This weekend, please take time to pray and reflect on the witness of the holy men and women we call saints and whose memory we celebrate throughout the month of November. In the end, the only thing that matters is to be a saint. May we benefit from the example of the saints who’ve gone before us and may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.— Archbishop Charles J. Chaput

For example, “I joined the Knights to give back to my Community and Parish”, John Smith. Please contact Brother Roy at rjcastas [at] verizon [dot] net for more information or if you would like to record a testimonial.
INVITATION TO ALL VETERANS: This Fall, we will be updating the Veterans Display Cases in the hallway and we are inviting all veterans to send us a photo of you along with a brief bio to be included in those cases. As a tribute to all our veterans, this will enable our parish community to see those who have served our nation, whether active or retired, and perhaps to get to know you a little bit better. Photos should be close-up and bios would include years in active service as well as last duty station, last rank as well as any special commendation. Family members are invited to honor their deceased veteran by providing this information, as well. Our goal is to dedicate this new and updated display this coming Veterans Day weekend. Please send your photo and bio to Bill Young, 228 Cog Hill Drive, Honey Brook, PA 19344.
