Welcome to our Parish Website – Come and visit regularly for updates on Parish Events and information.
“Vocation Cross” Program
Our parish has begun the “Vocation Cross” program. This is an opportunity for families to pray daily for vocations to the religious life and priesthood in their homes.
Is your family interested in participating? If so, please call Rebecca Flynn at the rectory, 456-6256.
The Vocation Cross will be presented at the end of Mass. Along with the cross, suggested prayers will be given. After two weeks, the family who takes the cross home returns the cross to the Church and another family will have the opportunity to take the cross home. This program will be on-going.
A picnic dinner follows the great Mass. Please provide your own table covering and dinner service. Also, we ask that you please bring a dish to share that serves 10-12 people, preferably in a disposable container.
Families with last names beginning with
- A – J : HOT DISH
- K – R: DESSERTS/SNACKS
- S – Z: COLD DISH
Hot dogs, corn, soda, water and coffee will be provided.
Waldameer’s Ride – A – Rama/Water World tickets will be available after the Great Mass.
We need our help – if you would like to volunteer to help with setting up/grilling/serving/cleaning up, please call Rebecca Flynn at 456 -6256.
BECAUSE OF THE GREAT MASS, THERE WILL BE NO REGULAR 8:00 AND 10:00AM Masses at the church on August 10th. THERE WILL BE THE 4:30pm MASS AS USUAL ON SATURDAY.
A Family Perspective
The man in Sunday’s gospel “sold all he had” for the treasure he found. Family relationships are “treasures” and demand our total personal investment. Invest yourself in the “treasure” of your family.
Diocesan Anniversary Celebrations
The 2014 Diocesan Anniversary Celebrations for couples celebrating 25, 50, 60 or more years of marriage in 2014 will be held in two locations:
Our Lady of Peace Parish on Sunday, August 3rd at 1:30pm and St. Boniface Parish in Kersey on Sunday, August 10th at 2PM. (please note the time difference).
Bishop Persico will preside at the Erie liturgy and Bishop Emeritus Trautman will preside in Kersey. Liturgy will include presentation of scrolls to each anniversary couple. A light reception in the parish social hall will follow. To register, please contact your parish office or visit the diocesan website: www.eriercd.org/bulletins.asp. (deadline for reservations for Erie is July 25th)
Don’t Forget Your Gift Certificates!
Pick them up after Mass on the weekends, or stop by the Parish office during the week and purchase a few. The more you buy the more you help our Parish.
If you are moving or changing your phone number or email address, please let the parish office know. You can do this by mailing a note, phoning, emailing or dropping a note in the collection basket. To our “snow birds” you too need to let us know when you are leaving and when you are returning so that we can hold your mailings. If you are going to a nursing home or assisted living center or are in the hospital, call so we can keep our records updated and we can visit. We depend on our parishioners to help keep our records current. Thank you for your help. Any questions, call Mary Ann at 456-6256.
