Monsignor Duncan will hear confessions each evening from 6:00 PM until 6:55 PM. All Sacramental Candidates are required to attend the closing evening as part of their Retreat in preparation of the reception of their particular sacrament. All children in Saint Mary School and PREP and home schooled, as well as our High School Youth Group, are kindly asked to attend either Sunday or Monday evening.

Saint Mary Parish will host Megan Cokeley, Director of the Archdiocese Office for the New Evangelization, who will present Five Keys of Unbound on November 6th from 7 to 9pm in Hedge Hall. This presentation is a simple process of prayer that will help you unleash the liberating power of the Gospel into your life and find greater freedom. It can be especially helpful for situations such as: relationship problems, habitual sin, chronic anger, fear, sadness, or other areas of life where you feel "stuck" and unable to move forward. This presentation is for everyone and is free and open to the public. For more information or to RSVP contact phillyevang.org/events.

ALL SOULS WEEKEND
On November 2nd and 3rd, we will celebrate All Souls Remembrance Weekend. We invite all members of the parish to bring a framed picture of their loved ones to Mass with them, and place them on the tables which will be set up in the front of the church by the altar. All photos will be incensed during Mass as a sign of our love and a reminder that they will be with us always. You may take your photo home with you at the conclusion of Mass.

Thank you so very much for your love, prayers and support for our Capital Campaign - Legacy of Faith; Celebrating 100 Years. This is a spiritual and a historical restoration project for our shared church home. We need every member of our faith community to participate in the spiritual and temporal work of the church. Would you be able to share this great news with your family and friends? Perhaps you know some business leaders and/or professionals that you visit on a regular basis that may help in this important project. Would you pass along to them a brochure and a pledge card? We are very close in reaching our goal!!! However, we already know that our costs will exceed the $2 M goal. Contractors always find problems that need to be addressed. Let us work together in Sealing our Future! Click the logo above for more information.
