A HELPFUL WORD on a DIFFICULT TOPIC ....
Are you or
a loved one faced with serious illness and end-of-life issues? Please
allow us to help. Don't hesitate to call us at
570-788-1997 for the sacrament of Anointing of the Sick. The sooner we
are aware, the sooner our Pastor, Father Jack, can celebrate this
important sacrament with you. The Catechism of the Catholic Church
states that "the Church believes and confesses that among the
seven sacraments there is one especially intended to strengthen those
who are being tried by illness, the Anointing of the Sick." (#1511) Additionally, it "is not a sacrament for those only who are at the
point of death. Hence, as soon as anyone of the faithful begins to be in
danger of death from sickness or old age, the fitting time for him to
receive this sacrament has certainly already arrived." (#1514)

WHAT'S THAT SHED ALL ABOUT ??
Finished your spring cleaning yet? Need more room in
your closet? You'll notice a shed for clothing donations at the edge of the parking lot between the church and rectory. Installed a few months ago by St. Pauly Textile, its a wonderful way to help those in need and a great opportunity to dispose of closet clutter! Simply stop by and drop clothes through the chute. For every 1,000 pounds donated, STJB will receive $40 to help support our St. Vincent de Paul Fund. This is just one of many ways that we as a community can be of service to others.
