Men and boys of the parish are invited to serve for Holy Mass. Please see Mr. Ted Heffner (or call at 610-797-6327) for more information regarding schedules and training.

Please join the parish for a hot drink and snack in the social hall, downstairs after Mass. This will resume every week as an important way to stay connected to each other. Please bring a snack to share keeping in mind that during Lent some people are cutting back on sweets. Consider bringing fruit, veggies, nuts, crackers, or cheese. Also, please remember to invite visitors to join the fun.
