Bishop Zubik offers a personal message of appreciation to donors for their sacrificial gifts to Our Campaign for The Church Alive!
A pressing need of the Church is to ordain more good priests, and so gifts to Our Campaign for The Church Alive! support the education of seminarians.
Meet Father Michael Ackerman, ordained less than one year, and hard at work in his priestly ministry.
Thank you – your gift is making a difference!
Urges the Faithful ‘to continue to be excited about our faith’
Catholics and clergy across the six counties of the Diocese of Pittsburgh have responded overwhelmingly to an historic campaign to strengthen parishes and evangelize, Bishop David A. Zubik announced today.
Father Dan Whalen sees the big picture when it comes to living our faith—it’s all about getting ready.
“Our life on earth is just preparatory. The real life is eternal,” said Father Whalen, pastor of Holy Spirit and St. Nicholas parishes in Millvale. “All we’re doing is getting ready for that.
“God is love, and all you can do with love is to give it away,” he said.
Laura O’Keeffe initially was uncomfortable with the thought of asking fellow parishioners at Sts. Simon and Jude Parish in Scott Township to support Our Campaign for The Church Alive!
But she allowed the Holy Spirit to fire her up and discovered an unexpected blessing—the chance to talk with others about their love for Jesus.
