A message from Father John:
Dearly Beloved Parishioners and Friends; just came home from the Crown Plaza Hotel. The 70th Senior and 31st Junior National ACRY Convention is over. What a great weekend. Many thanks to our Sr. & Jr. ACRY for organizing this Convention. Bishop Gregory said, "It was a perfect weekend." He meant the meetings, tour of Valley Forge Park, food, fellowship of young and old, and the Liturgy on Sunday. He knows, because he observes everything. Almost 300 faithful attended the Liturgy and received Communion. Also at Liturgy was Bishop Gregory, and nine priests and Ordination of New Priest, Matt Dutko. The choir was awesome. Today the delegates and guest go home to Florida, Chicago, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, West Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia and across Pennsylvania. So many people were never at Holy Ghost, or were here many years ago, they all said, "What a beautiful Church, the interior is so spiritual and lovely." I agree, don't you? Enjoy this labor day and the week. Don't forget our Family Appreciation Picnic, Sunday, Sept. 14. Liturgy 9:30. and picnic to follow. Beef Hotdogs, Hamburgers, fresh corn on cob, just picked, side dishes, desserts, adult drinks, other drinks, Bingo, Kids Games, Horseshoes, etc....no charge, means free. E-mail Fr. what side dish you will bring, or dessert, or sign up in the vestibule. I will be sitting at my computer all night, waiting to here from you, but I may not be awake. We have so many good, holy, faithful parishioners, too bad other parishioners don't want to be the same, but we are patient, don't be too late. Love Always, Fr. John.
A reminder to all parents: Bring your children to Liturgy during the summer, it is the will of God, and duty of parents. God really loves families who worship together.
No matter what age... Pray every night before you go to sleep; say The Lord's Prayer, and offer thanks to The Lord for many blessings.
Parents: Please make sure your children pray before sleeping.
