When our church building closed in mid-March, Blessed Sacrament Cathedral Parish began to live stream the Holy Mass every single day. Through social media we attempted to keep you informed and connected by providing devotions, bible study, spiritual reflections, faith formation and informational updates to each of you. This had been accomplished via our parish website and through our YouTube Channel. We also expanded the use of our Cathedral Facebook page to provide prayer and information on a daily basis.
Additionally we developed a parish app which can be utilized by getting on our parish website and clicking on the box labeled "parish app." Our parish staff conducted a parish phone outreach especially to the elderly and homebound, Also once our church building opened, we creted a Ministry of Hospitality and are working to create volunteer cleaning crews to sanitize the church and restrooms after each use.
|Small (25%)||Clearance Renewals Needed for Volunteers!||No|
It has been 5 years since we first collected clearances for each of our volunteers. That means that it is time for you to renew your clearances if you haven't already done so. Any volunteer 18 or over needs to complete clearances and keep them up to date. Even though we most of our groups are not meeting right now, we still need you to update so that you can participate when groups start up again.
If you have any questions please contact Linda in the parish office at: 724-834-3710 ext. 23 or email Linda
To complete your clearances, please visit the diocesan website for youth protection. The link provided will give all the information and links you need to complete your clearances.

Political Campaign Activities Policy
(updated Oct. 6, 2020)
With the November 3, 2020, general elections approaching, this is a reminder to parishes about voter guides and what is permitted and not permitted during the campaign season. I would like to draw your attention to the policy on diocesan e-mail stated below. Also, this activities policy applies to homilies or bulletin articles in which candidates or political parties are endorsed from the pulpit because of a single issue.
A Pennsylvania Catholic Conference (PCC)-approved voter guide will be provided by the diocese prior to the election that will include information about the races for U.S. President and the Pennsylvania General Assembly (House and Senate) contests in districts within the Diocese of Greensburg. The voter guide material will be made available to the parishes and posted to the diocesan website.
