    SS. Peter & Paul Parish, a community of

    faith called by God to deepen our relationship

    with Jesus Christ, serves the Lord by sharing

    our time, talent and treasure. As disciples of

    Christ, we are called to bring Jesus Christ to

    ourselves and others: our children, the sick,

    the poor, the fallen away Catholics and those

    who need to hear God’s message of uncondi-

    tional love and forgiveness. SS. Peter & Paul

    Parish is a beacon of light rooted in Jesus

    Christ, passed on to his successor, our Holy

    Father the Pope, and is guided by our local

    bishop to build the Kingdom of God on

    Earth. It is our mission to shine the light of

    Jesus Christ in our world and to spiritually

    enrich the individual members of the parish

    as well as the larger community through

    word, worship, sacrament and service.

    Are you unaware that we who were baptized

    into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?

    We were indeed buried with him through

    baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised

    from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too

    might live in newness of life.

    If then, we have died with Christ, we believe

    that we shall also live with him. Romans 6:3-4, 8 http://www.dioceseofscranton.or/

    St. Mother Teresa of Kalkata

    Spread love everywhere you go;

    first of all in your own home.

    Give love to your children,

    to your wife or husband,

    to a next door neighbor . . .

    Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and

    happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness;

    kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness

    in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

    From Pope Francis

    “I invite you to pray for priests, so that through

    your prayer the Lord might strengthen their

    vocation, comfort them in their ministry, and

    help them always be joyful ministers of the

    Gospel for all people.”

    “ Be patient, kind, and forgiving.”

    Everyone is Aware - The Church needs to be Sanitized Before / After @ Mass

    Every time we celebrate Mass or someone uses the church the church needs to be sanitized. The parish offers a gigantic “Thank You” to all who are helping to sanitize the church before and after each Mass. In essence if this was not being done we would not be able to celebrate the liturgy, Thanks Again! If you would like to assist for a brief time after Mass please volunteer to do so – you can contact Kathie DeWan 570-265- 3231 to express your interest / intentions – tell her the weekend or weekday Mass that is best for you..
