Resources to Form Consciences
in Preparation for Voting

Every four years, the U.S. Bishops issue a document entitled Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship to assist Catholics in preparing to vote. A four page summary of that document has also been prepared.

The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference has promulgated a comparison of the two presidential candidates' positions on key issues from a Catholic perspective.

These resources are being made available to assist Catholics in preparing conscietiously for the presidential election.

Mass for the Twenty-Ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time


Streaming Mass from St. Vincent's

The Parish Mass for the Twenty-Ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time, October 18th, is available. It is pre-recorded, and, although not live stream, is available at any time.

The parish continues to stream Sunday and Holyday Masses.


Modified Mass Schedule at St. Vincent's

The weekend Mass schedule had to be modified to allow enough time between the Masses for sanitizing:

5:00 P.M. Saturday Vigil Mass

7:30 A.M., 10:30 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. Sunday Masses

Monday through Friday

6:30 A.M. in the Chapel
9:00 A.M. in the Church

Saturday at 8:00 A.M. in the Church

Face masks must be worn by all attending Mass, and social distance must be maintained while seated and while processing in and out of Church and to and from Communion.

After each Mass the Church (or Chapel) must be sanitized.

Family Sunday Prayer Service

In the Church's view, the family is the domestic Church, so Father McLaughlin has suggested that during this crisis when attendance at Sunday Mass is not an option, the head of the family leads the entire family in prayer each Sunday.

A resource has been developed to provide a ritual by which families, "the domestic church," can keep the Lord's day holy by joining together to celebrate part of the Church's liturgy at home. Ideally, the head of the family will lead the service; other members of the family should take on roles as readers. Each ritual for home is for a specific Sunday or holyday; it includes the Readings used at Mass and thus unites the family with the Masses that are being celebrated throughout the world. It could also be used in following the Liturgy of the Word in a televised or live stream Mass.

People to People Sunday
Food Collections Continue

Jesus Focus Food Bank

Since we cannot achieve "hands free" transferral of non-perishable food for the Jesus Focus Ministry Food Bank on People to People Sunday, the first and third Sundays of the month, the in-parish collection of these goods continues to be suspended. However, the need still exists — actually, it is greater because many have lost their jobs.

Parishioners are encouraged to deliver food directly to the food bank at 1030 2nd Street Pike, Southampton, PA (215-953-2000). As you drive into the Bethanna Complex, you will see the shed in the above picture. Place the food in the shed if no staff are present; staff are present from 9:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. and will assist — you simply put your delivery on a cart.

The need is for nonperishable food and canned goods, especially those high in protein, as well as personal hygiene products.
