Updating Parish Membership as Youth become Adults
Our parish maintains the registration of youth members under their parent’s household registration until they turn 21 years old or upon college graduation. Our office relies on your help to keep our records up-to-date as your children grow into adulthood. Therefore, we encourage you, or your adult children living at your address, to take time to ‘re-register’ as members of our parish community. This will not only help our parish to have up-to-date information, but will also be beneficial if they need a Sponsor Certificate verifying their active membership.
Registering at Saint Benedict is as convenient as by stopping by the parish office during regular office hours or by clicking here to register online.
Active membership in a Catholic parish is a requirement to be eligible for:
- the Sacrament of Marriage
- the Sacrament of Confirmation
- the Sacrament of Baptism of a child
- the reception of First Communion
- a sponsor certificate for Baptism/Confirmation

St. Benedict Parish presents: Lifelong learning in Faith
A Biblical Walk through the Mass
Thanks to you, our Lenten study was a huge success! We had 78 people register for “A Biblical Walk through the Mass”. We explored the biblical meanings behind the components of the Mass and as a result, gained a renewed appreciation for the gift we receive each week as we encounter the true presence of Jesus.
Reflections from Participants:
"I have a better understanding of the parts of the Mass. There were things I had once learned, but had forgotten."
"It was very relatable, food for thought."
"I enjoyed everything about the program. It was done in a way that I could understand."
"I loved the explanation of the different parts of the Mass. The knowledge makes the Mass come alive to me."
We’d love for you to join us next time!
Please feel free to forward suggestions for future programs to Paiello@dioceseofgreensburg.org
SAVE THE DATE - The Saint Benedict Annual Festival will be held July 13 & 14.
