Previous Message:

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) these past months have been extremely difficult for everyone, especially the homeless and hungry.  Since attendance at Masses was prohibited during this time monetary donations were requested in lieu of food donations.  However, now that we are able to attend Mass food donations will be collected beginning on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 5:00 PM Mass and all Sunday Masses.

Listed below are the non-perishable food donations:

          • Canned tuna
          • Healthy snacks (e.g., tuna/crackers, crackers:  cheese crackers, peanut butter crackers, granola or protein bars, etc.)
          • Cases of water

Totes are available at each side door to deposit donations. Any questions please contact Dawn Ellis @ 215-679-2160

“One thing I ask of you:  Never be afraid of giving.
There is a deep joy in giving, since what we receive is much more than what we give.”
