The Epiphany of Our Lord

“If we wish to serve God and

love our neighbor well, we must

manifest our joy in the service we

render to Him and them.

Let us open wide our hearts.

It is a joy which invites us.

Press forward and fear nothing!"

~Saint Katharine Drexel

Saint Katharine Drexel Parish • January 3, 2021 Page 4

Dear Friends in Christ:

Happy New Year! As we come to Mass this weekend, we celebrate

the Solemnity of the Epiphany of Our Lord. This solemnity shows us that Jesus has come among us for all people of all times. The Gospel at Mass from Saint Matthew tells us: “Magi from the East arrived in Jerusalem, saying: ‘Where is the newborn King of the Jews? We saw his star at its rising and have come to do him homage.”

When the Magi came from the East, it became clear that the mission of the Christ child was to spread far beyond the borders of Bethlehem, far beyond the reach of the Hebrew people – this Child had come for everyone. By the guidance of a star, the Magi were led to Jesus. By following the bright light of the star, they came to God’s own Son. Finding Jesus, the Scriptures remind us: the Magi worshipped, laying before the Lord the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The feast we celebrate today invites us to reflect on our own life’s journey and those whom we look to for advice and counsel, those “stars” if you will who are for us role models, especially in our lives of faith. As we consider those people who

have played a vital role in our lives, there is yet a more challenging question we must ask: for whom are we role models in faith? For whom are we guiding lights? And where are we leading those trusting souls who see the light of Christ in us? People look to us for example, for leadership, for support as they journey through this life, especially in such uncertain times that we face with the Covid-19 pandemic. There are people on the road behind us following faithfully, trusting that we are bound to find Christ just as were the Magi. Those following in our

footsteps believe that we are in search of the very best that life can offer, something that can only be found in God and God alone.

Like the Magi, we too have been given the eyes of faith to keep us on course as we follow Christ the Light in our lives. We are called to be the wise women and men of our times, bringing to others Christ our Savior and Redeemer in our daily living.

Like the star that guided the Magi to Jesus, may our lives shine bright with faith in Christ and lead others to the Lord through his Church.

“Today the Magi gaze in deep wonder at what they see: heaven on earth, earth in heaven, man in God, God in man,

one whom the whole universe cannot contain now enclosed in a tiny body. As they look, they believe and do not question,

as their symbolic gifts bear witness:

incense for God, gold for a king, myrrh for one who is to die.”

~Saint Peter Chrysologus~

Wishing you all of the continued blessings of this glorious season of Christmas and

a New Year of God’s grace and peace!

Covid-19 Safety Reminders

With an abundance of joy and gratitude the Diocese of Pittsburgh has been able to open many churches for prayer, Masses, and other Sacramental services. As you can imagine, it is a massive, ongoing effort to allow people to gather while doing everything in our power to protect everyone’s health.

We need to work together, and act with each other’s health and safety in mind if we are to continue keeping our churches open for worship.

As a reminder, Bishop David Zubik has suspended the obligation to attend Mass until further notice. If you are in a vulnerable population and/or have an underlying health condition, please approach the celebration of Holy Mass with charity and love for our clergy and faith community by following all safety protocols including:

 Staying home if you are not feeling well

 Mandatory mask-wearing at Mass. If you have a medical exemption from the Governor’s Order, please provide a copy to the parish so that it may be recorded and honored by those who are working to maintain a safe space for all

 Sanitize your hands upon entering and exiting the church

 Sitting in designated pews and respecting social distancing of six feet or more unless you are one family unit living in the same household

 Refraining from congregating before or after Mass in the church building and parking lot

 Follow all the protocols to receive Holy Communion as directed at Mass

Church Support During Covid-19

As the world continues the battle with the Coronavirus, our parish needs your continued financial support. There are several options for you to consider using to support our parish during these unprecedented times:

1. If you are coming to weekend Mass, drop your offertory envelopes into the baskets located at the base of the sanctuary.

2. You can use the U.S. Mail to mail your offertory envelopes to the parish administration center.

3. You can drop off your offertory envelopes at the parish administration center during business hours or deposit the offertory envelopes into the mailbox at the administration center main entrance. 4. You can donate online by going to the parish website: katharinedrexelpgh.org and follow the directions. If you have any questions, contact the parish office: 724-209-1370, extension 404.

We are very grateful for your generous support. Please know of continued prayers for you and your loved ones!

Annual Diocesan Parish Share Campaign for 2020 Drawing to a Close

Our annual Parish Share Campaign which began March 1st for the current 2020 calendar year will soon draw to a close. The Parish Share Program supports the needs of older adults and the less fortunate: Catholic Charities, Roselia Center and Mon Valley Social Services are among the many social programs that receive support through Parish Share. In addition, your contribution provides a vital role in helping more than 85,000 young Catholics receive a firm grounding in their faith through parish based religious education programs as well as through campus and youth ministry, helping to bolster the spiritual development of young adult Catholics. Supporting Parish Share promotes new vocations to the priesthood and religious life, provides for the continuing spiritual and educational formation of our current diocesan priests, and the care of retired priests who have given their lives in service to us. Parish Share also helps in educating parishioners on pro-life issues, counseling women and teenagers in crisis, and reaching out to women and men suffering from the trauma of abortion. In all, Parish Share helps parishes achieve things they cannot do on their own. Your contribution helps to provide our parishes with property planning and insurance expertise, legal and judicial counsel, stewardship and development services, financial and auditing services that allow the parish to serve you better.

The assessment as issued by the Diocese of Pittsburgh for Saint Katharine Drexel Parish in 2020 is $83,086.00.

Our Parish Share assessment for the parish continues to increase as does the cost of living. This year, each household is asked to please consider a pledge of $350.00 to the Parish Share

Program for 2020 that can be payable over the course of the year ($100.00 as the initial gift plus a

monthly gift of $25.00 over the next ten months). You are asked to be as generous as you are able according to your means.

For the 2020 Parish Share Campaign contribution, plan to use the bright pink colored envelope in your monthly offertory envelope packet, or you may place your gift in an envelope and drop it in the regular collection at weekend Masses the churches where you participate in Mass. You may also send it via U.S. mail in care of the administration center office, or you may drop it off at the parish office during regular business hours. May God abundantly bless you for your generosity!

Prayer for God’s Blessing in the New Year

(Early in the year, the household gathers at the table or at the Christmas tree or manger scene.) Our lives are made of days and nights, of seasons and years,

for we are part of a universe of suns and moons and planets. We mark ends and we make beginnings and, in all, we praise God for the grace and mercy that fill our days. Remember us, O God;

from age to age be our comforter. You have given us the wonder of time, blessings in days and nights, seasons and years. Bless your children at the turning of the year and fill the months ahead with the bright hope that is ours in the coming of Christ.

You are our God, living and reigning, forever and ever. ~Amen~

Second Collection on January 16-17, 2021

The second collection on January 16-17, 2021 will be taken for the Saint Anthony School Programs and the DePaul School for Hearing and Speech.

Saint Anthony School Programs

Saint Anthony School Programs offers inclusive education to students ages 5-21 with the primary diagnosis of autism, Down syndrome and other developmental delays. Students attend regular classes based on their individual abilities and supplement their learning with fully-certified special education teachers in their Resource Rooms. The inclusive nature of their program allows the students to develop academically, socially and spiritually in a caring and respectful environment.

Students between the ages of 18-21 attend the vocational program at Duquesne University. At the post-secondary level, students train vocationally at local job sites to learn the functional aspects of jobs as well as proper business attire and appropriate work related behaviors. In addition, they practice independent living skills such as cooking, shopping and cleaning at the Life Skills Training Apartment. It is the goal to provide the education and resources each student needs to live life as independently as possible after graduation.

Saint Anthony School Programs provides hope and encouragement to families in need of their services. As an inclusive program, it allows siblings to attend the same school and interact together as part of the same student body, while meeting the special learning needs of each child. It helps children develop friendships and a deeper love for God, while preparing them to become active and contributing members of the community.

Visit the website: www.stanthonykids.org for additional information.

DePaul School for Hearing and Speech

DePaul School for Hearing and Speech, founded by the Diocese of Pittsburgh and the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill as DePaul Institute, is a State Approved not-for-profit school dedicated to auditory/oral education as well as spiritual and personal development of deaf and hard of hearing children from birth to age 14. Students are offered a full scholarship for academic programs. A comprehensive continuum of clinical and family support programs are also offered free of charge to parents and caregivers.

Auditory/ oral education teaches children to learn to use whatever hearing they have, in combination with lip-reading and contextual clues (speech-reading) and the latest technologies such as cochlear implants and digital hearing aids, to understand and use spoken language. The goal is to give children the necessary academic language skills to fully participate in the speaking and hearing world. Virtually all of the students mainstream to their neighborhood schools during their elementary or middle school years with minimal supports.

DePaul School for Hearing and Speech is the only program of its kind in western Pennsylvania and among just a handful of state providers to offer a center-based educational program for children under the age of three.

Visit the website: www.depaulhearingandspeech.org for more information.

You are invited to be as generous as you are able to the second collection on January

16-17, 2021 which will benefit the Saint Anthony School Programs and the DePaul

School for Hearing and Speech.

**Important note: The amount collected for Saint Anthony School and De Paul

School will be credited towards our 2020 Parish Share goal. We invite you to be as generous as you are able.**
