Advent Penance Services

Jesus awaits us with open arms as a child born to us for our Salvation. So it is in this spirit that we should desire to approach the Sacrament of Reconciliation, preparing and making room for him to dwell this Christmas!

Local Penance Services will be held at 6:30 p.m. on the following evenings in the following churches:

  • Monday, Dec. 12 at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
  • Tuesday, Dec. 13 at Immaculate Conception
  • Wednesday, Dec.14 at Saint Edward, Herminie

Giving Tree

We will be sponsoring our annual Giving Tree project to help families of our parish purchase gifts for their children and prepare a Christmas meal for their family. This tree will be displayed in the Hall of Memories starting November 23. On it you will find humble tree ornaments that you may select to purchase Giant Eagle & Walmart gift cards in a variety of denominations. All gifts and monies need to be returned to parish office no later than Monday, December 12.
