We will once again be sponsoring our parish picnic on Sunday, August 23rd from 1:00 to 5:00 P.M. on the parish grounds. Come for some food, fun and fellowship. As there are no tents available, you are welcome to bring something to help keep you cool: pop-up tents, umbrellas, etc.

Elijah Cup Program
The Elijah Cup Program is sponsored by our Holy Name Society. It is a program of prayer to help increase vocations to the priesthood and religious life in the Church. You would receive the Elijah Cup at Mass, take it home, and offer prayers all week for vocations. A program book is provided. Sign up today.

Registering For Masses
For Masses during the weekdays, there is no need to register. Just sign in when you arrive. For weekend Masses, we are taking reservations so that we can accommodate all who want to attend that Mass. With proper social distancing, we are able to handle over a hundred people in the combined Church, Chapel and Upper Meeting Room before moving into the Hall. So please call the Church at (570-629-0593) if you are planning to attend one of the weekend Masses. If it becomes necessary, we will add an additional Sunday Mass.
With everything being affected by the Corona Virus and the quarantine, we have decided to cancel or postpone the following:
1st Holy Communion. Until October 17th
Knoebel’s Park ……. Cancelled
** Bazaar 2020 ………… Cancelled
** This is a major and necessary fund raiser for the parish. So we are hoping to do a food sale on that weekend and maybe still hold the raffle. More information will be forthcoming as we start to open our Churches.
BAZAAR RAFFLE TICKET DRAWING will be held Sunday August 9th, after the 10:30 A.M. Mass. Make your returns by Saturday August 8th if you want to be eligible for the drawing….. Thank You for your support!
Would you like to remember a loved one or memorialize a special day in your life? If we get enough requests for bricks, a new order will be placed in the Fall so we can get them installed before winter. Don’t wait until the last minute to send in your order.
Confirmation Classes will be held on three consecutive evenings: August 5th ,6th , & 7th from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. These evenings will include a teaching Mass, Retreat and instruction. The children will receive their Confirmation at three separate Masses for which parents will sign up.
This summer’s Bazaar has been canceled. In hopes of maintaining some sense of revenue for the Church, we are planning to hold the Grand Raffle. I know it’s a difficult time, but if you can buy or sell these tickets, it will help support our parish.
