The Helpers' Pilgrimage to Allentown Planned Parenthood is on Saturday, August 1st. Meet at the parking lot at 9AM for a light breakfast. Leave for the Helpers' Pilgrimage at 9:15AM. We will abstain from unnecessary talking once the pilgrimage begins. Instead, we will be praying and singing as we walk to the Allentown abortion mill. Once across the street from Planned Parenthood, we will pray the Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. We will return to the church the same way we came. Those who can not walk will remain in the church for Eucharistic Adoration.

Thank you for volunteering to wipe the church surfaces down between Masses. There are additional wipes on the window sills for your use as well.
May God reward you.

In those days again, when there was a great multitude, and had nothing to eat; calling his disciples together, he saith to them: I have compassion on the multitude, for behold they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat. And if I shall send them away fasting to their home, they will faint in the way; for some of them came from afar off. And his disciples answered him: From whence can any one fill them here with bread in the wilderness? And he asked them: How many loaves have ye? Who said: Seven. And taking the seven loaves, giving thanks, he broke, and gave to his disciples for to set before them; and they set them before the people. And they had a few little fishes; and he blessed them, and commanded them to be set before them. And they did eat and were filled.
