Friday Lenten Prayer 27 March 2020
Today we would have presented the living stations of the cross. We have compiled some old photos, that were sent to us by a parishioner, some stock photos and the recording of the narration (usually read by one of our teens) from the publisher of the script and music we normally use, into a video. The video will have some parts where the screen will go black and you will hear music. This is a time of reflection. You may close your eyes if this is distracting to you and reopen them when the narration begins again. 
Our hope is that you are able to view this video and continue to feel the connection to not only our parish community, but the love that Jesus showed us by dying on the cross, and continues to show for us even today.

At Home Weekend Prayer
Because we cannot gather in worship for several weeks, I invite you (as individuals or as groups of people at home) to use the time you might have come to Mass and spend it in prayer.  See the resources below for the appropriate weekend.  You might:
  • Play this video as a  Pre-Mass Meditation   (about a 6 minute video)
  • Play the Shofar
  • Read the scripture readings assigned for this weekend and share your reflections.
  • Use my homily included here on video for added inspiration.
  • And then pray together the Intercessions for this weekend, concluding with the Lord’s Prayer.
  • Close with Come Home
This time of reflection at home can keep us all united in prayer as the Body of Christ until we can assemble again in our “Temple” on Opossumtown Pike!

Join Our Parish

 

Saint Katharine Drexel Parish pledges to be a Eucharist-centered, welcoming community, forming loving disciples, giving selflessly, in realization of the Kingdom of God.

Pastor’s Welcome

Our parish Mission Statement presents us with an exciting and daunting challenge: to form a modern Christian community in an ancient faith– to become the Living Body of Christ in a secular society– to embody a Catholic tradition in a pluralistic world. Thanks be to God that the Holy Spirit is promised to us for strength and guidance.

We have an inspiring role model in Katharine Drexel. She is recognized as a saint because she was a woman of worldly wealth who embodied Christ and the Catholic tradition for the poor, the outcast, and the forgotten of society during the 20th century. Our task as a faith community is to discern how we will do the same during the 21st century.

Together as a parish, we are charting a course to follow Christ as Katharine did. Following her example, it is in worship and prayer that we discover strength for the journey. It is a privilege for me to lead you on that pilgrimage of faith. If you are looking for a spiritual home, we hope that you will consider joining us!

Fifth Sunday of Lent

I know that for many of you, life has become more complicated, trying to work from home and take care of kids at the same time.  Some have lost jobs; and others are isolated in apartments (at places like Homewood), restricted from leaving or even going out for a...

Fourth Sunday of Lent

I’m sure you are experiencing the present time in our lives as very strange—as am I. At our Liturgy Planning Committee meeting this past week, we were discussing whether we should order Easter flowers. At our Pastoral Council meeting, we were wondering how we will pay...

Third Sunday of Lent
