Your generosity on World Mission Sunday supports the work of priests, religious and lay leaders in the Missions who share our faith with those most in need. This year, we can even “chat” with our chief missionary, Pope Francis, and learn more about his missions and missionaries. Learn more at ChatWithThePope.org. Chat-Pray-Give this World Mission Sunday.

Preparation for the reception of the sacraments: Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation, is a two-year process. If your child is in 1st or 7th grade,  and they plan to receive the sacraments next year, they must attend CCD classes this year. Please be sure they are registered! Call Jamie with any questions at 724-775-4111.

LITURGY  OF  THE  WORD  FOR  CHILDREN  is looking for more volunteers. We would like to keep the program going at the 9:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Masses.

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. Police Department 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.)
