Christmas / New Year’s Brunch
We gathered last Sunday to celebrate Christmas and the New Year with brunch. We have been doing this for a long time, but could not gather last year due to the pandemic. This year was again a wonderful event, with much good food brought by parishioners, the Sharing of the Wafer, and the enjoyment of visiting with each other. We are looking forward to the year ahead, and gathering again next year!
First Holy Communion
First Holy Communion class will resume on Sunday, January 23. For more information, please contact Father Charles.
Extend An Invitation
Many people are searching for a church to be their spiritual home. Why not invite them to worship with us. We may be just what they are looking for!
+Prime Bishop John Swantek
We are saddened by the loss of Prime Bishop John Swantek, the 5th Prime Bishop of our Church, who passed away last week. We extend our deepest condolences to his family. His funeral was held yesterday at St. Stanislaus Cathedral in Scranton, PA, with the Bishops of our Church, clergy, and laity from around the Church participating. Father Charles also participated, as Prime Bishop Swantek was a mentor in his religious formation. Prime Bishop John visited our parish on three occasions, and we have fond memories. He remained active throughout his retirement, and contributed so much knowledge, wisdom, and guidance to our Church.
He will be greatly missed! May He Rest in Peace, Amen
