There is a deep joy in giving, since what we receive is much more than what we give.”

Mother of Mercy House – Gift Card Donations Needed

“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done”.” – Proverbs 19:17

MOTHER OF MERCY HOUSE

The effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted on everyone.  It has especially affected the homeless.  Since all Masses have been cancelled there is no way to get food donations from our parish to the people we have been supporting through the Mother of Mercy House.

In an effort to assist with this problem, and in keeping with social distancing, it has been requested that we provide Giant grocery store gift cards and/or checks (payable to:  Mother of Mercy House).  Your donation need only be in the amount that you would have spent for the purchase of food products.  All donations received will be forwarded to the Mother of Mercy House.

Donations can be sent to the following address: Dawn Ellis | 980 Macoby Creek Way | Pennsburg, PA 18073

Message from Fr. Anthony

Dear Parishioners,

We are living in an anxious world. We are living in a world that very much needs to know that Christ in present among us. During this time of unknown hardship, our parish continues to be a source of love and support by making Christ’s presence known through prayer and private daily Mass. Beginning this Sunday we will be livestreaming our Sunday Masses.

As you can imagine our parish financial needs will continue during this challenging time. Our utility bills and many other expenses will not cease. For those whose means will allow, this may be a good time to consider Online Giving. In addition, if you contribute using envelopes, your continued support through regular collections is appreciated. You may mail your donations to the parish office or place them in the box near the altar on Sunday mornings until the celebration of public Mass resumes.

 

You may also make contributions without setting up an account securely through this PayPal link.

 

I am truly grateful for your generous support and prayerful contributions. May the Lord continue to bless us and give us peaceful souls and good health in these difficult times.

God’s Peace,

Fr. Anthony
