Because We Are Catholic!

 

Dear Friends,

       I want to thank you for your attention and interest as we have presented the 2022 Because We are Catholic Annual Appeal the past few weeks.

      As your Pastor, I want you to know that I support this effort. Every year, the Appeal provides the means to continue the mission that Christ has entrusted to us: to serve, to educate, to care for the poor and marginalized and to be an inspiration of hope. The ministries, seminarians, retired priests, and programs that benefit from this effort allow us to fulfill our Diocesan Mission which is to be a Roman Catholic Family of Faith, centered in the Holy Eucharist, faithful to the Church’s teaching, bringing the Light of Christ to each other, and to our community.

    Your generosity funds the annual budget for important Diocesan ministries in our area. You can make your gift online at BecauseWeAreCatholic.org.

 

With gratitude,

 

Fr. Andy


 

Respect for Life

 

 

 

        There is always a loving alternative to abortion.  I hope to offer more as a parish to offer support mothers in crisis to find support in their trial.

        Check out this film in the theatres near us this weekend – “The Matter of Life” at these theaters: AMC Center Valley 16, MT Trexlertown, Allentown, that helps us to see the sacredness of life!

      Our Diocese also offers a retreat for healing after abortion that I ask everyone to please pass on to people who are suffering.  Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat will be June 24-26, 2022.  In a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment those affected by abortion can focus on this painful experience and begin to enter into the process of healing.

      For Registration information contact: Carol Swavely, MA 1-866-3 RACHEL (Toll Free) 610-435-1541 Ext 373 carolswavely@ptd.net  Deadline for registration is June 27th.  The retreat will be held in Mariawald Retreat Center in Reading, PA.
