Welcome Fr. Paul Abernathy!
We are delighted to welcome Fr. Paul Abernathy to our Parish this coming Sunday, March 19th. He should arrive around 12:30/12:45pm as he still has to serve Liturgy at his own Parish that morning. Fr. Paul will speak about the amazing work he is blessed to be a part of in the nearby communities of his Church (located in the Hill District of Pittsburgh).
In addition to the presentation/talk by Fr. Paul, we will serve a Lenten soup/pogača lunch. Please invite your family/friends to this exciting luncheon/presentation on Sunday.
