Upcoming Adult Faith Formation Events

Starting on Wednesday, February 12th at 1:00 PM in Bergan Hall and continuing each week until April 1st, the Adult Faith Formation Team will facilitate an eight week study entitled Psalms for All Seasons, Part II. Each week participants will read specific psalms, view a video which provides insight into the text and discuss their reactions. There is a $16.00 fee to participate, which includes a commentary and study guide. Anyone, who participated in the Psalms, Part I during the fall and wishes to continue will need to purchase only the Study Guide at $8.00. It is not a problem if you did not participate in the first part of the study since the psalms are independent of any story line. Please call the rectory at 570-288-6446 to reserve your spot and indicate if you need the Set $16.00 (both commentary and study guide) or the study guide at $8.00.

Faith Sharing Groups will continue to meet on the second Friday of each month from 6:00 to 8:00 PM in Conlan Hall. Faith is a God-given gift, and this social/spiritual parish activity is one way to open & appreciate this gift. Men and women 18 yrs. of age and older are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. For questions, please call 570-690-7732.



Do you enjoy ironing? Are you a person who strives to perform a task to the very best of your ability? Do you have some time to devote to a very beautiful ministry in our parish?


Our Altar Linen Ministry is in need of several new members. If you are interested in joining us - or even just have questions about the ministry, please call Susan Verdone at 570-288-5376 and leave your name, phone number and a brief message. Your call does not constitute a commitment!


Basically, we have a printed schedule that covers about 2 months at a time, containing the names, phone numbers and dates of each person's responsibility for: picking up soiled linens from the Church Sacristy, laundering, ironing and returning them to the Sacristy - in a timely fashion, so that the drawers are always neat, orderly and well-stocked. How often a person's "turn" occurs depends on how many members we have; e.g. if we have 8 members, each would have a turn every 8 weeks. It is not difficult, but it is a very important ministry and dependability is a must. That said, situations do arise where someone is unable to fulfill their scheduled week and then we call each other to arrange a "switch." Training will be provided for new members.

Please prayerfully consider joining us!
