Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI passed away Saturday, December 31st at the age of 95 in his place of residence, the Vatican monastery. His last words, as recorded by his personal nurse, were "Lord, I love you!" He will be rememberd for his selfless contributions to the Catholic community worldwide.
Mass Intentions are accepted for most Sunday, Solemnities and daily Masses at the parish office during regular business hours. Each Sunday, a Mass is offered for the "People of the Parish". These are announced Masses as the intention is published in the bulletin and the intention is mentioned at Mass.
Unannounced Masses are also accepted. These Masses are typically offered by priests at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary or missionary priests for the intention.
The recommended stipend for Announced or Unannounced Mass is $10. As we are limited to taking intentions only one year in advance and with the many requests for Mass Intentions, we open the Mass book quarterly.
The quarterly openings for Mass Intentions are in January (for Oct. 1 - Dec 31, same year); April (for Jan.1 - March 31, next year); July (for Apr 1 - June 30, next year); October (for July 1 - Sept 30, next year). It is hoped that this is a fair and equitable systems to accommodate the needs of our parish family.
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
On Wednesday January 26, Pope Francis called for a universal day of prayer for peace in Ukraine by praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and the Prayer of St. Francis. 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!
