MID WEEK PRAYER
Every Wednesday at 6:30 PM, we gather in the St. Joseph Chapel at SS. Peter and Paul Church to pray Evening Prayer from the Church’s Liturgy of the Hours. This is a brief (approximately 15-20 minutes) service of psalms, canticles, a scripture reading and intercessions in which we join with the church throughout the world in response to Jesus’ call to pray constantly. Please join us.
WHAT IS A MEMORIAL DONATION?
Many times people wish to have a Mass offered, however, we only have a limited number that can be scheduled during the course of the year. An alternative way of honoring a deceased person is through a MEMORIAL DONATION. The monies collected are used for capital improvements for the parish.
If you would like to give a memorial donation to the Parish, send your wishes in writing along with your donation telling us who the memorial is for, who it’s from and who you would like notified. A card will then be sent to the family.
When you are out of town, you can find Mass times for parishes all over the country via the internet. Log on to www.masstimes.org. This is just one product that the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops is able to provide because of your generous donations to the annual Catholic Communication Campaign.
The 6th Street office of the M & T Bank has asked us to please ask those who park in their parking lot during the 7:15 AM and 11:00 AM Sunday Masses at SS. Peter and Paul Church, to PLEASE NOT BLOCK THE ATM MACHINE. They have received numerous complaints from their customers that the ATM machine is at times, not accessible. PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK THE ATM MACHINE. YOUR CAR COULD BE TOWED!
