Thanksgiving Day
Parish Mass at 10 A.M.

The parish Mass Thursday, November 26th, Thanksgiving Day, will be in Church at 10 A.M. Led by our cantors and the Adult Choir, we will sing within the Mass Morning Prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours. Seventh and eighth grade students in our Religious Education Program will host a coffee and donuts reception in the Church Hall immediately after Mass. The parish is indebted to our Liturgical Environment Committee for enhancing the Church for Thanksgiving.

No 6:30 or 9:00 A.M. Masses

Only the 10 A.M. Mass will be celebrated on Thanksgiving Day: there will be no 6:30 or 9:00 A.M. Mass.

All are encouraged to begin Thanksgiving Day by participating at Mass — the word eucharist means "thanksgiving." Parishioners are also encouraged to invite to our 10 A.M. parish Mass friends or neighbors who might otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving Day.


Advent Mission
7:30 P.M. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday
November 29th & 30th, December 1st

Our Parish Advent Mission this year will be directed by Rev. Peter M. J. Stravinskas, Ph.D., S.T.D., a professor, educationist and an acclaimed Mission and Retreat Director across the United States. Father Linus heard him speak on two occasions while in Florida, and recently in Long Island at a seminar that Father Stravinskas organized for priests who are involved in Catholic Schools. His messages are compelling and uplifting!


Sun/Nov 29th A Catholic Observance of Advent and Christmas
Mon/Nov 30th The Biblical Roots |of the Mass
Tues/Dec 1st Do Catholics Worship Mary?

Each evening will begin with Vespers at 7:30 P.M.>/small>, followed by a talk (45 min/with questions), and concluding with confessions.

You don't want to miss this priest and his powerful messages.

The date for the drop-off of the baskets (boxes) is Saturday, December 19th, in the Church parking lot between 9 and 10 A.M.

Please call Debbie Wenclawiak at 215-322-3222 to adopt a family or learn more about the program.

Confirmation Mass

You too are living stones, built as edifice of spirit.
1 Peter 2:5

You form a building which rises on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.
Ephesians 2:20

Here you build a temple of living stones, and bring the Church to its full stature as the body of Christ throughout the world, to reach its perfection at last in the heavenly city of Jerusalem.
Preface for the Dedication of a Church

Inspired by these quotations, our WEB pages are intended to strengthen unity and improve communication within our parish, and establish bonds with other "living stones," Christian communities throughout the world.

We are building this WEB site in a spirit of "monastic simplicity." Our goal is not an award-winning presentation; it is rather to help our faith community and others see our place more clearly in "the temple of living stones," "the body of Christ throughout the world." As the building of this "temple" is in progress, so is the building of this WEB site. Comments and suggestions are welcome, both to improve communication within the parish, and to bond together with Christian communities throughout the world.
