St. Paul Rosary Alter Society's Annual Trash 'N Treasure Sale


This year the workers and patrons of our Trash ‘n Treasure Sale had the benefit of enjoying our newly air-conditioned hall which was paid for with the proceeds of previous sales, as well as from the refund of our Diocesan Lenten Appeal. Many benefitted from this extra convenience – from the dedicated workers who displayed the merchandise… to the patrons who noticed this extra amenity. As always, there are many, many people to thank for our successful venture. Rosary Altar Society, along with their families a nd friends, spent 6 weeks of diligent collecting, cleaning, testing, and displaying of all of the products. Their work paid off with the usual, beautifully organized tables of wares. Needed through the days of the sale were the volunteers who wrapped items, tallied the purchases, re-organized the shelves, and helped patrons to the cars…we appreciate all of your efforts. This year, YOU, the Parishioners, came through with so many additional generous contributions. A flyer in the bulletin indicated that we needed help with the cost of the actual food items and supplies…..and your contributions exceeded our needs! All of the food costs were paid for with these donations. We also thank our talented bakers who provided baked goods. Also needing recognition are those individuals, families, friends, and organizations who donated creative and generous baskets for our raffle--the baskets were thoughtful and outstanding. This year we

managed to have the highest financial return in our history of these sales – we grossed over $31,600. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this tremendous effort by all. This year we would like to single out a parishioner whose talents impact the sale every year in a huge way – and she is Pat Shields. Pat spends a lot of time ordering food, purchasing food and supplies, preparing food, and keeping the kitchen running smoothly— a formidable task when working with large groups of people. Pat, and all of her kitchen staff are monumental to this event. So thank you, Pat, and to each and every one of you – the parishioners, families, friends, and patrons who made 2016’s Trash ‘n Treasure another great accomplishment for Saint Paul Parish. To these words of thanks Father Lawrence adds his own words of appreciation... “I would like to add my personal thanks to the members of the St. Paul Rosary Altar Society and those who helped them in both preparing and managing the annual

Trash and Treasure Sale. I am always so impressed by the hard work and dedication done in order to make this sale a success. Again, this has already been noted as a great success. Thanks again and may God Bless you for your support to our Parish of St. Paul.”

Pope Francis opens the Door of Mercy

Bishop Malesic announces

Year of Mercy plans in diocese

December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016

In communion with him, and by his request every Diocese opens their Door of Mercy on the 3rd Sunday of Advent 2015. Below is an announcement from the Diocese of Greensburg regarding the Door of Mercy. Pope Francis Opens The Doors of Mercy! The Most Reverend Edward Malesic, Bishop of Greensburg, has designated five Churches of Pilgrimage in the Diocese of Greensburg, that will have Doors of Mercy for the Jubilee Year, in which the faithful can gain a plenary indulgence. The five Churches of Pilgrimage are:

To gain the plenary indulgence, the faithful are called to make a brief pilgrimage to one of the Churches of Pilgrimage, pass through the Holy Year Door, participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation at another time after passing through the Door of Mercy, and attend a celebration of the Holy Eucharist with a reflection on mercy. It will be necessary that these sacraments be accompanied by the profession of faith and prayers for the intentions of the Holy Father.


Year of Mercy Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,

and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
“If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
In order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
and restore sight to the blind. 
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of
Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
