St Boniface Carnival News

Posted on September 16, 2019 in: St Boniface Activities

Blessed by magnificent weather, we enjoyed one of the best carnivals ever. While the money it raised will be superb support to St Boniface, I'm more impressed with the friend-raising that it spawned. Many more people joined in as volunteers. Lycoming students, new parishioners and veterans of the parish had a chance to work side by side. This only makes us better as we stand and pray together. Finally, we need to express our gratitude to the parish activities committee. They organize the smallest details and devoted hours to a successful 3 days. Bravo to all. May God bless your aching backs. Fr. Bill

THANK YOU for making the 2019 carnival a huge success!! We were finally blessed with great weather for all 3 nights! Our Fabulous Chef and kitchen staff prepared over 700 meals during the 3-day event. The dining room staff met that challenge like a well-oiled machine. Everyone was greeted with a smile and enjoyed delectable desserts prepared by our parishioners. Outside the smell of pierogis, hot sausage, and onions filled the air. The food stand crew fought through long lines and tired feet to provide our patrons with full stomachs. Thank you to everyone that filled the open positions to allow the food stand to run smooth...

Father Corcoran's Pastor's Corner

Posted on September 16, 2019 in: Pastor's Corner

September 15, 2019 As you can tell from my tone as I speak of the Annual Appeal, I'm treating it differently than last year. The Bishop and the Diocese have been very responsive to the suggestions and comments of the priests of Lycoming County. This year is demonstrably hopeful. Besides that, in the past weeks, I've tapped diocesan assistance for:  advice on campus ministry at Lycoming College,  use of a Spanish speaking priest,  recommendations on safety & security, opinions on liturgical art for the sanctuaries Scranton is helping us in more ways than you know. They help me ...

Father Corcoran's Pastor's Corner

Posted on September 09, 2019 in: Pastor's Corner

September 8, 2019 The relatively calm of summer has passed. I hope you had a chance to linger over some meals outside, savor fresh fruit, exercise, read a worthwhile book and pray quietly. But how do you save some of that glow as you face the onslaught of fall activities? The best of the saints has recommended to us... balance. Work diligently yet not confusing lengthy hours for productivity. Maybe, you can schedule yourself with breaks in between. Offer a brief time of prayer in the morning asking for the Holy Spirit's guidance. Pause at night when the lights are low and thank Jesus, no matter how the day went. The...

Father Corcoran's Pastor's Corner

Posted on September 03, 2019 in: Pastor's Corner

September 1, 2019   Often, people will ask, “how is the parish progressing?”  Sometimes they expect you to focus on attendance or contributions.  While both have been very gratifying, my best indicator is the willingness of parishioners to volunteer, to get involved. That has been superb and seems to expand regularly.  This is part of our role as baptized members of the church of Jesus.  The mission belongs to all of us, not just the Boys in Black and therefore, we are all responsible for its actions. I’ve seen a healthy response when we wanted to initiate Children&r...

August 25, 2019  So many of us have family members that either fell away from regular attendance or actually left the Church.  On the 27th, we honor St. Monica the mother of St. Augustine.  Initially, he had a mistress and a son outside of marriage.  For years, she prayed and gave a marvelous example hoping that her son would become a Christian and live a life of faith.  Eventually, he did and exceeded her wildest dreams.  For all family members who yearn for their family to embrace Christ, Monica is encouragement.  Next month we have 2 teenagers who have requested baptism because of...

August 18, 2019  Events in the world and the Church have pushed us to moments of despair.  That’s why the August 4th words of Pope Francis to priests struck me as relevant to all . . . “Thank you for the joy with which you have offered your lives, revealing a heart that over the years has refused to become closed and bitter, but has grown daily in love of God and his people.  A heart that, like good wine, has not turned sour, but becomes richer with age. In effect, we show that we continue to believe in God, who has never broken his covenant, despite our having broken it countless times. ...

RCIA - Did You Know?
RCIA –DID YOU KNOW? Who is RCIA for?  Briefly, for  1) persons in need of Baptism.  2) Persons baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become Catholic.  3) Persons baptized Catholic in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation.   How did a person become Catholic before RCIA?  At most parishes, the person was given individual instruction by the parish priest or someone delegated by him.  Why the change?  There were a number of limitations to private instruction.  The priest was the only member of the Catho...

If you or anyone you know are interested in becoming Catholic… The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process established for the universal Church for individuals to become Catholic Christians and receive the sacraments of initiation – Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.  This initiation process also involves a parish community experiencing a renewal in faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Church.  The Rite speaks of conversion as a “spiritual journey.”  Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus and the Church he founded, this journey ...
