Lord’s Masses at Saints Peter and Paul Parish, 260 N. Third St., Lehighton, begin Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 7:45 a.m. and 10 a.m. Father Christopher M. Zelonis offers the holy sacrifice of the Mass with the help of Deacon Joseph C. Wilhelm Jr. There is no distance requirement, and masks do not need to be worn at unless you are not yet two weeks after your second vaccination. For those who need or want the space, our parish hall (school building) broadcasts each mass live from the church and can accommodate 25 additional people.
For those who are not ready or able to join us in person, each Mass is broadcast live on our parish Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/sspplehightonpa, and on our website, peterandpaulchurch.com, and is available on our parish YouTube channel. We love the sight and the sound of the kids!
Register on formed.org under our parish to have access to solid Catholic content for all ages.
The doctrinal, liturgical, moral and spiritual formation of our young people takes place during the school year from 8.45 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the parish hall, respecting all health precautions. Registrations for the 2021-22 year of PREP are underway. Contact Deacon Wilhelm at 610-377-3690 for more information.
While the presbytery porch is under construction, tours of the presbytery and deliveries will be received at the back door. Confessions will resume in the room of tears at the back of the church.
From this Sunday, between the Sunday Masses of 7.45 am and 10 am, the parishioner John Meier presents in the parish hall a six-week seminar entitled “Your second communion”, which traces the biblical foundations of the Eucharist.
Our summer “Backyard Bash” block party will take place July 23 and 24 from 5 pm to 10 pm. American and Ethnic food, big-ticket and gift card raffles, kids games, bingo, entertainment, and lots of fun all around! The next planning meeting is June 7 at 7 p.m. in the modular building. At the rectory or after masses, consider buying raffle tickets for three prizes: $ 500 in cash, a propane grill, a wood-burning fireplace and a set of non-gravity chairs.
If any parishioners wish to attend the diocesan pilgrimage to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, DC on October 7, notify the parish office. Although we are currently looking to join the bus from another parish, with sufficient interest we will deploy ours. But act quickly!
