      Parish Information Update
       
       In addition to the parish bulletin and the parish website, there are two additional means of communicating all the good works which you, the PRIMARY RESOURCES of our new parish, are accomplishing.  The Twitter account, managed by Ken Lanning, is readily available for our “followers”; simply contact Ken at (215) 485-7906, for information to be communicated via Twitter.  We are  maintaining Comcast Channel 99, the familiar Community News Channel, for communicating parish information; simply e mail Amanda McClain at amcclain@holyfamily.edu.
                                        

      “Your Shepherd’s Thoughts”            August 31, 2014
       
      Have you ever wondered about the white posts near the Rectory at our North Campus?
         These 14 posts once held each of the Stations of the Cross, procured by the Knights of Columbus Council # 4765 as a donation from Msgr. Duncan.  Originally from the original St. Charles Borromeo Church, they were used for this devotion until a few months ago, as they were removed due to irreparable deterioration. Eventually, these posts will hold new Stations of the Cross.
           As Summer is virtually over, I am feeling excited about the beginning of more parish activities.  In combining the various activities of the former St. Elizabeth Ann Seton and St. Thomas Aquinas Parishes, our new Parish has MUCH to offer, and I strongly encourage your coming together to form strong bonds with fellow parishioners who strongly encourage your parishioners, who will come to be bonded.  The opening Mass for our Parish is scheduled for Saturday, September 13 at 5:00PM.  You are all encouraged to come as we formally celebrate our faith community at the Lord’s Table, and to enjoy refreshments and fellowship in the Parish Hall following Mass.  Sunday, September 14 marks new beginnings, too!    
           PREP  begins on September 14  with the 9:30AM Mass followed by classes from 10:30AM –11:50AM.  Many thanks to our DRE, Jacob Marquart, OSF for his hard work in co-ordinating PREP for our new Parish.  May thanks too, to you parents, first teachers, for teaching the Catholic faith to your children,  and to our dedicated catechists, who selflessly help the children to know our faith.  “Breakfast Sunday” begins anew on September 14.  While a tradition of the former St. Thomas Aquinas Parish for at least 11 years, our new parish will offer breakfast “All You Can Eat” at $5.00 per adult, $2.00 per child over 5 years of age, on the 2nd Sunday of each month from September to May, 8AM through 11AM  The site will rotate between our North and South Campuses beginning with the North Campus.  I thank newcomers to help in cooking and cleaning and cleaning up.  Take advantage of another “bonding” opportunity.
      Peace.
      Father Mike
