Around the Parish – March 12, 2023
Congratulations to all of our Confirmation Candidates who received the Sacrament of Confirmation at a special mass on Monday March 6 at Beloved Disciple Church. The mass was a wonderful time for our young adults to be with our Bishop, Lawrence Persico, and other young adults from our Diocese. In this weekend’s bulletin, there are the biographies of each student from our Confirmation Cohort. Again, a very special thank you goes out to Cindy Wilpula and Katlyn Gable for their dedication to our Faith Formation program and to our students.
This week is our Saint Patrick Day Bingo and Bake Sale! Doors open at 6 and Bingo begins at 7! Thank you in advanced to all those who have helped, either by your volunteering at the event, or making all the wonderful baked goods! All baked goods can be dropped off at Gallagher Hall by noon on Friday, March 17.
If you’re looking for a fun way to shed those extra few pounds, try joining the Zumba group! Zumba meets in Gallagher Hall on Tuesdays at 5:30pm, the second and fourth Thursdays at 5:30pm, and Saturday Mornings at 8am. If you have any questions, contact Heather Corvino at (724) 813-3594.
The Easter Basket Raffle is coming up quickly! We currently have 73 lottery tickets, and we are hoping to have 100 tickets total, 50 per basket. If you are able to give a few tickets to help us meet our goal, feel free to place them in the collection basket at mass, mail them to the office, or drop them off at the office Monday through Thursday, 9:00am-3:00pm.
Here’s a few thoughts for your week: Staying positive and faith filled does not mean that you have to be happy all the time. It just means that even on hard days, you know that better days are coming. When everything seems to be going against you, remember that airplanes take off against the wind. The best views in life come after the hardest climbs.
Pax et Bonum, Fr. Andy
