Welcome Fr. Sceski
Announcement made at Masses on 5/23 & 5/24:
It is with great pleasure that Fr. Burger announces to the people of St. Joan of Arc Parish that Bishop Gainer is appointing Fr. Al Sceski as the next pastor of St. Joan of Arc Parish. Fr. Sceski was a parochial vicar at Good Shepherd Parish in Camp Hill before being appointed as Campus Minister at Bloomsburg University. After serving as Campus Minister at Bloomsburg, he was appointed Pastor of Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Parish in Elysburg. Fr. Sceski is from Danville PA and is a wonderful priest and pastor. I know that he will serve you well, so please join me in welcoming him to St. Joan of Arc.

Do Not Be Afraid
The Festival's Game Committee is looking for donations of the following:
• Brand New Stuffed Animals – Please note that they need to have tags on them. We will NOT be accepting “slightly used” stuffed animals. If each parishioner donates one stuffed animal, we will be all set for the festival!
• Collections of Beanie Babies – This is a great way to get a tax write-off, help the church AND clean out your house!
• Gift Certificates to Oriental Trading
• Unopened Kids Meal Toys
• Booth Sponsors – If you or anyone you know has a business that doesn’t already donate to the Festival and wants to sponsor a game booth, please contact Lexi Horstman at (717) 439-4225.
If you have a soft spot for our youth ministry, or even youth in general, there is an opportunity to help support the up coming mission trip and ensure each of the teens that want to participate will have the opportunity. We are only about $500 away from what is needed.
