Dennis needs help setting up and tearing down the outdoor part of the flea market.  We begin at 7 am each day and tear down around 1:30 pm.  It takes about 1.5 to 2 hours  of time to set up and tear down.  If you can help in this way, give him a call.  3) Baked Goods: We sell baked goods every day of the sale.  How about baking something for one or both days?   4) Food Items Donations:  every little bit helps.  Can you donate a couple packages of hot dogs;  case of pepsi or water?  How about a bowl of macaroni or potato salad?  Whatever you can do,  goes a long way to helping make this event a success for the parish. If everyone does a little, a lot is accomplished.  If you can participate in this way, call the rectory and let us know how you will help.

HOLY NAME CHURCH & DUQUESNE MILL WORKS CIRCA 1970

Dear Fr. Dennis:  I grew up in East McKeesport and my imagination was always stirred by the mills and railroads of the Mon Valley.  One of my first photography efforts was a night shot of the Duquesne Works using a tripod and hand held light meter.  I made this shot from the back of the Eastland shopping plaza.  I thought you and your parishioners would like to see what Holy Name Church presided over around 1970. The glow of the mill is fascinating and frightening and the lights of Duquesne and West Mifflin provide and interesting counterpoint – but as I studied the photo I realized that Holy Name Church – now part of Christ the Light of the World Parish is indeed the Light of the World – look at the light shining atop the silhouette of the church near the upper right hand corner of the photo (the bright stream of light to the left is Kennedy Ave. The name was aptly chosen for the consolidated parish.  To view this photo, visit the photo gallery.

PROTECTING GOD'S CHILDREN UPDATES

We would like to remind everyone that all ministers and volunteers should be filling out their paperwork for clearances.  If you haven’t done them yet, you can pick up the paperwork at either church rectory.  The next 2 hour workshop for those who haven’t attended, will be here on Sunday, August 28. This will give everyone the chance to get everything done over the summer months.

  • Protecting God’s children workshop:   For those who can’t make the August 28 workshop at CLW, there is one being held at Holy Angels in Hays from 9 – 12 noon on Saturday, June 25.   Call (412-461-6906 x23) to register.
