2015 Lenten Appeal
We have begun the holy season of Lent, a great period of penance and interior renewal in preparation for Easter. True renewal and interior conversion can happen if we are sincere with ourselves and use the spiritual tools of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. In these next forty days, through the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy and hearing God’s Word, Jesus will present Himself to us in all the wonderful simplicity of the Gospel. Your contribution to the Bishop’s Annual Lenten Appeal helps to provide the base of support for the pastoral, education and charitable services that are provided throughout the Diocese of Harrisburg. Please keep in mind that your generous contribution to the Bishop's Annual Lenten Appeal can result in a significant financial benefit for our parish.
A sincere thank you to the Parish Council of Catholic Women, the Parish Knights of Columbus Council, and the Parish Athletic Association for coordinating the receptions after my first Saturday evening Mass and on Sunday after the Installation Mass at 11:15. Your help in hosting the two gatherings was greatly appreciated. And thank you to all those who took time to stop after the Masses to shake a hand and offer a greeting. I look forward to my ministry in the parish and the opportunity to meet many of you in the course of that ministry. May God’s blessings be with you all!!
