Parish Directory!

We will be creating a new parish directory with the help of LifeTouch.  A parish directory helps all of us to become better acquainted with the people we worship with by helping us to put names with faces and faces with names!  Please help us by scheduling a sitting for a family or personal portrait to be published in the directory.  Sittings are being scheduled at the Assembly Room for Monday – Thursday, August 6 – 9 and August 27 – 30 from 2 p.m. – 8:40 p.m., Fridays, August 10 and 31 from noon – 6:40 p.m. and Saturdays, August 11 and September 1 from 10 a.m. – 4:40 p.m.  At that time, you will have an opportunity to view the  proofs and choose the portrait for the directory.  You will receive a free 8″x10″ copy of that photograph and a free directory as thank you gifts.  You will also have an opportunity to purchase other portraits or photo items.  To schedule an appointment online, click the button (picture) above  or call Teri Pomerleau at 724-539-8629, ext. 15.
