Happy July!

Some updates on what is happening this month at St Raymond…

We will be welcoming 7 families as guests for July and August.  We are partnering with The Interfaith Hospitality Network of NW Philadelphia for the month of July and August.  St. Raymond members will be provide meals for 2 of those 8 weeks as well as serve as “hosts” for over night.  There are opportunities to serve these sisters and brothers while they are staying in our former convent.  Please contact Arleen at 215-549-3760 or Sharron at 267-973-1600

The Bible Movie will continue on Monday nights at 7pm.  These gatherings (people of all ages and children are welcome, the evening is free) is a wonderful opportunity to get to know others.  Bring a friend – we watch one hour of the movie and share our own insights and thought.  All are welcome!

Father Chris will be preaching at the annual Novena to Our Lady of Mt Carmel July 8 to 16.  There is a mass each night at 7:30 (Rosary and Litany before Mass).  Join the cloistered sisters are Carmel for this annual novena – it is quite an experience of grace!

We will welcome Sr Jane Nesmith, SBS who will share her Rosary CD with us the weekend of July 6th & 7th.  Sr. Jane is a native of Philadelphia who works in Indiana.  Be sure to be with us and learn about her great work (and buy her CD for $10).

Remain committed to daily prayer.  Read a good spiritual book this summer (there are plenty for taking in the library in back of church).  Bring someone to Church…they are waiting for your invitation!
