Time and Talent Survey

Our Pastoral Council has comprised an updated Time and Talent Survey.  We are looking for your active participation within the parish. The more hands we have helping, the more we can do and the more responsive the church can be with more voices and ideas being brought forward.   Thank you in advance for your support!

2018 Lenten Appeal

“The commitment that you will make through your gift will touch thousands of lives in ways we may never know. The vocation of marriage and the families of our Diocese will be strengthened through the Office of Family and Respect Life Ministries. Catechists, teachers, and sport coaches will receive training and support through the Office of Evangelization and Catechesis and Sports Ministry; Catholic schools and after-school programs will find their support so that children and young people can grow in the beauty of our Catholic faith. Ministries on college and university campuses will be strengthened and supported so our sons and daughters will know that the Church is still there for them on Campus. A homeless mother and her unborn child will be provided with hope, food, and shelter at Lourdeshouse Maternity Home. The Lenten Appeal enables ministries that individual parishes cannot supply.”

~ Bishop Ronald W. Gainer, Bishop of Harrisburg

Please keep in mind that your generous contribution to the Bishop's Annual Lenten Appeal can result in a significant financial benefit for our parish.
