MARK YOUR CALENDAR:

Mark your calendar for the upcoming Infant Jesus/St. Nicholas church picnic. It will be held on August 15th at Infant Jesus pavilion. More information will be forthcoming. All parishioners and families are welcomed.

50th ANNIVERSAR BOOK:

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.

CELEBRATION OF MARRIAGE:

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 THIS 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.

SANCTUARY CANDLES:

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. The left Sanctuary candle is in memory of +Janice Salcedo from her parents-Bob & Millie Jonda

Covid Obligations – Restrictions Lifted

We have all known and felt the impact of COVID-19 in so many ways as individuals and families, among friends and at work.  It has been a time of hardship and struggle, of separation and isolation.  It has also had an impact on our lives of faith.  Now, as life returns to normalcy in so many ways, it is also time for us to return to Sunday Divine Liturgy.  In our Archeparchy, we will reinstate the obligation to attend the Divine Liturgy in person on Sundays and Holy Days beginning on Sunday, August 15, 2021, the feast of the Dormition of the Theotokos, the Mother of God.  As your Archbishop, I had dispensed you from this obligation in the Spring of 2020 as the developing coronavirus pandemic required people not to assemble in group settings.  Now, with the impact of the pandemic considerably reduced, it is again possible for the faithful to assemble for the Liturgy. 

This obligation, as is always the case, does not apply to those who are seriously ill, have a serious health risk, as well as, those who have significant fear or anxiety of being in a part of large group at this time.  Likewise, the obligation does not apply to those who care for those who cannot attend the Divine Liturgy in person. Those excused from participation in the Divine Liturgy are encouraged to spend time in prayer, meditating on the Death and Resurrection of the Lord, reading the Sacred Scriptures, and uniting themselves to Christ in his worship of the Father of us all.  Those who are legitimately excused are also encouraged to listen to the radio broadcast of the Divine Liturgy, or to participate through one of the computer or face book live stream offerings from one of our churches. The spacing restrictions and special communion practices are also discontinued as of August 15, 2021.
