Join Us for Ben’s Men’s Rosary and Refreshments

Ben’s Men and all men of the parish are invited to gather at 7:00 pm around the “I Am the Resurrection and the Life Statue alongside of the church on August 13 for the recitation of the rosary. We encourage you to bring a date to this session, so invite your wife or girlfriend to come along. If it is raining, we will move indoors, so don’t let bad weather deter you.

Following the rosary, we will proceed to the Pope Benedict Center where light appetizers including cheese, crackers, meats and veggies will be provided along with a sampling of wines for you to taste. This year the host winery will be PK Winery from McDonald, PA. Mike and Tammy will share the flavors and aromas of their wines and explain the operation of their winery. Come and enjoy a relaxing evening of prayer, refreshments, and fellowship. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP by email to, or by calling Greg at 717-683-0928. You may also reply on The City. Your timely response is very important. We want to make sure that there is enough wine for everyone and other beverages for those that don’t drink wine. When you reply, indicate if you are coming alone or bringing a date.
