Today Archbishop Perez announced priest personal changes throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for pastors and administrators. Effective Monday, June 20th, I will be reassigned to St. Mary’s, Schwenksville. Fr. Loomis has been assigned to Annunciation BVM as Parish Administrator for one year with the
expectation of being named pastor next year. It is the policy of the Archdiocese to assign priests without prior experience as pastors as administrators for one year before being name pastor.
The Bishops of the United States are calling for a three-year grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They believe that
God wants to see a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed, and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist-and sent out in mission "for the life of the world."
More Lectors are needed to help fill in our Sunday Mass schedule. To assist in proclaiming the Word of God is a privilege and a calling within the community that we invite you to consider. If interested, please contact the parish office.
The Holy Eucharist remains the greatest treasure of the Catholic Church and the source and summit of our faith. Due to the limited number of clergy, Annunciation B.V.M. depends on the assistance of parishioiners to help with the distribution of Holy Communion during Mass, and if willing, to the homebound and hospitals. Please consider being a part of this vital ministry and contact the parish office for more details.
