Marcie Reilly
Witness Speaker

Thank you so much for welcoming me to join you in praising the Lord!  My name is Marcie Reilly.  I’m a parishioner at St. Kilian’s parish in Cranberry Twp. I am also a single mother of 2 teenage boys, co-owner of a family business, & founder of North Hills NOW ministry.  Since I was a child I loved Jesus and his generous blessings throughout my life have ignited in my heart a constant song of praise! The joy He fills me with is uncontainable and my heart yearns to bring all of his children closer to him, so that everyone can feel how much He loves them! Truly, sharing Jesus with others is my mission in life and the beat of my heart. I am so grateful to be able to share my story with you and I pray that it moves your hearts as well!

Trusting Jesus

Trust in Jesus with all your heart. Occasionally, there are times in our lives when we may be dismayed and fearful and our hearts are troubled. When that happens to us it would be prudent to remember that our Lord Jesus is here to guide us, and therefore, resist the temptation to rely on our own intelligence for answers or guidance. Remember, Jesus is with us wherever we are and He will make straight the path for us to follow.

Donna Yantz-Lease will be back as Witness Speaker with words of encouragement of how trusting Jesus continues to guide her life. We welcome back Father Dan Waruszewski who is currently Parochial Vicar serving in the Butler/Center/Lyndora/Meridian grouping.

Come join all your friends as we sing, pray and worship our truest friend, Jesus. Our Praise Band provides beautiful, motivational music as our voices blend together as one song of praise. In addition to the inspirational talk by Father Dan, there will be adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Benediction and Eucharistic Procession. Come celebrate with friends and family.

An open invitation is extended to you, your family and friends, to join with us in celebrating the love of Jesus.

Songs for upcoming celebration.
