For all those Pittsburghers in medicine, nursing, dentistry and other healthcare fields (which is probably a good chunk of the population), please mark this on your calendars:
Sunday, September 21, 2008 Mass @ 9:00 a.m., Holy Family Chapel, UPMC-Mercy Hospital Bishop David A. Zubik, D.D. – Main Celebrant Breakfast Program to follow in Sr. Ferdinand M. Clark Auditorium Speaker: John F. Brehany, Ph.D., S.T.L. Executive Director and Ethicist, National CMA
The Fathers of the Pittsburgh Oratory are pleased to announce that the enormous graces of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration will be made available to all who live, worship, work, and study within our university communities beginningJune 29, 2008. This is in unity with the whole Church in celebration of the “Year of Saint Paul” proclaimed by our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI and heeding the call of our Bishop, His Excellency David Zubik, to allow our Lord to draw us deeper into His Sacred Heart through prayer. Nowhere does Heart speak to heart more clearly and profoundly than in the Sacrament of His infinite love.
Am I the only Pittsburgher who doesn’t give a flying fart about the Pens?
Come to think of it, I’m not sure I care much for any team, or any sport for that matter. With each passing year I find it harder to get excited about watching people get paid too much to play games. I’d rather participate a sport myself (like ultimate) or watch amateur and unpopular, low-paying professional sports (like track and cross-country). The only popular professional sport I care much about any more is football, and even that’s losing my interest. Maybe I need to start watching soccer.
