Prayers for the Sick and the Deceased

We ask that you keep in mind all our sick friends from our parish in need of our prayers, especially Mary Walsh and Gloria Coverdale.

We also pray that those who have died will dwell forever in the Kingdom of heaven, especially Michael Hnosko, Fran Hnosko, Sara Elvira Chillojallo Muñoz, and Deacon Joseph F. Sexton.

Please Note: We will keep the names of the sick in the church bulletin for 4 weeks.  To add a name to the sick list, please call the Parish Office (215-638-3625) or email Isabel Jaramillo (

This is the way we can easily overcome the countless difficulties we have to face day after day, which, after all, are part of our work: in meditation we find the strength to bring Christ. – St. Charles Borromeo

During inclement weather, always check the website for announcements of the closing and reopening of the Chapel.


If we wish to make any progress in the service of God we must begin every day of our life with new eagerness. We must keep ourselves in the presence of God as much as possible and have no other view or end in all our actions but the divine honor. — St. Charles Borromeo 

St. Charles Borromeo,
our holy and fascinating patron,
pray for us!


Let’s pray for each other!
