An Opportunity To Help Out!
If you were an altar server as a child or youth, you are in a position to offer a valuable service to your church as an adult altar server in the present. If you do not have that particular experience, you need minimal training to do so. Adult altar servers currently assist the priest at daily Masses and funerals; however, no one expects you to commit to serving every day. Call NAM or St. Michael church office to begin your introduction, or reintroduction, to serving on the altar.
Here's What's Going On...

Wild Goose DVD Series - February 6 through August 21
the Wild Goose is an uncommon name given to the Holy Spirit. If you allow him, the Wild Goose will lead you on an adventure greater than you can imagine. The Spirit will lead you to a place of mercy, healing, peace, and presence. The Holy Spirit has been given to us not as a possession to be tamed or controlled, but rather as a Person that will lead us to the Heart of God. The Wild Goose series will help you experience a deeper relationship with the Person of the Holy Spirit, and as you come to experience God’s presence and power this very same Spirit will transform you and bring you freedom.
The Wild Goose Series is fourteen independent talks on DVD dealing with different experiences of the Holy Spirit. For the most part, each segment stands on its own so you do not have to watch them in any particular order. However, the first three segments give a type of foundation to the others. Even if you can't attend all 14 sessions, it is worthwhile to attend as many as possible.
Please call the rectory at 412 373-0330 ext. 10 to register for this course with your name, phone number and email address, if you have one.
