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.

Food Bank February 25th & 26th
Next weekend, February 25 & 26, the last weekend of the month, is Food Bank Weekend at both Churches. As you know, this collection benefits those of our neighbors who, through no fault of their own, are less fortunate. The food collected at NAM will benefit Crossroads Food Pantry of Monroeville and the food collected at St. Michael will benefit Pitcairn Food Pantry. Please deposit your non-perishable food donations in the main vestibule of either church. Thank you for your generosity.
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.

Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLOW)
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD (CLOW) is in need of volunteers to share the Word of the Lord with the children of our Parish during the 11:00 Mass. The Leader and the children leave the church before the Liturgy of the Word begins and congregate in DeLuca Hall to break open the Word of God. The schedule is done in two to three month intervals. The leaders are usually scheduled once a month as long as we have enough volunteers to rotate. Please consider sharing your faith with our 4 year old to 1st graders during the Mass. If interested please contact Cindy Capell who is in charge of the scheduling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
