•     Parishioner Participation:  The attached flyer outlines the many ways all parishioners are invited to participate.  Your participation is vital for the outings success, as well as keeping our parishes viable.
•      All Cash Raffle:  All parishioners were mailed (4) four raffle tickets.  The number will be based on the 7pm PA Lottery “Pick 4” on June 18, 2018.  Each ticket has 2 possible winning numbers.  Donation is $2.00. The winning ticket will get $1,000.00; the number above and below will receive $250.00.  BONUS PRIZE:  If one of the three winning tickets hits again on July 4, 2018, we will give a $10,000.00 cash prize.  Great Father’s Day gift idea.

****** SUMMER FLEA MARKET CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS ******

Looking for a chance to get out of the house for a few hours?  A chance to do something to make a difference?  This is it! We've lost several of our dedicated volunteers this past year to death or illness, and are in great need of new volunteers, especially for drop-off days June 11 to July 2, to help with receiving, sorting and tagging items.

The hours are short (9-noon Monday thru Friday and 9-11am weekends.)  You can work a few hours, a few days, or a day or two each week – or whatever suits your schedule.  It's a great opportunity to meet other parishioners and spend some time getting to know them.  And it's a great way to help your parish with a fun and interesting fund-raising tradition!  If you can help any or all days call Debbi Lesko 412-694-6149 or the church office 412-469-0196.

STUFFED PEPPER DINNER:  Holy Trinity invites you to come and enjoy a delicious home made stuffed pepper dinner next Sunday, May 20 from noon to 5:00pm.  Bring the family!  Adults $9.00, Children $5.00.
