As previously announced, the bishops are reinstating the obligation to attend Mass in person on Sundays and holy days beginning on Sunday, Aug. 15, 2021. However, by longstanding Church law, this obligation does not apply to those who are:
• Have a serious health risk
• In a household with those at risk
• Primary caregivers to those at risk
• Have serious anxiety or concerns about being in a large-group setting due to COVID-19
• Unable to attend Mass in person
As an act of charity, anyone who believes they might have COVID-19 or one of its variants or have been exposed should stay home.
Since all of the Covid protocols have been removed, our parish will begin to rebuild various ministries. We are in need of alter servers for Sunday masses. If you are in the fourth grade or older, please volunteer to become an altar server. It is a great honor to serve at the Altar of Almighty God. Call the parish to register your name or drop a note in the collection basket.
We are in need of lectors for the Masses. You must be a weekly practicing Catholic. If married, it must be a valid marriage in the church. You should have a good speaking voice. Training will be provided. If you are interested, please call the office or see Deacon Wentzel or drop a note in the collection basket.
Finally we need Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. You must be a practicing Catholic who has a great love for the Holy Eucharist. If married, it must be a valid marriage in the church . Training will be provided. If you wish to be considered, please call the office to speak with Deacon Wentzel. 717-272-5674 extension 3102.
Thank you for your consideration of these important ministries of our parish.
In honor of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Youth (grades 4-12) are eligible to participate in this ministry at Sunday Masses. Altar servers assist the priest and deacon during Mass by fetching, carrying, holding books, and ringing bells. Altar servers also carry and hold candles and the processional cross. We also have adult altar servers who assist at holy day Masses and at funeral Masses.

An important message from Rege Simon, lead usher at St. Mary’s.
With the Pandemic health restrictions beginning to ease at St. Mary’s, it is evident that the time is now upon us to rebuild the Usher Teams for the weekend masses. We have been Blessed with teams that perform the usher duties weekly for the past several years.
They are as follows :
• Saturday 5:30 PM Vigil Mass : Don Stoudt, Jim Martel and Jeff Arnold
• Sunday 7:30 AM Mass : Bob Mettley, Bill Kreiser and Mike Gilmartin
• Sunday 10:30 AM Mass : Drew Tobias, Bill Horney and Teresa Martin
These dedicated parishioners, along with other occasional helpers, have been the “backbone” who performed the usher duties so admirably. However, it is now time to enhance the teams to a capacity that is fully needed at each one of these weekend masses. We need an additional two ( 2 ) volunteers per mass to meet this goal. I am requesting your assistance in fulfilling these Teams.
The time is now to help your parish in this Corporal Work of Mercy. So, if you are at least 18 years of age and have the desire and ability to lead, please contact Rege Simon at 223-666-0982 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Father Bob and I, as well as St. Mary’s parish, thanks you !
