Good News for September 23

The Church remembers the Italian Priest Padre Pio today. A man of great care for the sick and the poor, known as a great priest in the confessional who could read the souls of the people who came to him and often remind them of the sins they were not confessing (Father Chris can’t do this yet). St. Pio also experienced the stigmata, he had the wounds of Christ on his hands and feet. At this tough time in history, his encouragement to not worry should be welcomed by us all!

The Community Meeting is Tuesday, September 29th at 6pm for the Senior Apartments we hope to build on our property with a wonderful organization called Human Good. Father Chris asks that you join the ZOOM or call in to voice support, especially if you live in 19150 (Councilwoman Parker is most interested in the voices of these residents). If you wish to call in (please use a line that is toll free as it is a toll call), please dial: 1-301-715-8592, use Meeting ID: 948 9047 4775 and Passcode: 769243. If you have questions, please call Father Chris or send him an email.

Our school parking lot has been prepared for the COVID Testing that will be provided by Thomas Jefferson University starting Thursday, October 1st.

While not required, they will request insurance information as well. Testing will be done Thursday (11am to 6pm) and Saturday (11am to 4pm). Please spread the word and help end this pandemic!
