FORTY HOURS EUCHARISTIC DEVOTION: On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, October 28, 29 & 30, Saint Mary Parish will celebrate its Annual Forty Hours Eucharistic Devotion in our beautiful church each evening at 7:00PM. Confessions will be heard at 6:00PM until 6:55PM. Father Scottston Brentwood, O. de M. (A Friar of Our Lady of Mercy) will be our guest homilist. Father Scott is the Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in the Overbrook Farms section of Philadelphia. Please mark your calendar. All students preparing for the Sacraments are required to attend the closing ceremony as part of their required retreat. Students not preparing for a Sacrament are to attend either Sunday or Monday evening with their parents. The Hospitality Committee has graciously offered to host a light refreshment reception at the conclusion of 40 Hours on Tuesday evening in Hedge Hall. All are welcome!
This weekend there will be a second collection for the victims of Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael which recently impacted the people of the Carolinas, Florida and Georgia. Please be as generous as you are able.
ANNUAL CENSUS and PARISH APPEAL:
A mailing was sent to households on the Census and Appeal. This Census and Appeal is important to us here at Saint Mary Parish because its purpose is two-fold: One, it helps us to update our Parish records and Two, the Parish Appeal will help us to continue to maintain our 22 acres of property and 6 buildings in a manner you have come to expect and deserve. You will be happy to know that our Parish has ascertained a new Data Software Program. We are switching from Parish Data System (PDS) to Servant Keeper. Servant Keeper will allow us, on a parish level, to obtain much more information, quickly print reports and schedule lay ministers of the Mass in an efficient manner. Thank you so much for your support and cooperation.
