Pastor’s Corner

My Dear Parishioners,

In our bulletin this weekend, you will find a flyer containing the names, photos & biographies of those who have accepted recent nominations to our Pastoral Council. The information is also accessible on the home page of the OLA website.We hope this information will be helpful to you as we begin our election process over the next few weeks.

Last Monday, we celebrated our Annual Parish May Procession. Unfortunately, the weather was rainy and damp so we had to move everything inside the church. Nevertheless, it was a beautiful celebration. I was so edified by how many people turned out and grateful for the participation of all of our young children. Many thanks to all who helped to plan this event, as well as the ice-cream social that followed.

This weekend, we want to extend to Fr. Woodeshick our prayerful best wishes as he celebrates his 50th Anniversary of ordination to the Priesthood. We are grateful for his 50 years of service to the Church as well as his humble service and ministry in our parish. Father Woodeshick did not want any special celebration for his anniversary but I would ask you to please remember him in your thoughts and prayers. I invite you to thank and congratulate him when you see him. Father Woodeshick, thank you for your many years of dedicated service. May God continue to bless you and grant you many more years!

As a reminder, this Sunday we will have our Annual Pancake Breakfast sponsored by our Knights of Columbus. All are cordially invited to Assumption Hall from 7:30 AM to 1 PM for a delicious breakfast. A free-will offering will be taken and all proceeds will benefit our parish.

We began our Baby Bottle Drive last week for Mother’s Home in Darby, PA. Baby bottles are still available at the entrances of the church to take them home with you. We will collect them on the weekend of Father’s Day. We thank you for considering participating in this drive and for helping mothers who are in need.

Thanks again for all you do to keep our parish strong and may the Risen Christ continue to give you and your families His joy and peace!

Love and Prayers,

Father Carey
