Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Father Chris and the Parish Staff continue to pray for you each day. We know many of you have loved ones and friends who have been sick with this virus. Some have passed. Most have recovered. Many of you are out of work and worried, we know that! Some are anxious, bored or even frustrated. We hear you and we entrust you to the Lord from whom all blessings flow. If you want to speak with one of us during this difficult time, please call us (215-549-3760) or send us an email, we are here for you!
Join us for this week’s St. Raymond LIVE. In addition to joining on Father Chris’s Facebook Page, you can now join via ZOOM.

While we all greatly enjoy the experience of worshipping thru Live Stream, we all miss gathering with one another and especially to receive Holy Communion. We hunger for Jesus and want to feast on his Body & Blood. After much conversation, the Parish Staff and I believe we have come up with a procedure that will allow our community to feast of the Body & Blood of Christ!
Caring for Friends, formerly known as Aid for Friends, is a wonderful organization that provides healthy home cooked meals to our seniors who live alone. We have been preparing and serving meals for ten years and it is a blessing to our elders. During this pandemic, we have a need for MORE MEALS. We provide the containers. You cook, package and freeze the meals and then bring them to the Rectory (9:30am and 4:30pm Monday thru Friday during quarantine). If are able to deliver meals, using appropriate precautions, we welcome that as well. Start with information HERE. To arrange pick up of containers, email Arleen.
Next week will be our last sessions for our Small Groups. Starting Wednesday, May 6th we will have Bible Study at 7pm. You can join via Live Stream (where we stream our Sunday Mass) or join a Zoom Group (video or simply with the phone) that will watching together and having a virtual conversation about the Bible Study (when we break for questions). If you would like to be part of a small group watching together (virtually or over the phone) please email Minta Brown. Father Chris would like to include a few “panelists” each week who will ask questions and assist in presenting the Bible Study. Interested? Contact Richara and let her know to include you!
