#SETHSTRONG FUNDRAISER

We kicked off the fundraiser event for Seth Budai, who is a lifelong member and participant in both of our parishes. He has developed a rare form of cancer near the nerves next to his spine the size of a baseball.  He needs one year of chemo/radiation.  He will have to leave his teaching job and may have his medical benefits cut.  The proceeds from this event will go towards his medical expenses.

  • Date/Time/Place:  Saturday, October 18, 2014 – Duquesne Annex Fire Hall, West Mifflin.  6:30 – 10:30 pm. Only 250 tickets to be sold.  Entertainment – Judi Figel Trio.
  • Tickets are SOLD OUT. All the tickets are gone and we have begun a “waiting list.”  Some people have reserved tickets but have yet to pay for them.  All tickets must be paid for by October 10 or they will be sold and distributed to those on the waiting list.

IS GOD CALLING YOU TO BECOME A CATHOLIC?

Have you thought about the fact that God may be calling you to become a catholic?  Have you been searching for spirituality or meaning in  your life?  To help find the answers to these questions, you may want to consider the“Process of Christian Initiation.”

  • Time of Inquiry:  A time when you feel a “tug” in your heart that God is gently nudging you in this direction.  This is a time to seek, ask, question and find if this is the right direction for your life.
  • Who is this process for:  If you have never been baptized, or were baptized in another religion other than Catholic, or were baptized Catholic and never received any other sacraments.  Then, this process is for you.
  • When do we meet:  Tuesday evenings beginning in October.  If interested or have any questions, call Fr. Dennis.  We need to have you registered by the end of September
