Pastor's Blog

This past month has been a whirlwind of activity. The month began with my knighting in New York. I’m still trying to take all that in! I had the honor again to attend the Carpenter’s Union Graduation and offer prayers for the event. It was one of the largest graduations of apprentices. This year I attended the annual Red Mass at Duquesne University to honor Marie Jones, a fellow Pursuer of Peace Pilgrim. I was happy to see a number of our parishioners among the lawyers and judges. I had the extraordinary privilege to represent Bishop Zubik at St. George Maronite Church in Uniontown to welcome the Patriarch of Antioch and of all the East. This was history in the making! This month the members of the Sewickley Area Ministerium met at the Valley Care Association Center in Moon Township. We got to see first hand the facility and the good work they do. It was quite impressive. I continue to be the chair of the ministerium and will participate in the Installation of the new pastor of the Presbyterian Church, Rev. Kevin Long, this Sunday. I am particularly excited about the involvement amongst our parishioners at the Center of Hope. Our parish will sponsor one meal a month, and continue to encourage parishioners to consider volunteering time to reach out to others. Our youth ministry program will be involved as well. The Veritas High School Youth Ministry has begun work for Habitat for Humanity. Our St. Vincent de Paul is doing an extraordinary job helping those in need with hours of volunteer work, replenishing our food bank, delivering food and helping families during these economically tough times. Likewise our Knights of Columbus raised $1300 at the rainy Oktoberfest, collected $955 in the Tootsie Roll Drive for McGuire Home and St. Anthony, and collected 13 units of Blood at their blood drive. They are getting ready to begin the winter coat and sweater drive. What is exciting is this is just part of what goes on here at St. James. Sure makes a pastor proud!
