Before busying ourselves with the gift-givings of the season, let us take a moment to unpack some of the gifts of Our Lady as we discuss companionship, joy, gratitude, and her role as Mediatrix.

Year of St. Joseph
unnamed-3.png

ST. JOSEPH

The Year of

December 8, 2020 - December 8, 2021

Saint Joseph, patron saint of the unexpected,

How freely you stepped into the unknown.

With your unwavering yes,

Saint Joseph, dreamer of dreams,

How attuned your heart was, waking and sleeping,

To the promptings of angels.

Saint Joseph, nurturing father,

How openly you accepted your unconventional family,

Lighting the way for us, too, to embrace all.

Saint Joseph, there is still so much we don't know about you,

But maybe that is your gift to us,

That we may see in the father of Jesus a mystery

That sanctifies the hidden and untold in our own lives.

May we too, live our days in the holy shadow of your son. Amen.

PALM SUNDAY COLLECTION: APRIL 9-10th

Synod

SYNODAL PRAYER

Holy Spirit, we are gathered in the name of Jesus. As his gift to us, guide us; make Yourself at home in our hearts, our homes and churches. You who fill the world, Holy Spirit, fill our minds and hearts. Show us the way you desire to renew the Church and give us courage to walk it. Let us find our way to harmony and unity, truth and

self-knowledge. May we run the way together to a renewed and relevant church in the world and to eternal life.

ENGAGEMENT

The engagement session, led by trained facilitators, is on Sunday, April 10, from 1:15-3:15pm in the Parish Meeting Room.

A virtual session is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19, from 7-9:00pm. 

Lenten Food Drive

Updates 3/10: The response thus far has been overwhelming! We eclipsed our original plan of 500 pounds of food in ONE HOUR!

 

4/6: 1950 pounds! We are so close to the 2,000 pound benchmark! Thank you so much! 

FINAL UPDATE 4/15: WE DID IT! We are ecstatic to report that we eclipsed the ONE TON mark for food at the end of the collection. Initially, we set out to collect 500 pounds of food, but collected 4X that weight (a total of 2,002 pounds). Thank you for your support of this worthy cause!

Greg Pine Talk
2596820.jpg

IS HAPPINESS
EVEN POSSIBLE?

The Lord seems to promise us an abundant life if we follow after Him. And yet, the lives of Christians seem equally difficult and sad as the lives of their non-Christian contemporaries. So, what's the difference? Why bother with the Gospel?

In this talk, Fr. Gregory Pine will explore the question of human happiness and describe the role played by choice and prudence in securing it.

THURSDAY,
JULY 14 | 7-8:00pm
OLDE CHURCH

135 S. Sycamore Street, Newtown, Pa., 18940
