One Parish, One Book
Join fellow parishioners this summer in reading The Second Greatest Story Ever Told; Now is the Time of Mercy by Fr. Michael Gaitley, an inspirational book that has received superb reviews.
Books are available for sale after each weekend Mass through July for $10, and can be purchased through the parish office. The ebook is also available through Amazon.
Opportunities to discuss the book will be available in the fall. This is a unique opportunity to participate in an enriching, parish wide conversation about the message of Divine Mercy as revealed to St. Margaret Mary, St. Faustina, St. John Paul the Great, and others.
2016 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.
The Lord said to her in reply, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her." - Lk 10:41-42
