Church Synod: Earlier this year, Pope Francis announced a worldwide synod to focus on the life and mission of the Church as we move forward together.  The theme for this synod is, “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.”  Rather than simply a meeting of bishops, Pope Francis has asked us, the People of God, to take part in the synod—to “journey together” with our brothers and sisters in Christ along the path of renewal, guided by the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Father has asked that every parish in the Diocese participate in this synod in order to listen to the living voice of the entire People of God.

Our parish will be conducting synodal listening sessions on the following dates: Thursday, December 9 at 6:30 PM, Sunday, January 9 at 12:30 PM, and Tuesday, January 18 at 9:30 AM in De Sales Hall. These sessions will provide an opportunity for every member of our parish community to share our thoughts and feelings, but more importantly to discern how the Holy Spirit is guiding us in our journey together.  Please join us for this important event.

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration: Eucharistic Adoration will take place each Wednesday from 9:00 AM to 6:15 PM (between the Masses) every Wednesday.  Please contact Shirley Kim 304-573-7307  if you would like to commit to praying before Our Lord at a specific time each Wednesday.

Giving Tree Project: The Parish will again sponsor 100 local middle school students to help brighten their Christmas Season through our Giving Tree project.  Your past donations have been very much appreciated!   We have all been living through the most unusual and trying times, making the need even more prominent.   In keeping the health and safety of others in mind, this year we are again asking for only donations of money or gift cards.  The Giving Tree team (Solina Cox and Debbie (Joe) Voloski) will be working with the Raleigh County Board of Education in assisting these children and addressing their need for clothing, shoes, etc.   The goal is to spend at least $125 per child.

Donations can be made immediately, and we will take them through December 12th.   Checks can be made out to the Church and marked “Giving Tree Project.”  Envelopes will be available at the Church to use for your cash donations.  Donations can be mailed to or dropped off at the Parish office, or placed in the collection basket at any Mass.  If you have questions, please contact Debbie Voloski @ 304-222-3340.

We want to again express our gratitude for the wonderful and generous donations to the 2020 Season.  More than 100 local middle school students benefitted from your donations and gifts.

We are immensely grateful to the Parishioners for the continued success of The Giving Tree and thank you in advance for your generosity.
