful time and the sing-a-long was a special treat!  Thank you to Sister Bernard Marie and Sister Paula for the photo and for organizing this event every year!

 

Star Spangled Banner Anniversary Celebration

Mansfield St. Peter’s Boy Scout Troop 121, Mayor Tim Theaker, and others held a celebration at the South Park Block House in honor of the 200th Anniversary of the Star Spangled Banner.

Written by Francis Scott Key in 1814 after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry, the song quickly became a favorite of live bands who played during public events. President Woodrow Wilson eventually made an official order that the Star Spangled Banner be played at military-related events, and shortly after that, the tune became America’s national anthem.  A short service was held at the South Park Block House, including traditional cannon-fire, the raising of the flag, and the singing of the National Anthem.

“I take great pride in living here in this country, especially in Mansfield,” said Mayor Tim Theaker. “The veterans, the army, the navy, and the military do so much and put their lives on the line for us every time they go out. We can only honor them in what we do.”

Aside from the ceremony held by St. Peter’s Boy Scout Troop, historical re-enactors participated to give attendees a taste of what life in the 1800s was like, complete with period authentic clothing and accessories.

Thank you to Scoutmaster Chris Baldasare for this story and photos.
