Our next monthly hoagie sale will be held on the weekend of March 5/6, at all the churches after all the Masses and also on Saturday morning from 9 – 12 noon in the [HN] hall.  This monthly event has really been a benefit to the parish.

  • Volunteeers - We have been very pleased with the 25 – 30 people who come to help make hoagies.   We are always welcoming new volunteers.  The time commitment is about 2.5 hours (8 – 10:30 am.) Come join us for the socialization, fun and benefit for your parish.
  • Pre-orders - We highly encourage you to preorder your hoagies.  There has been such a demand that we have sold out before the 11:30 mass the last time.  If you pre-order, we will have your wrapped and ready either for Saturday morning or Sunday.  This will also give us a more accurate idea how many to make each month.


Over the past few years, the Diocese of Pittsburgh has been actively putting into place in all of the parishes of the Diocese a program for all those who work or volunteer in our parishes.  The program is called “Protecting God’s Children.”  We here in Duquesne are diligently trying to be in compliance with the requirements as set up by the Diocese.  The program requires that all who volunteer in the parish go through the “Safe Environment for Children Clearance Procedure.” All of our religious education teachers have completed this procedure and are working on all the members of our paid staff. We will now be having all of our Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors and Ushers begin the “clearance procedures.”

Those who volunteer for the church are seen by children as persons who can be trusted.  Therefore, over the next few months, we will be processing our volunteers to meet the Diocesan requirements for the Protection of Children.

  • Folders with information and forms can be picked up at the Holy Name rectory during the week and in the church sacristy on weekends.  We will try to do this in an orderly and timely manner.  We will begin first with Christ the Light of the World Parish and then with St. Joseph.  So, by the time we are one parish, we should all be covered. 
  • Protecting God’s Children’s Workshop:  For the convenience of everyone, we have scheduled this workshop here in Duquesne.  It will be held on Sunday, April 2 beginning at 12:30 pm.  If you plan on attending, call the rectory or send us an email so we might have all the proper materials ready.  This is a great opportunity to “get this requirement over with”  before Easter and before the warm weather approaches.  All Christ the Light of the World Parish and St. Joseph Parish parishioners who minister or volunteer may attend.
  • Questions:  you can contact our Parish Safe Environment Coordinator, Colleen Whitney (412-461-8318) or by e-mail (


One of the members of our parish who works with elderly adults in personal care homes is going to have them send messages on pillows that they craft themselves to send to our adopted Army squadron.  If you would like to donate any “new and unused” white pillow cases, for this cause, please do so by bringing them to church and place them in the containers marked, “Pillows for Patriots” or you can also drop them off at the rectory or you can drop a monetary donation in the collection or mail it to the rectory to help defray the cost of buying the pillow cases.  We want to make sure all 150 soldiers get one.
