Here For You

Dear Friends, As we have all heard, we are moving into the “green phase” of the commonwealth’s easing back into activity. As I write this, I am not sure what impact that will have for our experience of Mass and other parish activities. We have a webinar meeting with the Archdiocese on June 24 to review the implications. It has been so heartening to see so many of our parish family members at Mass these past two weekends and at our daily Masses as well. It is also heartening to know so many more are watching our live stream Mass at 10 am. Thank you for your patience and kind cooperation as we try to navigate through this situation.

Excitement Building

Dear Friends, Last weekend was filled with joy and excitement! It was so good to see so many of our parish family in Church. I confess that I was rather nervous about how everything would go as we began publicly celebrating Masses. We did a lot of planning and preparation.

In the name of the people of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, I express my prayerful condolences and

Trinity Sunday

Dear Friends, Happy Trinity Sunday! It is the last weekend of private Mass celebrations. We begin public celebration of Mass on Monday, June 8 at 9 AM in the main Church. We will not have the 6:30 weekday Mass immediately so as to assess how we are able to clean and sanitize on a daily basis. We look forward to starting that Mass as well. Information about reopening public celebration of Mass was sent this past week via Constant Contact as well as by mail to your homes. It is a lot of information but vitally important. Due to the need for cleaning/sanitizing after each Mass, the Mass schedule has been adjusted and the number of weekend Masses lessened. We will not be celebrating a Mas
