As Father announced last weekend, we are hoping to form a Parish Nursery where our little ones, age several months to 4 years of age, would be able to attend while their parents are at Holy Mass.
We are in need of volunteers for this new ministry! If you love children, and would be willing to offer one weekend a month to assist us, please call or email Father Tcheou, 717-653-4903, or email@example.com. There will be a required training for this ministry, and clearances from the Diocese must be obtained prior to working with the children.

Pilgrim Statue-Important Notice -
The United States Bishops have recently received notification from the “World Apostolate of Fatima, USA” that there is another organization purporting to be touring the World Famous “International Pilgrim Virgin Statue of Our Lady of Fatima”.
The name of this organization that is misrepresenting itself is the “International Pilgrim Virgin Statue Foundation” (Sometimes referred to as “The Pilgrim Virgin Statue Committee.”). The names connected with this organization are Carl and Rosemarie Malburg.
If you receive a request, or your Knights of Columbus receives one, please decline the offer and contact the Vicar General’s Office at the Diocese. Thank you for your attention to preventing confusion on the part of our Faithful.
"Be An Angel Every Second" -
The second weekend of the month is the Guardian Angels' monthly "collection" of grocery gift cards and cash donations for MMOC parishioners in need.
Please know your generous donation will make a huge difference to those in need.
You may place your donations (marked for Guardian Angels) in the collection basket or in the Angel Outreach box in the Narthex. Thank you and may Our Lord bless you abundantly.
contact Marnie Bowers or Ginny Emmons.

IDEAS FOR WRITING LETTERS
A message from you can mean the world to your sponsored friend. Here are some ideas to get you started:
• Offer encouragement and let them know you think about them often.
• Ask about their school, neighborhood and hobbies.
• Tell them what you loved about school or recall a favorite childhood memory.
• Share about your background and family.
• Ask them about their family members, friends and pets.
• Talk about your favorite holiday tradition and ask how they celebrate holidays.
• Tell them what the weather is like where you live.
• Ask about their favorite foods, sports or activities.
Remember, your letter doesn't have to be long. Even a card with a brief note lets your sponsored friend know you care.
