Beautiful Catholic Charities video View
For 60 years, Catholic Charities in Philadelphia has helped thousands of families and individuals in need, educated people with special needs, cared for elderly priests, and provided dignity to the sick and dying--all through, and only through, your generous support.
Please view this beautiful video for actual interviews of people helped by Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities representatives, members of our parish, will be speaking at the Masses on the weekend of 3/3--3/4 .
We ask you once again for your generous support.
"Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did to Me." Matt. 25:40
CONGRATULATIONS, MONSIGNOR! View
On Tuesday, May 22, Monsignor Beach received The Sourin Award from the Catholic Philopatrian Literary Institute (Philo), a philanthropic organization of Philadelphia whose mission includes supporting Catholic education.
It was a wonderful evening, with nearly 250 people in attendance, including a large group from St. Jude.
Monsignor was recognized because "by word, act, and example, he embodies our Catholic faith. He is a wonderful and shining example of a good and faith-filled priest, but also a great promoter of the Church and inspiration to other Catholics." We are very blessed to have him in our parish!
If you haven't yet done so, be sure to congratulate him!
