Assignment Changes!

Dear Parishioners,

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.

Eucharistic Revival

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."

Summer CHALLENGE!

Each year, I challenge you to grow in your spiritual life by reading a book I've pre-selected with you in mind. In the fall, I will gather with those interested to discuss the book chapter by chapter. This is a great opportunity to grow in your relationship with God, connect with other parishioners, and deepen your understanding of yourself and our faith.
