EXPOSITION AND ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT – Join us EACH Friday morning from 7 AM to 8 AM, followed by the Friday morning mass.

NEW MINISTRY – Due to the increased interest in Eucharistic Adoration at our parish, we would like to offer the opportunity for parishioners to spend more time in quiet prayer in front of the Blessed Sacrament. In addition to Eucharistic Adoration every Friday morning from 7 am to 8 am before morning Mass, we would like to increase the hours on the LAST Friday of each month, from 8:30 am following morning Mass until 3:00 pm. As it is necessary to have at least one person present when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for Adoration, we are looking for volunteers who would like to join the new ministry. Anyone interested in spending a prayerful hour with Our Lord, please contact Regina Civitello at 724-984-1063 for further details.

ALTAR SERVERS NEEDED – We are in need of weekend altar servers, Children AND Adults. It really does allow you to experience the Mass from a different perspective while helping with this important ministry. In Luke, Chapter 6, Verse 38, Jesus says “Give, and it shall be given to you.” Children should contact their Faith Formation teacher and adults may call the office. Thank you.

RCIA : Interested in knowing more about this, or refreshing your knowledge and deepening your experience of your faith? Contact Regina Hopewell at [email protected] with your questions.

EUCHARIST FOR THE HOMEBOUND – If you are aware of a homebound parishioner that would like to receive the Eucharist, please contact the office.

CHILD PROTECTION ACT–Because of our support of the Child Protection Act, it is recommended that a parent always accompany their child to the restroom downstairs in the Social Hall.

CATHOLIC RELIEF SERVICES (CRS) -In Gorkha, Nepal, lush paddy fields offer a stark contrast to the devastation this area experienced in 2015, after a major earthquake struck. Homes were damaged or destroyed, leaving thousands without sufficient shelter. As part of Catholic Relief Services’ Resilient Communities through Vulnerable Earthquake Recovery, or ReCoVER project, reconstruction efforts in Gorkha have been ongoing. 

Through ReCoVER, CRS and its partners have provided technical support and construction materials to aid approximately 6,240 households (more than 31,000 people) affected by the earthquake in rebuilding their lives. Not only does the project assist with reconstruction, but it also offers support with financial planning, home-based livelihoods and savings that help families withstand future shocks. Visit www.crs.org for more information and to see how you can help!
