item needs icing to be completed, include a container of store-bought icing.
Baked goods should be put in the St. Christopher hall freezer.

               SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM THANK YOU


The Slippery Rock Feed My Sheep Food Cupboard would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to the 33 wonderful volunteers who made it possible to deliver 561 meals to the children of our area through the Summer Lunch Program the week of July 8th - 12th.  Because of your generosity and dedication we were able to provide lunches for a full week, enabling children to have nutritional, delicious meals this summer. It couldn’t have happened without you!!

RCIA      INTERESTED IN BECOMING CATHOLIC?


In October our parish Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) journey begins. The RCIA is designed for persons who wish to explore the Catholic faith and/or are considering entering the Church. It is also for those adults who may be baptized Catholic but did not receive some or any of the Sacraments beyond baptism. We will meet weekly October-March and engage in prayerful study and discussion of the person of Christ and the Catholic Faith in preparation for reception of the Sacraments of Baptism,
Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation at the Easter Vigil, 2020.
We welcome all inquirers. If you or someone you know are interested in knowing more, please feel free to contact our RCIA Coordinator, Katie Boosel at education@rockatholic.org or 724-794-2880, or stop in at the Newman Center now or anytime before October.

Our Parishes welcome Matthew

George Snyder and Reed Kieran
Taggart into our faith community
through the Sacrament of Baptism.
May they continue to grow in God’s
love as they share the gift of life God
has given them with family andfriends.
