Two Churches - One Community

Housekeeping Notes...

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.

Announcements

Flea Market

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 ptoohill@gmail.com with any questions. Storage is available for large items and furniture thanks to Easy Mini Storage and Rent-A-space, our faithful sponsers.

 

Food Bank Weekend

Next weekend, June 27 & 28, 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 non-perishable food donations in the main vestibule of either church. Thank you for your generosity.

 

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.

 

QUO VADIS DAYS

The words, “Quo Vadis” is Latin for “Where are you going?” This was asked by the apostles of Jesus, to which he replied, “Come and see.” This is a four-day camp on July 12-15, 2015 at the Bishop Connare Center in Greensburg where young men entering/in/or just graduating from high school get the opportunity to come together for prayer, tons of fun, and solid brotherhood. The basic structure of QVD is prayer/talks/discussion in the morning and games (indoor and outdoor) in the afternoons. In the evenings, there will be cookouts, some more time for prayer, and then more games. The point is to create a fun environment where the young men who come can have a chance to meet a bunch of different priests and seminarians, learn to pray the Liturgy of the Hours, and begin to be comfortable asking the question about a priestly vocation. It’s been an incredible tool for increasing interest in vocations to the priesthood in Harrisburg, Arlington, (VA), DC and a lot of other dioceses across the country. Please pray for the success of Quo Vadis Days and ask a young man you know to consider attending this four-day camp. You never know . . . one day he could become a priest! See the flyer in today’s bulletin! More information can be learned at pghpriest.com.
