Weekly thoughts and announcements from our Pastor, Fr. Tom Lewandowski.

Spirit is a Movin'

The Spirit of the Christmas Season continues in the movement of the Holy Sprit in all of our hearts.  Christ the Light of the World and St. Joseph Parishes have received “person gifts” in the form of 130 new volunteers for various ministries. That is awesome!!!!  The lists are compiled and will be distributed to the proper coordinators of each ministry.  The new volunteers will be contacted within the next few weeks and training workshops will be scheduled.  Thanks for sharing your gifts and talents with us!!!!  “The Spirit is a Movin” in other ways also.  We are making progress on the monument at the grave site of Fr. Dennis due to the hard work of many generous people.  We are looking forward to the “Seven Fishes” radio program where one of our Christmas Eve Masses will be broadcast over KDKA radio.  What a wonderful opportunity to welcome and evangelize!!!!  We are in the planning stages of a parish renewal in the next 18 months.  We are looking at many individuals to lead us.  We are focusing particularly on Steve Angrisano who wrote the song “Go Make A Difference” and does Parish Renewals.  Other news of the “Spirit Is A Movin” at Christ the Light of the World and St. Joseph Parishes will be forthcoming.  What an awesome, powerful, exciting, joyful time it is for all of us here in the Diocese of Duquesne!!!! We are truly blessed by God and his love in the gifts of the Holy Spirit!!!!
