“Helping those in need for over 30 years





Nathan Gargrave & Maria Iracki

November 17, 2012 at

St. Louise de Marillac Church, Pittsburgh, PA




Throughout the month of November we remember the saints and our deceased family members and friends. As you seek to live out your own call to holiness, the Diocesan Marriage and Family Life Office encourages you to look for inspiration and strength in reflecting on the lives of those powerful men and women of faith who lived Gospel lives.

The life of holiness… constitutes the simplest and most attractive way to perceive at once the beauty of truth, the liberating force of God’s love, and the value of unconditional fidelity to all the demands of the Lord’s law, even in the most difficult situations. For this reason, the Church … has always invited believers to seek and to find in the saints … the model, the strength, and the joy needed to live a life in accordance with God’s commandments and the Beatitudes of the Gospel.”  Pope John Paul II, Veritatis Splendor, No. 107.2



Included in your bulletin this week end is a copy of the first Saint Mary School Quarterly Newsletter and an envelope for donating to The Saint Mary Elementary School Tuition Assistance Program.  All contributions to The Saint Mary Elementary School Guardian Angel Fund will provide tuition assistance to those families who are in need and assist the parish in meeting the operating expenses of the school.

A donation of $ 1,600 or $ 160/month for ten months will cover the funding gap for one student. Any and all donations will be appreciated. More detailed information regarding tuition assistance and the funding gap can be found by visiting the Saint Mary Parish Web site (
