If you have attended here for any length of time and consider this your parish, we would like you to know that in order to become a member, you must register. Those who have grown up in the parish and who are now adults must also register. Unless you are receiving envelopes each month or unless you are a registered on-line giver, you can not receive a tax statement of your donations, nor be eligible for a sponsor’s certificate for baptism, confirmation or as a witness to a wedding. To avoid disappointment, fill out the coupon on page 7 in the bulletin, register on-line, or call the secretary at either church to ask for a membership package.

Evening of Recollection
This coming Wednesday, July 22 at 7:00 PM, Catholics from across our diocese will again join hands in prayer for On Mission for The Church Alive! All are invited to pray in an Evening of Recollection to be held at 12 parishes throughout the diocese. Please choose the best location for you: Holy Family, New Brighton; Holy Sepulcher, Glade Mills, Holy Trinity, Robinson, Immaculate Conception, Washington; Our Lady of Grace, Scott; Our Lady of the Valley, Donora; Sacred Heart, Emsworth; St. Andrew, Center (Bishop Zubik, Presider); St. Bartholomew, Penn Hills; St. Charles Lwanga/ Corpus Christi Church, Pittsburgh/East End; St. Therese of Lisieux, Munhall; St. Wendelin, Carrick. Visit OnMission-ChurchAlive.org to learn more.
Next weekend, July 25 & 26, the last weekend of the month, is Food Bank Weekend at both Churches. As you know, this collection benefits those of our neighbors who, through no fault of their own, are less fortunate. The food collected at NAM will benefit Crossroads Food Pantry of Monroeville and the food collected at St. Michael will benefit Pitcairn Food Pantry. Please deposit your nonperishable
food donations in the main vestibule of either church. Thank you for your generosity.
The Annual Flea Market will be held on Saturday, August 1, and we would like to beat $15,000 this year! In order to achieve this goal, your donations are needed. You may drop them off at DeLuca Hall the week before, from Monday, July 27-Thursday, July 30. Additionally, the help of every school family is essential. This event is so big that it takes 2 weeks of setting up and preparing for it and 2 days to tear it down. You can see why it takes a lot of volunteers to make the Flea Market a success. Come and enjoy the fun and camaraderie of working together and discovering all kinds of treasures. It works really well when the students give their time to such a big money maker for the school. They gain pride for a job well done. Fr. Tom was very discouraged last year when we packed his truck because there were few adult volunteers, but five students saved the day. Volunteers are needed for the two weeks from Friday, July 24 through Wednesday, August 5. These are big jobs and we need lots of people to help set up, transfer items from storage, pack after the flea market is over and to load Fr. Tom’s big rig. School families are asked to please commit at least an hour or more of your time to help your school. We could use the help of the youth and teens of our church community, and students get a free dress-down day when the family donates at least 4 hours. Call Kevin or Patty at 412-372- 5169 or call our cell phones at 412-377-2796 or 412-612 -7061 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Storage is available for large items and furniture thanks to Easy Mini Storage and Rent-A-space, our faithful sponsers.
Pierogi will be for sale from Saturday, June 27 through Sunday, July 26! These are the same pierogi you know and love from our fish fry! They are available by preorder only. The proceeds will go to benefit some of our youth program’s financial needs throughout the year. To
NAM School Golf Outing
The NAM School Golf Outing will be held on Saturday, September 12, at Manor Valley Golf Course, to benefit the NAM School Technology Fund. The event package will include a picnic lunch, golf and cart fees, and a Prime Rib & Home Baked Ham Deluxe buffet. We will even
throw in beverages delivered to you by our beverage cart during your round of golf. There will be prizes for the usual types of skill events. Not a golfer? No problem. Come and join us for a great dinner. More information will be in future bulletins very soon, but for now, put this
on your calendar.
Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
Children's Liturgy of the Word is in need of volunteers to share the Word of the Lord with the children of our Parish during the 11:00 Mass. The Leader and the children leave the church before the Liturgy of the Word begins and congregate in DeLuca Hall to break open the Word of God. Materials are provided prior to your scheduled day. The schedule is done in two to three month intervals. The leaders are usually scheduled once a month as long as we have enough volunteers to rotate. Please consider sharing your faith with our 4 year old to
1st graders during the Mass. If interested please contact Cindy Capell who is in charge of the scheduling at
