A Message From Bishop Malesic
As the Lenten season approaches, we are once again a people in need of God's grace. We work on our relationship with God through prayer, almsgiving and fasting. Prayer can be so powerful, especially for those struggling with their faith after such a difficult time in the Church. I want to assure you that I have great hope for the future of our church. Every day, I work to move us forward. But I can only continue to do that with your help. That is why I am asking you to Open Your Heart to Hope.
+ Bishop Edward C. Malesic
A Message from Father Michael
Last summer, our parish lent support to the Penn Trafford Backpacks-To-Go-Program. Through this service, meals were provided to families who would otherwise experience hunger during the summer months. Last year, we provided meals for almost 50 families in our local area. This year, we hope to increase our outreach. Therefore, our refund from the 2019 Diocesan Lenten Appeal will be allocated to support this work. we ask every household in our parish to lend their support to our annual Diocesan Lenten Appeal. The funds raised represent the primary means of support through which the diocese aids our parishes, priests and laity in the work of ministry. These funds also enable our parish to better respond to those who call upon us in time of need. If you've not already done so, we ask that you return your Pledge Card in the coming weeks, or donate below.
