This year is the 75th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s famous farewell speech to baseball. The ALS Association of Western PA is sponsoring a “Walk to Defeat ALS” on Saturday, Sept. 6 at Point State Park. Parishioners from Christ the Light of the World and St. Joseph have banded together and started a team to participate in the walk in honor of Fr. Dennis called “Team Fr. Dennis.” This is a great way for us to show our love and support for him as well as to raise funds for research to find a cure. You are invited to join the team as a walker or donor. You can make a donation to a team walker, drop your donation in the collection or mail to the rectory. Our goal is $10,000.00. Let’s knock this one out of the park for Fr. Dennis!
Information: Visit the "Team Fr. Dennis" page on the ALS Website to get involved. There you will find info on how to participate, how to donate, how to be on the team, etc. This event can be fun for everyone — individuals, families, young and old. Any questions, call Aggie Sanker at 412-276-1222.
Fun Time: We want to make this a fun event. We are getting “Team Fr. Dennis” tee shirts printed. If any corporate or business friends would like to sponsor these shirts in full or in part, give us a call.
