Marriage preparation for engaged couples in the McKeesport area
will be held on Friday and Saturday, 6 and 7 November 2015. The
event will take place at Saint Robert Bellarmine Church Parish
Center in East McKeesport, from 7 to 9pm on Friday and from 10am
until 3pm on Saturday. A $35 registration fee per couple includes a
meal, refreshment breaks and all materials. Please plan to arrive by
6:45pm on Friday to receive the materials you will need. If you have
any questions please call Mary Gates at 412-667-0029.
Donating loose cash in the offertory collection? Consider using our new multi-purpose envelopes found in the pew hymnal holders. You can designate Maintenance/ Buildings and Grounds or Parish Share. This ensures your donation is non-assessed income and that your donation is credited properly. Thank you!
We recently began our Parish Share Program for 2015. Parish
Share is an effort by every parish to support the operations and
activities of our Church of Pittsburgh. Every parish participates.
Every parish is assessed 17.6% on their income from the previous
fiscal year. Our 2015 assessment is $63,391.00.
Parish Share cards were already mailed to all registered
parishioners. If you did not receive your materials, please contact
our office at 412-678-6275.
We thank all our parishioners for contributing to the Parish Share
program in the past year. And we ask all parishioners to pledge
$40.00 per month to support our efforts for this new year. If
you can offer more, please do so. Every pledge, no matter the
amount, helps us reach our goal.
The benefit of going beyond our assessment is that all
funds we raise above our goal are kept in the parish for us
to use as we need — and these funds are not assessed.
As stewards of God’s many gifts, let us rejoice and
share our gifts with others.
