St. John the Baptist PCCW Christmas Bazaar
In these uncertain times of dealing with COVID 19, it is difficult to plan future events – and, in the interest of protecting our supporters, volunteers and the local community, the PCCW has decided to NOT have the annual PCCW Christmas Bazaar, Fish Fry and Raffle this year. We hope that in 2021, the uncertainty we have now will be resolved and we can again hold this event. Thank you for your understanding.

A Year Devoted to St. Joseph: May 1, 2020 – May 1, 2021
On Friday, May 1st, Bishop Callahan began a special year of thanksgiving, petition, and honor to St. Joseph with a special Mass. In case you missed the Mass, you can view it here. In the year ahead, the diocese will offer prayers for his blessings upon our families (Patron Saint of Husbands, Fathers, and Families), our beloved dead (Patron Saint of a Happy Death), and the special needs of our Diocese (Patron Saint of the Universal Church).
As we make our way through the year, several events, prayers and novenas will be available for publication in parish bulletins. It is, of course, painfully obvious for all of us to know that our plans often turn to dust in the midst of possible tragedies and sicknesses that come our way. Please follow the Diocesan website diolc.org/year-of-st-joseph for further information and possible events.
