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 Gloria Coverdale and Toni Kovolisky.
We also pray that those who have died will dwell forever in the Kingdom of heaven, especially Caroline A. Anastasia and Rosie Parmigiani.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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
