Catholic Sharing Appeal 2017

This past week all parishioners received a mailing from the Diocese of Wheeling presenting the Catholic Sharing Appeal 2017. This annual appeal helps the Diocese to fund ministries such as faith formation, youth ministry, Catholic education and Catholic Charities. Fr. Paul has asked that you prayerfully consider supporting the Appeal. By contributing, you can help spread the merciful presence of the church to our brothers and sisters in Christ across West Virginia. For more information, visit www.dwc.org/csa.

Pope Francis has released his post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation, titled Amoris Laetitia--The Joy of Love. A link to the document on the Vatican website can be found HERE.

New Bulletin Columns

Check out each week's Bulletin for two new columns! Fr. Paul is offering us "Preparation for Sunday Mass" where he is giving us questions based on the Sunday readings. Take time to meditate on these questions and let them grow your participation in your Catholic life. The second column is called "Technology Corner" and will share ways to use your smart phones, tablets and computers to grow your Faith. Please let us know in the Parish Office if you have favorite resources that you'd like to share.
