Mass Stipends – The customary stipend for a Mass is $10.  On occasion we receive Mass requests with larger stipends.  Please note that from now on whatever is given in excess of the customary $10 will go directly to the Church, rather than the priest offering that particular Mass.

Young Adult Group – Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 11th.  We will have a get-together beginning at 5:30 open to all young adults, single and married, ages 19 – 35.  The evening will consist of a Rosary, short talk by one of the priests, and time for snacks and to socialize.  For more information contact Brittany Stewart at 717 – 571 – 6453 or bvasilak816@gmail.com

St. Tarcisius Meeting – Our next St. Tarcisius Meeting is Saturday, June 4th at 5:00pm.  The group is for children ages 5 – 12 and meets monthly in order to train the children to meditate.  Each meeting includes a short, priest led meditation, the rosary, and a potluck dinner.  Meetings are the 1st Saturday of the month from 5-7pm.  We gather in a different host family’s home each month.  Non-parishioners are welcome to join us.  For information concerning our June meeting please contact Jill Lear at SaintTarcisiusGroup@MaterDeiPA.com

Survey — Rosary after 10AM Mass – With 2017 being the 100th anniversary of the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to the children of Fatima and with the enemy ships massing in the harbor, we need to answer the call of our dear Mother to pray her rosary.  If you would be interested in joining us for the Rosary following the 10am Mass on Sundays please send an email to disantoa@centurylink.net.  We will be offering the remaining two sets of mysteries so that our Community offers the complete 15 decades each Sunday.  Remember, a Plenary Indulgence is offered by the Church when a five decade rosary is prayed before the Blessed Sacrament (See #17 Manual of Indulgences).
