Our Saints Peter and Paul ROSARY MAKERS have placed baskets of Rosary Chaplets that are especially dedicated to praying for those suffering from the effects of addiction in the back of church. Please feel free to take one of these Rosaries. Among the prayers for the Chaplet is this beautiful one:
God of mercy, we praise You in the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, who ministered to all who came to Him.
Enfold (name) in your mercy and love, for the restoration of freedom which only You can provide. Strengthen (name) in the work of recovery through the ability to resist temptation. Grant patience, understanding, and love that perseveres, to all who care for those with addiction. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

HOW TO DISPOSE OF EXPIRED MEDICINES?
A local disposal box for expired prescriptions or other medications you may no longer need has been placed in the lobby of the Brighton Twp. and Beaver Police Departments providing a safe and proper means for their disposal. This collection box is being provided by the Beaver Co. District Attorney’s Office as unused medications are often subject to abuse or accidental poisoning and overdoses.
Medications should remain in their original containers. Personal information on the labels should be crossed out, but information about the medication itself should be legible. Gather up those prescription medications, prescription patches, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, medication samples and medications for pets and drop them off for a safe disposal. Open containers of liquids should be completely sealed. (At this time, NO needles, aerosol cans or inhalers are being accepted.)
The parish-based SUBSTANCE ADDICTION MINISTRY (SAM) is a program of the National Catholic Council on Addictions, an affiliate of the U. S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. This ministry, being established in the Diocese of Pittsburgh, is to offer hope, healing and reconciliation to both the afflicted and affected. “Addiction disconnects people: from self, loved ones, and God. SAM is a support ministry that helps people face the challenges that accompany addiction.” (http://NCCAtoday.org).
Saints Peter and Paul SAM meets every first Wednesday of the month at 7:30 pm in Keating Hall.
Before the meeting, the Rosary is prayed at 6:30 pm in the church and then Mass is celebrated at 7 pm.…
MANDATED REPORTER TRAINING
The Diocese of Pittsburgh requires that all volunteers who come in contact with children attend this three-hour workshop detailing reporting mandates which are a vital part of the Church’s efforts to prevent the abuse of children. A list of live classes or on-line classes can be found online at www.diopitt.org. If you have any questions, call Nora at 724-775-4111.
