The Diocese of Scranton has kicked off the second Rectory, Set, Cook! fundraiser!

This year, Fr. Seth and Fr. Mosley are in the rectory kitchen cooking up a batch of Fr. Mosley's polish dessert Chrusciki, or Angel Wings.  Well, Fr. Mosley did a lot of the prep work, but Fr. Seth helped out by making himself a good highball!

Fr. Mosley came in third place in the 2022 Rectory, Set, Cook! contest making homemade pierogies with his mother, which earned him a prized Master Pastor Chef hat.  Even Fr. Seth's flaming Bananas Foster could not accomplish the same outcome, so this year we're on a mission to #GetFrSethAHat

Watch their video today and then "vote" for Team Carbondale with a donation of $10. Money raised on their video will be split with half benefiting Catholic Social Services and half benefiting our Parishes directly.

Voting is open through Fat Tuesday, February 21st!

If you do not wish to donate online, there are specifically marked envelopes at the Church entrances for Rectory, Set, Cook!, Simply return your envelope in the collection basket.

Diocese Vision 2030

The Diocese of Scranton's Vision 2030 Blueprint Planning Process is a long range pastoral planning process. While looking proactively as the realities of our local church in the present moment, this process strives to meet the opportunities and challenges of the coming decade in order to create vibrant expressions of parish life rooted in the life of Jesus Christ.

We invite all to be involved in our Carbondale town hall meetings to discuss this process in the coming months.  For further information about the Vision 2030 initiative, please read the January 13, 2022 edition of The Catholic Light, pick up a copy of the planning process in the entrance of all three Churches, or view the planning process on the Diocese Vision 2030 website.
