WOMEN'S SPIRITUAL FOCUS GROUP

They will be meeting in the Holy Name Hall this Wednesday, July 11 at 6:30 pm.  This group has been wonderfully successful in terms of numbers of women addressing spirituality in their life.  We have a regular turn-out of 50 women.  But also, this group is meeting the needs of the many women of all ages who attend.  Rowena Lynch has been given many gifts by the Lord to lead these group sessions.  So many participants have been so grateful that they have the opportunity to participate.  If you haven’t already, come and give this group a try.  YOU DESERVE IT!!!

GOLF OUTING FINANCIAL REPORT

We would like to announce that the profit from the “Joint Parish Ed Capristo Memorial Golf Outing” this year was $13,179.27.   Each parish will split the profit.  Thanks to everyone who helped make this event successful again this year.

MOBSTERS, MOLLS AND MARINARA

We would like to inform you that we are going to offer a brand new and exciting evening for our parishioners and friends. On Saturday evening, September 22nd in the Holy Name Hall, we will be having “Dinner Theater.”  This mystery dinner theater will include:  dinner and an interactive mystery theater done by a professional company.  You will be welcomed to Vinnie V’s joint, where the hooch is flowing, the flappers are friendly, and murder is on the menu.  Dinner will begin at 6:30 pm.  BYOB.

PROTECTING GOD'S CHILDREN

CCD NEWS

Christ the Light of the World Parish and St. Joseph Parish are again on the “cutting edge.”  In order to meet the need of our growing CCD program and help our busy families for the first time this year beginning in August, we will be offering “online registration.”  We will still be offering “in person” registration for parents who would like to come in and meet with the teachers to discuss this year’s current curriculum or any issues relating to your child.  Look for the announcement in the bulletin with both types of registration dates.  This is an exciting opportunity for you and us.

CHILDREN'S BOOKS FOR SALE

Fr. Jack Nanz (my substitute priest when I am away) is the author of a series of books for children entitled, “Stories for Children of All Ages – Song of a Troubadour and Rainbows on the Wall” I have invited him to make them available to our parishioners the first 2 two weekends in August when he is here in Duquesne.  Donation is $10.00 a book.  We will announce this sale for the next few weeks.

PARISH SHARE PROGRAM UPDATE

We have received $24,503.00 in outright donations and pledge payments towards our goal of $58,628.00 leaving us a balance of $34,125.00 which needs to be paid by December 31, 2012 or we will have to take it out of our parish savings to meet this goal.  We would like to thank the 146 donors who have participated so far. We hope that everyone will consider making a donation.  If we go over our goal the overage remains in the parish free of Diocesan tax.
