Please keep Fr. Chapin in your thoughts and prayers. He has a long and hard recovery ahead of him.
In light of Father’s injury, Fr. Bill Petro will cover the remaining weekend Masses for the month of January. Fr. Charles Anemelu will cover the weekend Masses for the last two weekends in February.
There will be no weekday Masses during this time period. Angie will reschedule the weekday Mass intentions when Fr. Chapin gets back.
In place of a text or call, all cards can be sent to the office, PO Box 339, Nitro, WV 25143 and we will forward them to Fr. Chapin.
If you have a Sacramental Emergency, please call Fr. Charles Anemelu @ 203-818-2554 or Deacon Dennis Nesser @ 304-549-7830.
Unfortunately, our automated greeting and voicemail module for our Tri-Parish telephone system has failed. Calls can be received when the office is staffed, but the automated greeting does not work, you cannot leave messages, and you cannot access the Mass schedule. The part to fix the phone system has been ordered. We will let you know when the system is repaired. Thank you for helping us to spread the word! If you have any questions, you can email Michele by clicking here.
The Social Concerns Committee is beginning a drive for a local family of 3 that recently lost their jobs. The drive will run from Sunday, January 12 to Sunday, February 2. All donations of non-perishable food and paper products are much appreciated.
If you would like to request a Mass Intention, you can fill out a Mass Intention envelope at the church or you can create an envelope with the following information: who the Mass Intention is for and whether the person is living or deceased, the date you are requesting, your name and a telephone number where you can be reached during the day, and the amount you are offering. You may drop your Mass Intention envelope in the collection basket or sent it to the office. If the date you request is unavailable, your intention will be scheduled for the next open date available unless you request otherwise.
In accordance with the guidelines from the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. Mass stipends are deposited in a separate checking account. If you are writing a check, please make it payable to your respective church. The current suggested level of giving is $20 for a weekend Mass or $10 for a daily Mass. Any offering, however, is most welcome, and if you do not have funds to offer, you are encouraged to still request your Mass Intention.
As you know, we keep a list on the church bulletin of people who are sick and homebound. Please remember these people in your prayers and let us know if you have a special prayer request. Also, please let us know when we need to remove someone from the list.
