Weekly Bulletin Announcements

This year we will be presenting Easter baskets for the children at Mooncrest After-School Program in Moon Township, a ministry of the Felician Sisters. Empty baskets will be in the back of the Church this weekend March 11 & 12 for you to take home and fill. 

Please return them to the Monastery Office by March 26 . 

Easter Flowers envelopes can be found in the vestibule of the Church and in the Monastery Office to remember our loved ones with flowers that will adorn the Church during the Easter season. Envelopes may be placed in the collection basket.

Tomorrow is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Husband of Mary:  What do we really know about Joseph? We know of his royal lineage of the House of David. We know that he risked his own reputation and livelihood by agreeing to marry the pregnant Mary, even when he absolutely knew he was not the father. He was ever obedient to the law, taking Mary to Bethlehem, responsible for her safety and comfort. His peaceful sleep allowed his generous and obedient heart to hear and obey angel voices directing him in the best ways to protect the treasures of Jesus and Mary. He took baby Jesus to the Temple to present him to the Lord according to the Law of Moses. He took his family to Jerusalem every year for Passover, about a 90-mile walking trip in Bible times. Faithful to the law, devout in his faith, loving and generous to his wife and Son: that is St. Joseph as Scripture reveals to us. 

There will be a Diocesan second collection this weekend, March 18/19, for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Domestic Missions, and Black and Native American Missions. Please be generous.
