Father Chuck’s Challenge

This weekend, Fr. Charles Kennedy will be speaking at our Masses. He represents Father Chuck’s Challenge, an initiative celebrating the memory and ministry of Father Charles Pfeffer, a beloved priest of our Archdiocese.

Donors have provided more than 1,400 homes for the desperately poor in the Northern Highlands of Nicaragua and in Haiti. Yet, hundreds more still need our help!

A special collection will be taken up next week. Checks may be written out to our parish. Envelopes and brochures will be available in the narthex with more information on additional ways to donate, including employer matching.

Bible Study

Lectio: Eucharist – Unveiling Scripture & Tradition
Discovering the Mass in the Old & New Testaments

Where is “The Mass” in scripture?

Where did we get all the bells and whistles and why we do what we do during Mass?

We can’t just look to New Testament to help us understand the answers to these questions. We need to go through the Bible; Genesis to Revelation. This Bible study series will help us to understand the answers to these questions and many more. Join us this summer on the dates below:

July 16, 23, 30   August 6, 13, 20
There will be two times to attend: 9:30 am or 6:45 pm
Each class should be approximately 90 minutes with discussion.

All are welcome!
RSVP to make sure we have enough handouts at 610-268-0296.

PREP Summer Session Survey

The P.R.E.P. staff needs your help. We are measuring interest for a Summer Session of P.R.E.P. for the summer of 2020. Please answer the following questions to help us make our decision.

The tentative schedule is two weeks, Monday to Friday, beginning with Mass at 9:00 am and the day ending at 12:30 pm. 4-5 meetings will also be held during the regular school year. If most families answer “Yes” to this questionnaire, we can contact everyone and set a definite schedule.

You will receive this same questionnaire via email and website. Please only answer one time.

Blessings, P.R.E.P. Staff
