HVAC for CHAPEL:
I am sorry to inform you that our HVAC unit that provides both heat and air conditioning for our beautiful chapel has died. According to Archdiocesan policy, our Business Office received three bids for the new unit. We are kindly asking for a few of our parishioners to help with this expense. Would you please consider helping us? We really need to move forward on this project. Whatever you can afford is a beautiful gift to God. If you would like to know the TOTAL COST of this project please call the Parish Office Center and ask for Mary Beth O'Connor who serves our parish as both the Business Manager and the Director of Operations. Thanks so very much for your assistance.

CHURCH INTERNET and COMMAND CENTER:
We are almost there in reaching our GOAL to provide hard wiring to our Church building for internet capability and a live stream command center. We are seeking the final remaining costs for this important project. If you would like to be part of this project and see it to completion, please contact Mary Beth O'Connor, Director of Business & Operations in the Parish Office Center.

The Bishops of all the Dioceses of Pennsylvania have stated that the Dispensation to be excused from Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation because of the recent pandemic will be lifted on Sunday, August 15. Therefore, all Baptized Catholics are to attend Mass on Sunday or Saturday afternoon (Masses before 4 PM on Saturdays do not count as Anticipated Masses for Sunday) beginning on the weekend of August 14-15. Those who are unable to attend Mass because of health reasons have always been dispensed from the obligation. If you are well, Sacramental confession is necessary in order to receive Holy Communion if you have missed Mass through your own fault.

PARISH OFFICE CENTER: The Parish Office Center is open for all Parish Business. Hours: Monday through Friday from 9 AM until 5 PM. Unfortunately, now until Labor Day, there are no weekend office hours available. You may, however, see me or Deacon Don after one of our weekend Masses.

SUMMER BOOK CLUB:
Our next summer book club will be held on Tuesday, August 17, 2021 from 7:00 to 8:30 PM in Annex Room #1. The book is We’ll Never Tell Them by Fiorella De Maria. Kristjana, a nurse in England, flees twenty-first-century London in order to avoid a decision about her future. Kristjana’s cancer patient, Leo Hampton, recounts his mother’s life—her upbringing in colonial Malta, her
education in Edwardian England, and her service as a volunteer nurse during World War I. Captivated by the story of Liljana Hampton, Kristjana is pulled into the agonies and the ecstasies of a previous generation, which almost seem more real to her than those of her own life. Through her vicarious experience of another woman’s personal history, Kristjana discovers the secret of fearlessly embracing her future. Purchase and read the book on your own and then join us to discuss! For more information contact Linda Nichols at 215-256-4941 or
