Around the Parish – March 5, 2023
We are still in need of lottery tickets for our baskets for the Easter Basket raffle. You can drop them in the collection basket, mail them to the office, or drop them off at the office Monday through Thursday 9a-3p. Thank you again for your support and help!
Mentioning the Easter Basket raffle, don’t forget to turn in your tickets! There is still time, but, as we all know, time moves fast! The drawing for the baskets will be on Palm Sunday after the 11a mass. There is only one bucket that we pull from, so you have a chance to enter in for all the baskets at once!
Our neighbors at Saint Anthony’s Church are having their Easter Bread Sale. Options are Plain Bread: $7, Raisin Bread: $8, Plain Pogach: $5. To place an order, call either Launa: 724-342-2489 or Linda: 724-866-7488. Pickup is Tuesday, April 4. Please help support our neighbors, and enjoy some great Easter Bread!
Please do your best to help us reach our Catholic Services Goals for this year. You should have received a letter and response card from me asking for your support. Please prayerfully consider helping to whatever degree you are able. All gifts, no matter the size, count and will be greatly appreciated.
Here’s a few thoughts for your week: Life does not need to be perfect to be wonderful. Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. The finest souls are those who gulped pain and avoided making others taste it. Remember, your direction is more important than your speed. If you see someone without a smile today, give him yours. It is how you deal with failure that will determine how you will achieve success. It takes just as much energy to wish as it does to plan. Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don’t just settle for them.
Pax et Bonum, Fr. Andy
