Guide Book & Directory Advertising Opportunities
We are in the process of updating our annual Guide Book & Directory for the church. This book will contain everything pertinent to our church: the various ministries, organizations, committees, activities, functions and events plus a complete directory of all members. This book is being provided and direct-mailed to each family at no cost to our church, and it is again being subsidized by local businesses that advertise. If you own or manage a business and would like to find out about advertising in our book, please call the Parish Office at 610-444-4364….Recent survey results by Guide Book Publishing show that 92.1% of families would rather patronize a Guide Book & Directory advertiser over a non-advertiser!

Jubilee Year: Volunteers Needed for Planning
Various committees continue to plan activities in anticipation of the parish Jubilee celebration in 2019. As we develop these plans, we find that we need additional help in two important areas: Liturgical Celebrations and Community Social Activities. Both of these committees are looking at a number of events to be held throughout the Jubilee year. Additional volunteers are needed now to help develop these events for the parish. No previous experience is necessary – just a willingness to help. If you are interested and would like to participate, everyone is welcome. Please contact Candy in the parish office at 610-444-4364.
