LIFELINES The potential benefits of adult stem cell research are very considerable, since it opens up possibilities for healing chronic degenerative illnesses by repairing damaged tissue and restoring its capacity for regeneration. The improvement that such therapies promise would constitute a significant step forward in medical science, bringing fresh hope to sufferers and their families alike. For this reason, the Church naturally offers her encouragement to those who are engaged in conducting and supporting research of this kind, always with the proviso that it be carried out with due regard for the integral good of the human person and the common good of society. ~Pope Benedict XVI, Address to the Participants in the “International Conference on Adult Stem Cells: Science and the Future of Man and Culture,” November 12, 2011 SHAKING HANDS As the winter cold & flu season is upon us, we are suspending shaking hands at the sign of peace until further notice.

DIOCESE OF SCRANTON HOSTING VOCATION DISCERNMENT WEEKEND The Diocese of Scranton Vocation Office is hosting a weekend of discernment for young men in high school and beyond, ages 16-30, to assist them in recognizing whether God is inviting them to step forward to offer their lives as diocesan priests. The weekend will be held Feb. 10-12 at Fatima Center in Dalton. The program runs from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon and includes a presentation on the basics of praying into God’s will for us, testimony from current seminarians, celebration of Mass, personal prayer, and fraternity. “Many young men have imagined the possibility of being a priest one day. Many have been told by others that they possess the qualities that would make a good priest. Often as young men consider their future, the idea of priesthood occurs over and over again, even as they look to other possible careers or to the married life. Frequently young men find peace around their search to know where God is leading them by talking about their interest in priesthood and by listening to the experience of those who have already decided to enter seminary to become priests,” said Father Jim Rafferty, Diocesan vocation director. For further information, contact Father Rafferty at 1-570-2071452 or Rev-James-Rafferty@dioceseofscranton.org DIOCESAN COUNCIL OF CATHOLIC WOMEN The Diocesan Council of Catholic Women ask the faithful of the Diocese to offer prayer intentions during the month of January for “Peace.” Please pray (7) Our Father’s, (7) Hail Mary’s, (7) Glory Be’s and the Creed for this intention. May peace reign in your heart, in your family and in the world. DIOCESAN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION His Excellency The Most Reverend Joseph C. Bambera, D.D., J.C.L., Bishop of Scranton and the Office for Parish Life & Evangelization/Family Life wish to invite couples celebrating their 25th or 50th wedding anniversary in 2012 to a diocesan Wedding Anniversary Mass on Sunday, June 3rd. The event includes a 2:30PM Mass at St. Peter’s Cathedral followed by a reception. Requests for an invitation, with a mailing address that will be accurate in March, should be made through the Parish Office (553-2288) before March 1st. WORLDWIDE MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER Why not give your spouse a Valentines' present that can "restore communication", "renew commitment" and "rekindle romance" in your relationship? Attend a Worldwide Marriage Encounter weekend (44 hours where you can focus totally on each other). The next weekend will be held at the St. Francis Renewal Center, Bethlehem on February 10-12, 2012.
