Community Ministries


Parish Prayer-Line 

Are you in need of some extra prayer?  At times, many of us find ourselves struggling with life’s unexpected challenges, changes at home or work, celebrating new life, and so much more.  People from our parish recognize the importance and power of prayer for our community. If you would like to join the list of prayer warriors, please call Kathy Higgins at 724-342-7858.  Whenever we receive a request for prayer, you will get a call asking for your prayers for that person in need.


This special group of “senior” parishioners gathers several times per year to share a meal together.  The main course is provided and prepared by the loving hands of the OWLS organizers and served buffet style with side dishes and desserts brought and shared.  

Watch the bulletin for the next OWLS dinner invitation (open to all) and plan to join us for a delicious meal and even better conversation and fellowship.  If you have questions or want to be sure you don’t miss the invitation, please call Ann Nicolls at (724) 962-7164 or send a text to (724) 854-6207 with your name and contact information and she will gladly add you to the list.

Small Group Faith Sharing

What better way to learn and share our faith in a community with 1,300 members than to meet in a small group setting to share the Word and our faith with one another. Notre Dame has been part of this experience since the early 1990s with numerous groups still meeting with their original small groups.  The Small Faith Sharing group Involves gathering (weekly or bi-weekly) to share the Gospel and discuss how we live out that Gospel as Disciples of Christ.  Would you like to join a small group of 8-10 people and grow in your faith? Call Kathy Higgins at (724) 342-7858 or the church office at (724) 981-5566.
