I Am A Church Member
Extra copies of “I Am a Church Member” are available to those who did not receive a copy. This is a gift from our parish’s Mission & Evangelism Fund and the book was used at the recent National Mission & Evangelism Workshop. It is a must read for all parishioners and a wonderful book to share with family and friends.

HAPPY 100TH BIRTHDAY
Mrs. Helen Popovic
The family of Mrs. Popovic is cordially inviting everyone to a special brunch celebrating her 100th birthday. The celebration and fellowship will be held immediately following the 9:00 AM Mass in the parish hall.

Sister Parishes ALL SAINTS, Carnegie
and SACRED HEART OF JESUS, Canonsburg are also celebrating 100th Anniversaries this week.

International Village

The McKeesport International Village is underway.  Holy Family Parish has been a participant since its inception and has a financial benefit to our parish. We will be in desperate need of volunteers for the village.  Food transportation and dish washers for this year’s village is a volunteer priority along with the daily food prep and cooking. All ages are welcomed to help. Please mark your calendars and support your parish with your presence.

       Confirmation
Confirmation is set for Sunday, October 21st.  Adults who have not been confirmed are asked to contact Fr. Bruce.  Adult Confirmation classes will begin in September.  Confirmation is the completion of Baptism and this sacrament is very important to be fulfilled.

Parish Census Forms
Please return the census form that was sent out with the Easter mailing.  We are trying to update all our files with accurate data and parish membership.  The forms can be placed in the collection plate or mailed to the parish office.

The Polish Bard
Efforts are being made to reorganize the Bard.  If you would like to sing and join, contact Wendy Blotzer @412.203.1747.  The Bard sings at diocesan events that are held.        
                

ORGAN FUND

We are getting close to our goal in paying off our loan.  We have less than $10,000.00 in payment.  Help us by paying off this loan by the end of the year.

Parish Ministries

We have various parish ministries that can utilize your spiritual gifts ranging from serving at the altar, lecturing, choir and parish organizations.  As a Church and Family, our purpose is to help bring all to Christ and His salvation.  To achieve this goal, we need 100% participation at worship and parish functions.  There are so many unchurched people looking for answers in life, help them find their answers by inviting them to worship.

Anyone interested in participating in a parish ministry such as Music, Greeters, Ushers, Altar Care, Lectors, Mission & Evangelism,
Acolyte or Sacristan are encouraged to speak to Fr. Bruce.
You will be fulfilling Christ’s commission to his disciples.

Prayer Blankets & Prayer Shawls


Our Women Society and our Youth are in the process of making Prayer Blankets/Shawls for our parish members during this Lenten Season.  They will be assembling the blankets after the 9 AM Mass, Sunday Feb. 22nd. This project is open to anyone interested in helping in the production of the blankets/shawls. You don’t have to belong to the societies. If you know of someone who would like a blanket/shawl, please place their names on the special request form which is on the bulletin board in the Narthex. These special gifts will be made for our elderly, shut-in, and those with medical health problems.  This faith driven program is a way of assurance to the recipients that they are loved and part of our parish family.
