Family Sunday Prayer Service

In the Church's view, the family is the domestic Church, so Father McLaughlin has suggested that during this time when many parishioners continue to be uncomfortable attending Mass in person, 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.

Meals for the Homeless Program Resume

For several months our parish Meals for the Homeless program was asked not to prepare casseroles for the homeless to be served by St. John's Hospice in Philadelphia because the freezer truck used to pick-up the casseroles was totaled in a traffic accident (the driver is okay, thank God), and the kitchen was being renovated leaving no place to store the casseroles. .sp .4v They now have a new truck, and the kitchen renovations are complete! Casseroles will be collected Sunday, July 18th, from 11:00 A.M. to 1:30 P.M. — note that the Sunday collection times are different than usual for this month only — and Monday, July 19th, between 6 and 8 P.M., at 20 Worthington Mill Road. Casseroles are collected the Sunday and Monday before the third Tuesday of the month,
