SPRING BLOOD DRIVE
Mark your calendars now for the summer blood drive at St. John Fisher Parish - Monday, March 14, 2022 from 2:00pm until 7:00pm. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE AND PLAN TO DONATE!
The highest standards of safety and infection control, including social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff, have been implemented to safeguard donors, volunteers, and employees.
Did you know Type O+ is the most frequently occurring blood type? The universal red cell donor has Type O- blood, and the universal plasma donor has Type AB blood. There is a critical need for blood donations right now. Can you help us meet a goal of 50 units?
To sign up, you can go online to redcrossblood.org Click on “Donate Blood” and a new widow will open. “Find a Blood Drive” by zip code is located at the top right. Type in “19061” and click ‘load more results’ until you reach St. John Fisher on March 14. A window will open where you can choose a time to donate. If you previously have donated, you may get a call to schedule an appointment time.
COVID UPDATE: It is now common practice at local businesses to follow the CDC recommendations of wearing a mask in public indoor spaces regardless of vaccination status. St. John Fisher Parish will follow this practice: masks are recommended indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Eucharistic Ministers will continue to sanitize their hands and wear a mask for the distribution of Holy Communion. Choirs have resumed singing and will be wearing masks for their safety. Thank you for your patience and concern for others during these trying times.
NOTHING COMPARES TO BEING THERE! Weddings, birthdays, parties...nothing beats being there in person! The same holds true for the celebration of Mass. Be there in person to receive Jesus in the Eucharist and celebrate the Good News with fellow parishioners. Just a reminder that the Bishops of Pennsyvania have reintstated the obligation to attend Mass in person beginning Sunday, August 15. Dispensation still applies for the ill, elderly, those at high risk, and those caring for these loved ones.
CARING FOR FRIENDS The freezer is low on meals! If you are able to prepare an extra portion of your main meal, and package it in the provided containers, it will be used to help the needy senior citizens in our community. Containers, foil, bags and content labels are available in the Parish Center Kitchen by the freezer. Thank you!
LIVE STREAMING MASS: St. John Fisher Parish will continue to live-stream Mass through our website and facebook page. Each week, Father will celebrate the 4:00pm Vigil Mass live. It will be recorded and remain available on Facebook until 11:00 pm on Sunday. If you choose to avoid public Mass, please continue to join us for Mass through our on-line streaming.
