REMEMBER IN PRAYERS OF SUPPORT those making their faith journey through RCIA.  Please remember and support in daily prayer Alisha Reed, Emma McGurk-Sowa, Erika Pollak, Terri Pollak, and Dana Pollak. 

OUR SINCERE GRATITUDE:  We would like to express our gratitude for the donation of $400 in memorial gifts made to the parish in loving memory of Helen Getner and $175 made in loving memory of Minnie Lepako.

SUPERBOWL HOAGIE SALE:  Make our Homemade Hoagies the highlight of your
Superbowl Party February 4th Weekend.  We frequently sell out so we encourage you to order
in advance (412-469-0196). This gives us a better idea of how many hoagies to make.  Advance Order Forms are available around the church for you to use, with space to take orders from friends, neighbors and associates. Advance orders should be placed by Monday morning (Jan. 29).  As always, we need volunteers to help build them Saturday February 3rd beginning at 8:00 am in the Holy Name Hall.  It’s great fun and many hands make the work go quickly. 

YEARLY CONTRIBUTION INCOME TAX STATEMENTS: Anyone wishing their 2017 Church Donations for income tax purposes should call the church office.  They will be sent on Fridays each week.

REST IN PEACE       Please remember Mary Ann Stefan who has died and risen to new life in the Lord.

NEW FAMILY EMERGENCY SHELTER IN DUQUESNE
Auberle is opening a new Family Emergency Shelter in Duquesne on Monday. To help provide a safe and comfortable environment for families during their stay at the shelter, they are looking to collect some of the following items:
baby monitors  •  towels  •  wash clothes  •  diapers  •  diaper wipes  •  hygiene products
Please consider donating these items. We will have receptacles in the churches for you to put your donations in. For more information you can contact Erin Rhodes at erinr@auberle.org or 412-673-5856, ext. 1205.

HELP THE HOMELESS

These cold, bitter temperatures have certainly been hard on all of us, and just think…most of us have a home with heat, running water, electricity, and food. These conditions are extremely harsh and dangerous to those who are homeless. Socks are crucial for them as are other items. We are going to put together bags for the homeless and need your help. For the next several weeks, we are going to be asking you to donate whatever items you can. We will have receptacles at the doors for you to place your items in. The items needed are: 

      • refillable water bottles        • socks                • granola bars and cereal bars

      • crackers w/peanut butter or cheese      • tuna & crackers    • fruit snacks & applesauce cups

      • soft packs of Kleenex       • hand wipes  and  chapstick          • toothbrushes and toothpaste

         • mints, cough drops,  gum    • nail clippers & band aids  • $5 gift cards to McDonalds               

If you would like to write notes of encouragement, those would be most welcome as well. If you have children, perhaps having them draw a picture. You never know what will brighten someone’s day.
