OUR HOMEMADE HOAGIE SALE

We are restarting our “Homemade Hoagie Sales” beginning the weekend of October 5/6 – Saturday morning and at all the weekend Masses.  They are still a great buy for $5.00.   Sellers:  To make these sales super, we would ask that you consider taking orders at work and taking them in on Monday morning.

Volunteers:  we need lots of help to construct the hoagies within a 3 hour time frame.  Just show up at 8am in the Holy Name Hall and we’ll put you to work.  It is lots of fun and you get to meet some great people.  Orders:  If you would like to pre-order your hoagies, just call the rectory and we will have them ready for you.

LIFE LESSONS FROM OUR CHILDREN

Last week, one of our second grade CCD students, Jack Spence approached me with the idea that he wanted to sell “Rainbow Loom Bracelets”(a new craze lots of kids are making) after Mass outside of church and donate the money to the church.  Not wanting to diminish his enthusiasm, I suggested that he make them and that we would ask any children from the CCD program & parish who wanted to participate and get involved by making them. After speaking with some of the teachers, we are going to ask any children that want to make the Rainbow Loom Bracelets to do so.  You may drop them off at the CCD office on Sunday mornings and then after all the weekend Masses on Nov. 9/10, we will let the kids sell them.  You may purchase a Rainbow Loom Bracelet by giving a donation of any amount. The money donated will go to the Feed the Hungry for Thanksgiving.

2014 MASSES BEING SCHEDULED

We are beginning to schedule. Because of your cooperation in the past, we are now able to schedule 4 Masses a year.  In order to make this process easy, you will need to follow these procedures: 1) You may schedule Mass at any time, in any church on a first come first served basis, 2) Only 2 can be scheduled on a weekend, the other 2 must be scheduled during the week.  3) Only phone calls will be accepted.  No walk – ins at the rectory will be taken. 4) Fr. Dennis will assist you personally.  No other staff member can schedule a Mass.  You may call between 9 am – 3 pm, Monday thru Friday at  412-469-0196.  If he is not available, you can go to voice mail and leave your name and phone number.  He will return your phone call in the order received.  5) When calling have the dates, times, places and intentions ready and available.
