In every diocese in the U.S.A., through the Office of the Propagation of the Faith, religious communities are invited by the diocese to make an appeal and take up a collection for the support of their ministries. This weekend, June 29-30, Sr. Rita Lynch, MHSH, a Mission Helper of the Sacred Heart, from the town of North East, PA will speak at the Masses and share her missionary experience with us.
Sr. Rita is a veteran Missionary who has served in several diocese throughout the United States. She has ministered with people of all ages, 3 to 93, and of all abilities, sharing the Word of God, mentoring, counseling, and supporting those with Special Needs, as well as those in Hospice, and their Families. Currently, Sr. Rita continues her service in family ministry and volunteers with the Autism Society of Northwestern PA. Her talk may also include the experience of her Mission Helper Sisters in Venezuela and Alabama. Thank you in advance for your generosity and prayerful support.
June 29th after the 4:30PM Mass
Our great nation is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. What better way to begin our July 4th celebrations than by praying a rosary? This rosary will lift each state and our government leaders to God for guidance. After this prayer service, the Knights of Columbus will provide a free picnic of grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. (A free will offering will be accepted).

Education – Each one of us, by virtue of our Baptism, is called to bring the Gospel to every man and woman in our parish boundaries and beyond.

Engagement – We actively involve parishioners and non-parishioners to engage in social groups, fundraising societies, nationally and locally recognized Church apostolates, and community building activities.

Innovation – We build on the strengths and traditions of our past, and move forward to find new ways to engage our parishioners in their ever changing needs.

Worship – We focus attention to the highest activities of Christian Life.
