Christ’s Life and Love

This weekend we welcome Sister Ellen Anderson from the Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary, an organization that brings Christ’s life and love to people in need.

The sisters do that in Africa, Europe, and in South and Central America through education, health care, social development, pastoral care and rebuilding shattered lives in post-war situations. The sisters have been working in Africa as missionaries for almost a hundred years.

They truly live out the Gospel and we look forward to hearing Sister Ellen at this weekend’s Masses.

Next weekend, the interim Mass/ Confession schedule will be announced for the new parish groupings throughout the diocese. The schedule goes into effect on Oct. 15.

We will announce the new schedule for the St. Alphonsus – St. Alexis parish grouping from the altar and through the bulletin, E-News and website, as well as through posters in the church. We also will send letters with the new schedule to all of our registered parishioners. The Pittsburgh Catholic will include a complete diocesan guide to all interim Mass and confession schedules in its Sept. 13 issue, which will be mailed to parishioners throughout the diocese.

As always, I pray for all of you daily, and I thank you for all of your prayers, love and support!

Yours in Christ,



Fr. Kevin C. Fazio
