Loss of a Spouse

Tuesday, September 11th

This new, one session, two-hour seminar works just like a typical GriefShare meeting, with a short video followed by small-group discussion. The video features expert Christian counselors, authors, and pastors, including new interviews with some of your favorites from the GriefShare team. We will meet in the Church Hall from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on Tuesday, September 11th. Contact Deacon Ralph to attend.

Bishop Barron’s – The Mass

The Mass – A new series by Bishop Robert Barron

Why the postures and gestures? How do the different parts of the Mass fit together? Why should I want to attend Mass? What is the purpose of the Mass?

Join us three Mondays in July and three Mondays in August as we explore the joy and beauty of The Mass through a brand new series by Bishop Robert Barron. This program will be held in the Church Hall on the following Mondays from 6:30 pm to 8 pm:

July 9th – A Privileged Encounter: The Closest Thing to Heaven on Earth
July 16th – Called Out of the World: The Introductory Rites
July 23rd – God Speaks Our Story: The Scripture Readings
August 13th – Responding to Our God: Homily, Creed and Prayer of the Faithful
August 20th – Preparing for Sacrifice: Offertory and Eucharistic Prayer
August 27th – The Real Presence Creates Communion: Transubstantiation and Transformation

We can relate to Jesus in many ways, but there is no more intense or privileged way than at the Mass. For more information or to sign up to attend this program, contact Deacon Ralph at [email protected] or 724-625-1665 x2103 or by using the Contact Form at the left.

Grief Support – September 18 to November 13, 2018

Losing a loved one is very often a devastating and life changing event.  If you have experienced the death of a loved one, Saint Kilian Parish invites you to be part of a nine week program that offers support, conversation, and comfort.  The group will meet weekly from September 18 through November 13, 2018 on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm in the lower level of Saint Kilian Church.  You do not need to be present at every session but may attend as your schedule permits.  Our first session, Is This Normal? introduces the GriefShare program and explores why the grief experience may be harder than expected. Use Contact Form on left to register or for more information.



Email Prayer Ministry

We all know someone who could use a few prayers or, maybe we need a prayer or two ourselves!  Become a member of our email prayer chain ministry. The email prayer chain is made up of people who regularly check their email and desire to be part of the prayer team. Prayer requests will be sent via email allowing you to pray for members of our parish and all who need prayers. Sensitivity and care will be taken to provide confidentiality in prayer requests. Only first names are used in the prayer requests, unless we are sharing the passing of a loved one. Visit the Prayer Intention Page to submit prayers or email Deacon Ralph to join the Email Prayer Ministry.

 Thursday Morning Men’s Group

Every second Thursday of the month is an opportunity to gather with other men from the parish as we discuss Men Who Matter from the Bible. The group meets from 6 am to 7 am and begins with coffee and pastries followed by a presentation by Fr. Bober. We close with small group discussion and opportunity to attend the 7 am Mass in Church. In the Fall, our group will begin the That Man Is You program which looks at the challenges men face and how to strengthen their relationship with God.
