Upcoming Bible Studies

Bible Study St. Ann Social Hall 
Wednesdays at 7:00PM beginning May 1st, 2019
No RSVP (you may just come & enjoy)

STUDY TOPIC: Every Sunday at Mass, Catholics around the world hear 3 or 4 passages from the Bible. We end up listening to hundreds of passages from Scripture. Join us weekly as Dr. Brant Pitre takes us for an in-depth Bible study on the Gospel readings, connecting them with the Old Testament reading and Responsorial Psalm for each Sunday Mass.
~ You will learn the meaning of passages, why the various readings were chosen and put together, and how the Old Testament reading points forward to the New Testament and how the New Testa- ment fulfills the Old.
~ Understand the Biblical roots of the Catholic faith and how the readings that are given to us each week are meant to be applied to our daily lives, walking with Christ as Disciples of the Lord.

For other talks by Dr. Brant Pitre, visit our Formed community at: www.theccofgc.formed.org

Saint Matthias Parish

Click here to read Bishop David A. Zubik's "Decree Establishing Saint Matthias Parish."

We are less than a month away from becoming one parish under the name of St. Matthias. It is an exciting time as we look at this Pentecost and the solemn feasts we celebrate during these next weekends, they speak to us of a Church alive in Christ. As with all new beginnings, there is also a passing away of the old. They can seem like small deaths in our lives and the closing of churches can seem that way. For many of us, as my home church will be one to close as well, it is a loss that hurts but as with Christs death the promise is always new life. We need to focus on newness of life. To celebrate the movement from death to life we are scheduling Masses to be said as closing liturgies for the churches that will not be used after the merging to one parish:

Sunday, June 30 at 11:15 am ..... Sacred Heart, Rices Landing

Sunday, July 7 at 2:00 pm........... St. Mary’s Crucible

Sunday, July 14 at 10:30 am....... St. Thomas, Clarksville(Reception to follow at St. Marcellus Social Hall, Jefferson)

Sunday, July 21 at 2:00 pm......... Our Lady of Consolation, Nemacolin(Reception to follow at St. Hugh Social Hall, Carmichaels)

These should be celebrations of the life in faith they have provided the people of these areas. Invite those who have been members to come back for the celebrations and include an invitation to continue to pray and celebrate with us as we move forward as a new parish in the churches of St. Hugh, St Ann, St Ignatius and St Marcellus.

As St Matthias was a new apostle to replace Judas, so we are to be the new apostles going out within our new parish inviting people in. May God bless us all!
