Spiritual opportunities for youth and young adults
Are you wondering where to point young adult and youth for spiritual opportunities? The Office of Young Adult and Youth Ministry has created a list of summer experiences and prayer opportunities that is available at https://www.eriercd.org/images/sections/youth/pdf/summer.pdf. For questions, or if you know of any other opportunities, please contact Jillian Zaczyk at jzaczyk@ErieRCD.org.

Special collections to resume in September
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic disruptions, special collections have not been taken up in parishes in the Diocese of Erie for several months. Parishes are asked to resume taking up special collections with the Sept. 20 Catholic Education Collection. Any miscellaneous monies received for other collections are to be processed and sent to the Finance Office as is customary. Please contact the Chancery at 814-824-1135 with any questions.

Copyright reminder
Parishes that are streaming Masses via a parish website, Facebook, YouTube, etc., are asked to be aware that you must have a streaming/podcast license, available through OneLicense.net. Also, you must report the music you are using. The diocese is investigating the cost efficiency of group licensing. Until a decision is made, please review further information in the attached document.

‘Marriage Matters’ newsletter has returned
After a hiatus of some months, the “Marriage Matters” newsletter of the Office of the Tribunal and Matrimonial Concerns of the Diocese of Erie has returned. See the June edition, attached.

Holy oils available for pick up
Because the Chrism Mass was not public this year, many clergy were unable to bring their own bottles to be filled with holy oils. Clergy are advised that they may now pick up the extra oil they need by visiting St. Mark Catholic Center, which has resumed normal work hours. To make arrangements, please call the Worship Office at 814-824-1271 or email mgrant@ErieRCD.org.
