Mass on the Grass

St. Agnes Roman Catholic Parish in North Huntingdon, PA held an outdoor Mass on Sunday August 16.  The 11 a.m. Mass, dubbed the “Mass on the Grass” by the organizers, was held on the St. Agnes campus in the grassy area between Resurrection Hall and the church.  Nearly 300 parishioners, family and friends sat under a tent or in the sunshine on lawn chairs and family blankets celebrating the Mass offered by Monsignor Paul Fitzmaurice, pastor of the parish.  The homily focused a spotlight on learning to live the corporal acts of mercy in our families as Catholics anticipate the first visit of Pope Francis to the United States and the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia this September in this “Year of the Family”.

Student backpacks, teachers, coaches and administrators were blessed and prayers were offered for student learning, safety and family strength during the Mass in preparation for the coming school year.  The Mass, held out of doors, on the grass, and visible and audible to all, also gives a clear nod to the first two encyclicals or circulated letters, from the Pope concerning evangelization and the earth as our home.

St. Agnes Parish at 11400 St. Agnes Lane is located off of Clay Pike near Guffey Road in North Huntingdon and offers daily weekday Mass at 7:30 a.m., Saturday at 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and Sunday at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.  For more information call 724-863-2626 or www.stagneschurch.info.

Announcing New Bishop

          On Friday morning, April 24, 2015, Pope Francis appointed The Very Rev. Edward C. Malesic, J.C.L., a priest of the Diocese of Harrisburg, as the fifth Bishop of the Diocese of Greensburg.

          At the same time the Holy Father accepted Bishop Brandt’s resignation from pastoral governance of the diocese.  Following the procedures as defined by the Canon Law of the Church, that same day the diocesan Board of Consultors met and elected The Most Reverend Lawrence E. Brandt as Administrator of the Diocese of Greensburg.

          Bishop Brandt accepted this election, which took effect immediately.  As Diocesan Administrator, Bishop Brandt is responsible for the care of the Diocese until Bishop-Elect Malesic’s ordination at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral on July 13, 2015.

          You can find further information about this wonderful announcement on the diocesan website, www.dioceseofgreensburg.org and diocesan social media.

          Let us all pray that our new Shepherd, Bishop-Elect Malesic, may be filled with grace, humility, and strength, as he takes up the leadership of the Diocese of Greensburg
