Weekly Announcements

January 17, 2016

Coffee and Donuts – All are invited to the Social Hall today after the 10:00AM Masses for coffee and donuts.  Access through door via the side alley.

Christmas Flowers – Christmas flower offering envelopes to help defray the cost of Christmas Flowers are included in your offering envelopes.  Your generosity is appreciated.

FSSP Database – The District House has asked each FSSP apostolate to forward them their database of members so as to assist them in reaching the faithful.  Please be assured that the FSSP does not and will not share this information with any other groups.  We do not “rent” our list to anyone.  We will send them our members list at the end of January.  Therefore, if you would like to be excluded from this list, please contact us at the office before the end of January and we will not include your information.

Epiphany Water – The Epiphany Water which was blessed last Tuesday is available in a container in front of the St. Joseph’s altar and in the normal Holy Water font near the Baptistry.  The exorcisms used for this water are unique to this Epiphany Blessing, and make it a very powerful sacramental against the attacks of Satan.  We ask that our Heavenly Father that “wherever it is sprinkled in Thy name, may devilish infection cease, venomous terror be driven afar.  But let the presence of the Holy Spirit be always with us as we implore Thy Mercy.”

Food for the Needy – The Holy Name Society collects non-perishable food for the Silence of Mary Homes, who then distribute this food to the needy in Harrisburg.  To contribute, please add your gift of food in the straw basket located behind the last pew.  Thank you!

Youth Group – Our next Youth Group event, is January 16, 2016 at 6:00pm.  This month’s meeting will be a game night.  The youth group is open to all young people ages 13 through 18.  For more information contact us at youthgroup@materdeipa.com

2015 IRS Tax Letter – If you would like a 2015 tax letter please contact the office and we will mail you one by the end of January.

New Parish Website – We have a new parish website: MaterDeiPA.com which was launched a few weeks ago.  It was very generously built specifically for and given to us by a professional web designer.  We plan for it to become an integral part of our weekly communications to you, so please become familiar with the site’s layout and features.
