Thank you to Father Don Dusza for his 13 years service to our parish. His contact info is: 925 Huron Ave, Renovo, PA 17764 570-923-0172 firstname.lastname@example.org
From Fr. Dusza, ___After 13 years at St. Thomas, it is difficult to say goodbye and pack and leave. I’ve made many good friends and shared in many family events: baptisims, weddings, deaths, confirmations. I want to thank everyone for their generosity at my goodbye party and all of the 13 years! ___The size of the parish does not warrant a school-but it still was provided by your contributations and the hard work of volunteers who desired Catholic Education. ___Thank you also to all who volunteer to teach Religious Education-a noble and time consuming task. ___To all who worked on my goodbye party-Cathie Russell and the Ladies Guild- it was a wonderful send-off and I thank you! _______________________May God Bless You Always, Fr. Dusza
Thank you so much for all of those who helped us celebrate our 200th Anniversary. Mass was held at noon on May 22nd with Bishop Mark Bartchak celebrating. Father Raymond Crosser was also present. A special thank you to the Adult & Youth Choirs who joined their voices in praise and thanksgiving in our celebration of the Mass. Afterwards, we all enjoyed our 200th Anniversary Dinner at the Bedford Elks Country Club.

"Many problems darken the horizon of our time. We need but think of the urgent need to work for peace, to base relationships between peoples on solid premises of justice and solidarity, and to defend human life from conception to its natural end.
And what should we say of the thousand inconsistencies of a ‘globalized’ world where the weakest, the most powerless and the poorest appear to have so little hope!
It is in this world that Christian hope must shine forth! For this reason too, the Lord wished to remain with us in the Eucharist, making his presence in meal and sacrifice, the promise of a humanity renewed by his love."
Our Lady of the Rosary Novena
O, dear disciple, Mary. Each bead tells a story; each decade reveals a mystery to contemplate. Nourished by your close encounter with your Son, Jesus, growing alike mind and heart. Teach us from the fruits of your encounter as we ponder the mysteries, learning how to be disciples. O, Mary exemplar disciple. Help us encounter your Son! Amen
