Mass Time Change

As we move into the future this year with the Church Alive configurations, we are trying to enhance our Youth Group. It seems that Sundays are a better choice due to other school activities on weekday evening. In the past, when this was attempted, it conflicted with Sunday evening Mass. Our Sunday evening Mass attendance is down between 50-75 people on average compared to the past five years. Therefore, I would like to move the Mass time to 6:00 pm instead of 7:00 pm. This would also give a better opportunity when needing substitute priest help. This has to be done with consultation from the parishioners. So with this in mind, if you object, please leave me a voice message in the office at 412-373-0050 or an email at agargotta@stbpitt.com before Wednesday, January 24. If I do not hear from you, I will assume that this move is valid to request from the diocese.
