Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Jul 30, 2023

Our Drexel Voyager senior group has been a great blessing for many of our parish members, and in August they are celebrating their 13th Anniversary!  Our seniors have formed a supportive sense of community through their monthly luncheons (often with speakers) at local restaurants, and other activities.  New members are always welcome to join.  The anniversary luncheon will be at Gladchuk’s Restaurant on Thursday 3 August, and you are asked to register by this weekend if you plan to attend.

       Our Knights of Columbus Council (and Katie’s Ladies Auxiliary) faithfully serve our parish in many different ways, and we are so grateful to both groups.  This weekend they celebrate the installation of new officers, and we congratulate Jonas Rebeiro as he is installed as Grand Knight, (and Irma Woerner as president of Katies Ladies.)   Please call the parish office if you would like more information about joining the Knights of Columbus (or Katie’s Ladies Auxiliary).

       We often list nearby workshops and retreats for deepening the everyday experience of marriage in the weekly bulletin.  If your marriage is troubled in any way at this time, please consult details about a “Retrouvaille” weekend coming up on Labor Day weekend.  A number of parish couples have found this weekend helpful in the past, and I urge you to be pro-active in confronting relationship difficulties as soon as possible, rather than waiting until it is too late to bring about deeper understanding and possible healing.

       For several years now, our Haiti partnership activity has included providing secondary school tuition aid to members of St. Hubert parish, and supporting the lunch program at a nearby elementary school.  If you wish to become a partner with children in the poorest nation in the Caribbean, please use the form on our website by this Monday to make your donation supporting students for the upcoming academic year.
