Parking Lot Improvements
Work will begin after Labor Day on the parish parking lots and driveways. This planned project was postponed until after the church renovations. The oldest section of the parking lot will be milled and paved. The rest of the parking area and driveways will be sealed and relined. This project will take place in sections so that the normal parish liturgies and activities can take place (but without major inconveniences). Please be patient with any adjustments especially on the weekend of September 17-18.
Blessing of the Animals
Join us on Sunday, October 2nd at 2 pm in the Virgin Mary's Courtyard for Blessing of the Animals. The custom of Blessing of the Animals usually takes places near the feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Although raised in a wealthy family, Franics chose a simple life of poverty, humility and the love of all things God created. There are stories of his special bond with animals, communicating with them as one soul to another. He is often depicted holding a bird surrounded by woodland animals. Parishioners are welcome to bring their pets for a blessing. For the safety of your pet please use a lease, crate or cage to protect them and the other animals.

The paper collection bins have been removed from the parking lot. The collection company was not remitting any payment to our parish and debris was collecting around the bins. We encourage parishioners to take advantage of the recycling opportunities through your township.
UNIVERSAL DAY OF PRAYER FOR PEACE

Please join the universal church body in praying for the peace and safety in Ukraine. You can find the links to the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy and Prayer of St. Francis below.
COVID UPDATE: All Are Welcome! Please respect the personal decisions of your fellow parishioners to wear or not wear a facial mask. Hand sanitizer is available in the vestibules. Thank you.
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!
