PASTOR’S CORNER

January 24, 2021

 

May Jesus Christ, the way the eternal life, be with you!

           This past Wednesday, our country witnessed the transition of leadership in Washington, D.C. As President Biden takes office, let us pray for his leadership, decision making, goal setting, and strength to restore healing to our country. No matter what political party we are affiliated with, we have spiritual duty to pray for our leaders. We pray that President Biden’s leadership will be for the good of our country.

      Again, I want to thank everyone for your Stewardship to our parish. Your response to our parish of faith, devotion, charity, kindness, support and treasure is commendable. I am so grateful for all you do for our parish. May we always keep our parish, and every member of our parish, in our daily prayers.

      While the coronavirus continues to spread, we still look to hope and solace that the vaccine will get to everyone. I understand these are some skeptic’s about  taking the vaccine, but they have proven to be effective, even with that new viruses showing their horns. We are reminded by Pope Francis that taking the vaccine is also moral responsibility. May we continue to pray for the success of the vaccine.

      This week we hear the scriptures from Mass telling us about Jesus’ ministry, mission, and call. He is continuing the theme from John the Baptist to repent and believe in the Gospel, His call is a call of belief, discipleship, and spreading the Gospel everywhere we go. May we listen, discern, and act on how God is calling us to do his will.

      ~ Peace and Blessings, Msgr. Britto

MEN’S CONFERENCE

SATURDAY MARCH 6, 2021

Men are invited to join Catholic men from throughout the Archdiocese for a day focused on fellowship and ways to live your faith everyday. The 13th Annual Archdiocesan Catholic Men’s Conference will be held on Saturday march 6, 2021. The Man Up Philly volunteer team is finalizing their plans for the 2021 Conference and they have a fantastic line-up of speakers confirmed. Given the current environment, their focus is working to find ways to safely gather. They are currently evaluating multiple options from smaller gatherings in local parishes to larger gatherings in local high schools, and if not feasible, an all virtual conference via a live webcast.
