Celebrant: Fr. Zambelli


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.

All who are concerned about the future of St. Stephen's parish are requested to meet after Mass. Please come downstairs for a brief meeting of about 5 minutes. This will not take much of your time and it is very important that you attend. The meeting has to do with the state of communications with the Chancery about the future of St. Stephen of Hungary. It will explain what each of us must and may do to contribute concretely to its continuation. 

All people are invited to stay for a snack and a cup of coffee. This week Father Connolly has agreed to give us a Lenten Meditation to feed our souls as we feed our bodies. He will speak for about 15 minutes on the subject of his choice. Father is giving generously of his time for our spiritual good. Plan to stay if possible.
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, cheese or something else.  Also, please remember to invite visitors to join the fun. 
We need several people to help with set up and clean up each week. Please talk to Tessa DeMaster if you are willing to help.  

All are invited to the DeMaster Farm on Divine Mercy Sunday for a time of prayer and fun. On Sunday, April 3, we will have a potluck lunch, an egg hunt for the children and time to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet as a community. More details will be posted in the coming weeks. Save the Date!
