Support local children with cancer by getting your Christmas presents wrapped by Bishop McDevitt Elves on December 8 & 22 from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm in the St. Joseph Center. For a free-will offering, you will get a break from the holiday madness! The McDevitt Mini-Thon supports the Four Diamonds Foundation at Penn State Children’s Hospital.
Bring your loose change to support the McDevitt Mini-Thon. Canners will be on-site after morning Masses on December 8 & 22 to collect donations.
The Christmas Giving Tree Program, sponsored by the St. Vincent de Paul Society, is underway! St. Joan of Arc parishioners have been very generous in the past in creating a blessed Christmas for our neighbors in need!
Trees are decorated with ornaments that list recipients and suggested gifts will be placed in the church on Saturday, November 30 and will remain until December 13. If all ornaments are taken before December 13 and you have not gotten one, you can make a donation to the St. Vincent de Paul Society or the Hershey Food Bank and bring it to the cafeteria during gift collection times.
Gifts and donations will be collected in the cafeteria before and after Masses on the weekend of December 14 (5:00 pm Mass only) and until 12:30 pm on Sunday, December 15. Gifts will be distributed to local families in need. Thank you for your continued support.
This past week, the priests of the diocese had a “Clergy Day” at the diocesan center. Once or twice a year, we get together and receive updates on issues that pertain to our ministry in the parish. Most of the morning this past time was spent on learning about the Permanent Diaconate in our diocese. As you know (I hope you know!), Joe Gusherowski from our parish is scheduled to be ordained a deacon in June of 2020. The amount of academic work that Joe has done these past four years is really unbelievable. The theological and pastoral training he is getting is outstanding. When Joe is ordained a deacon (Deo volente or “God willing”), he will join with the other deacons in the diocese in serving the local Church. I hope that Joe will be assigned to our parish (assignments are based on need). He will join Deacon Mortel in serving in the parish. I am truly grateful for Deacon Mortel’s ministry and friendship and wisdom since my coming here as pastor. Sometimes we forget to thank the wives of our deacons and deacons-to-be. Cecile Mortel is a wonderful support to Rod, and to the parish, and to me. For this I am very grateful. Rhonda Gusherowski, Joe’s wife, has been supporting Joe through these years of training and I thank her for her goodness as well. Ordinations are special moments in the life of a parish. Keep praying for Joe Gusherowski and Rhonda as he comes down the “homestretch” toward diaconate. And keep praying for Rod and Cecile Mortel as well!
