Although it is uncertain if the actual celebration can be held, the diocese is still asking for all parishioners to submit their names who will be celebrating their wedding anniversary of 10,25,35,40, 45, 50 or additional years that are a multiple of 5 during 2021. Please notify Fr. Michael or Paula Slemons by NEXT SUNDAY July 25. If a celebration does occur, it will be held on September 12, 2021 at St. Elias Church in Pittsburgh. All jubilarians will receive a certificate.


As we begin assembling the 50th anniversary book, we want to verify that all families have taken their photos for the book. We know with Covid that some families did not have the opportunity to take their family picture, therefore, we are asking any family/parishioner interested to please contact Fr. Michael as soon as possible to set up an appointment.


The next praying of the rosary by the Altar Rosary Society will be Sunday August 1, 2021 @ 8:30 am, prior to 9:00 am Liturgy. All parishioners are invited.

St. Elijah Prophet

The Sanctuary candles will be lit for the entire week for your intentions. The right Sanctuary Candle is for the special intentions of Tillie Chachko. There is no request for the left sanctuary candle.

You give them. chrysostom:

Note carefully the Teacher’s skill. Observe with what discre­tion he draws them toward believing. Observe how deliberately this unfolds. For he did not simply say, “I will feed them.” The deeper signif­icance of that would have not been easily under­stood. So what does he say? “They need not go away; you give them something to eat,”

He did not say “I give them” but “you give them.” For at this point their regard for him was essentially as to a man. They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” At this point Mark adds, “They did not understand the saying, for their heart was hardened.” For they were continuing to crawl like babies. the gos­pel of matthew, homily 49.

Send them away: Cyril of Alexandria:

Let us examine carefully what this sending away of the crowds is all about. Some of those who fol­lowed Christ were afflicted by evil spirits and begged to be delivered from them. Others were afflicted with various sicknesses from which they sought relief. Therefore, because the disci­ples knew that Jesus had only to consider what those who were suffering longed for and it would be accomplished, “they sent them away.” They did this not so much because they thought Jesus’ time was too valuable but because they had a love for the crowds and, as though already having an understanding of pastoral care, they began to care for the people. fragment 175.
