January 15 is the memorial of Saint Maurus, a disciple of Saint Benedict. Saint Maurus has been called the miracle-worker since he has miraculously freed many persons from their bodily afflictions through the Sign of the Cross and the relic of the True Cross of Christ. On Friday, January 15, our partner parishes will offer the traditional Blessing of Saint Maurus over the sick immediately following the 7:30 a.m. Mass at Saint James Church. The Blessing will last approximately 45 minutes. Everyone is welcome to receive the Blessing.

A rummage sale will be held in the basement of Our Lady, Queen of Peace Church, 420 McKinley Avenue, East Vandergrift on Saturday, February 6, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on Sunday, February 7, from 12 to 1 p.m.  Mask wearing and social distancing practices will be observed.  Everyone is invited.
