The Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Crucifix of Christ the High Priest is in the home of Elaine Branson this week. There are still some weeks available to reserve the Crucifix. Call the rectory office for information.
Remember to take a parish bulletin and Pittsburgh Catholic to keep up to date on everything that is happening our parish grouping and the Church.
The second collection next weekend is for Parish Maintenance.
The Book of Remembrance will be displayed in the sanctuary throughout the month of November. Please remember the faithful departed at Mass and in your prayers for the month of November.
Rosalia Parish Family Meetings. This past September, information concerning the financial situation of St. Rosalia Parish was shared at weekend masses. The information presented reflected declining revenue and increasing debt for the parish. As promised at that time, follow-up St. Rosalia Family Meetings have been scheduled for immediately after the masses on Saturday evening, November 23rd and Sunday, November 24th. The Family Meetings will provide the opportunity for parishioners to receive updated information on St. Rosalia Parish finances, and to share ideas on how we can improve our offertory collections, mass participation and our well-being as part of the Greenfield-Hazelwood-Oakland grouping. Father Stubna will be present, along with Bob Cunningham, a member of the finance council and the transition council for our grouping. These meetings will be held in the St. Rosalia Social Hall, with light refreshments provided by the St. Rosalia Fellowship Committee. All members of the St. Rosalia Parish Family are welcome to join us in a positive, respectful and non-judgmental discussion for the good all the faithful and our parish grouping.
The 2020 Mass Book will open in Church on Monday, November 25th at 1:30 p.m. Forms will be available in the Church that morning at 10a.m. The stipend for a Mass is $10. Since we only have 3 Masses per week, we must limit the intentions to one Mass per family. We will also need a phone number for each intention in case there is a change in the Mass schedule for 2020.
