The Monster Mash Bash is also this month. See insert for information and Carol I. if you can volunteer, attend or donate to this great fundraiser.
Sweet Returns Baker’s Square Pie Cards are now for sale! See Annie or the Office to get yours, and the bulletin insert for all the details.
Next Sunday is Reformation Sunday. We’ll present Bibles to Sincere Williams and Isaiah Calvin, which is fitting as the sermon will look at a Reformation emphasis on Scripture (as well as the Church).
Ten Thousand Villages Fundraiser Correction- It was previously reported in the Announcer that our TTV Fundraiser day would be November 16th. It is November 30th, from 5:30 PM to 8 PM.

Also coming in November we will again be collecting for the 11/11 Military Outreach USA program, so be on the lookout for a list of supplies soon!

Substitutes for Secretary– Paid Position! St. Peter’s would like to compile a list of people who can be available to fill in for (but never replace!) our awesome Admin Laura when she takes her vacation days throughout the year. Duties are VERY light – simply answering the phone and the door – and it is a paid position! Hours can be flexible, and if you prefer to donate your time, you are welcome to put the paycheck back into the offering plate. Please contact a member of the Personnel Committee if we can add you (or a retired friend, student home on break, etc.!) to our list of options! Kathy Z, Jen S, Peggy R, Maria A, or you can just let Laura know, too.
Disney’s “Aladdin Junior” will be playing at the Prairie Lakes Community Center in Des Plaines the weekends of October 27th and November 3rd. This is a great play for all, especially kids - and of course our own Jess Schneider will be in the cast! See Jenn Schneider for more details or at ctychicago.org!
