Advent Family Day
November 24, 2019 Families from St. Boniface and St. Lawrence gathered together to create beautiful Advent wreaths and learned how they can use these wreaths for family prayer in their homes during the season of Advent.  Many thanks to Arnie Betts and the 7th grade class who offered their services to set up, clean up and distribute materials to the families. A big thank you goes out to Susana Falck who was instrumental in designing the wreath and teaching the families how to create it, as well as to the group of parish ladies (and friends) who gathered to prepare th...

PREP
Father Corcoran's Pastor's Corner
December 1:  Last month our pilgrimage sang Christmas Carol's in Bethlehem. While it was hot outside, it felt appropriate to ask Jesus to make himself more tangible and visible in our lives. Advent is our chance to open our hearts and focus on the important, spiritual reason for this season. Take advantage by reading, praying and simply being thankful God reached out to us.

Father Corcoran's Pastor's Corner
November 24 - Many of us prefer THANKSGIVING to most other holidays. It’s not spoiled by commercialism, the meal is based on comfort food, the football is fabulous and the day revolves around family. With the Pilgrims, the underlying principle had one other key element, gratitude to God. It remembers that despite our hard work, all good things ultimately come from God. The Almighty who is Creator, Sustainer, Sanctifier is intimately involved in our lives daily. "Praise God from whom all blessings flow" is a hymn we all have voiced. Besides Eucharist (giving ...

Father Corcoran's Pastor's Corner
Sunday the 3rd at 3pm, we serenade Mary with classical songs of beauty and peace. Our talented choir supplemented by some of the Williamsport Symphony will lift you up into prayerful moments that remembers her role. As a teenager, she said Yes to God's frightening request of her. Thereafter, she served as a disciple of the Saviour . The Gospels remind us that she encouraged Jesus at his first miracle and she stood with him at the foot of the cross when the men had disappeared. Moreover, Mary was among the select few in the Upper Room when the Holy Spirit descended...
