The Apostolate Committee would like to thank everyone who donated their time and talents making afghans and lap afghans for the sick and shut ins last year. The program was so successful, we delivered approximately 130 afghans through last December. We are once again asking all knitters and crocheters if you would give of your time and talents to donate a lap afghan. The happiness that radiates from the people receiving these warms the heart. If you have any questions please call Jackie at 724-869- 9908. Any donations made can be dropped off at the parish office, Monday thru Friday, 9am to 4pm.
New York City
Our Lady of Peace is sponsoring a trip to New York City on Dec. 2 - 3, 2017 [Sat. and Sun.]. The bus will pick us up at Northern Lights Shopping Center where we will travel to exciting New York City just in time for holiday shopping and sightseeing. Upon arrival in New York, we will check in at the Hilton Meadowlands Hotel, then it's off to explore the city of lights. Highlights of the tour include a visit to the 911 Memorial, a drive to Battery Park to view the Statue of Liberty, the Broadway production of Miss Saigon [which is optional] and the lights of Broadway, dinner in Manhattan, breakfast, shopping time, and a visit to Trinity Cemetery where many notable people from the Revolutionary War are buried including Alexander Hamilton, Liza and Angelica Schuyler, James Monroe, plus more from the Revolution, as well as Clement Moore [author of The Night Before Christmas], Robert Fulton, and John Jacob Astor, to name only a few of the famous buried here. Prices, which include everything mentioned, are $345.00 per person double occupancy, $320.00 p/p triple, $300 p/p quad, and $420 single occupancy. If you don't want to attend the Broadway show of Miss Saigon and would rather shop, you can subtract $77.00 from the total cost. A $150.00 deposit is required to hold your reservation, with the remaining balance due by Oct. 23. You must tell us with your deposit if you would like to see Miss Saigon so we can hold the tickets.
