Morning of Reflection – Liturgical Ministry: The Centering of Parish Life

All ministers are expected to attend. All interested parishioners may attend.

A Morning of Reflection with Special Guest Speaker, Father John Marcucci, will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018, for ALL Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Greeters, Music Ministers, Readers and Ushers.

Father John is well known to us. He served as a parish priest in five parish families of the Diocese of Pittsburgh for 47 years, 16 of those years at St. Mary’s. He now serves many more parish families for the last two years as a retired parish priest, both at Mass and in giving numerous Retreats, Renewals, Advent and Lenten Series and other presentations throughout the area. His talks are always enthusiastically received. While in retirement, he has also been a key consultant for multiple aspects of the On Mission for the Church Alive initiative in the diocese.

The schedule for the morning will be as follows:
• 8:00 am Mass: Father John Marcucci, Presider and Homilist
• 8:45 am – 9:15 am: Continental Breakfast
• 9:15 am – 10:00 am: Keynote Talk with Father John
• 10:00 am – 10:20 am: Question and Answer Time with Father John
• 10:20 am – Dismissal and Individual Breakout Sessions for Ministers

2018 Calendars

The “2018” calendars have been blessed. Those needing a calendar may take as many as they wish for their own personal needs. The calendars have
information for parishioners to keep in touch with our parish life. Please find the calendars in the narthex.

31 Club

The 31 CLUB is a response to the Lord who asks us to pray for an increase in priestly vocations. St. Mary of the Assumption Parish is looking for one hundred people to participate in the 31 Club. In becoming a 31 Club member, you are committing to praying one Rosary, one day a month, on the same date for an increase of Priestly vocations in the Diocese. Please Click here for a form, print it, and return to the rectory.

Mass Intentions:

As per the Diocese of Pittsburgh, in light of the On Mission for The Church Alive! initiative, Mass schedules in parishes around the Diocese of Pittsburgh are subject to change sometime after July 2018. If you have intentions scheduled after July, please be aware that the date, time, or even location are subject to change. Additionally, there is a possibility that the intention might be combined with another intention at the same Mass.

Registration – Always Open!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family?  “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family – not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get monthly envelopes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
