We welcome to our parish Father Steve Arena as our newest Parochial Vicar. Father Arena is from the Waynesboro area and has just completed his studies for the priesthood at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. It is great to have a young, energetic priest here at Saint Joan of Arc and I know that you welcome him with warmth and kindness.
A special thanks to all who worked and supported our parish festival. This was my first experience of the festival and I was very impressed by the number of volunteers, the organization of a large event such as this and the communal spirit that was obvious each night. The food was delicious, the games were fun, the entertainment very good and the Bingo was cheap (I won the second game of the festival…$3.75…but put it right back into the following games and never won again!) I am so glad that our parish has an old fashioned festival like this. It is a good thing to come together as parish and community in a spirit of comradery and fellowship. God bless to all who made it a success (and I don’t mean just financially!).
