Let us all continue to pray for the Pope's safety as he comes to New York and then to Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Families. Pope Francis's Itinerary in the US
Unfortunately with so much going on in our town this weekend, we had to cancel our Family Gathering Event that was scheduled for Saturday Evening.
We will still be celebrating this historic visit at all of our Masses this weekend and in a special way at the 10:30am Mass.
All children attending the 10:30am Mass will receive a band with a special message from Pope Francis that reads "Christ is Knocking at the Door of Your Heart". These inspiring words are a reminder to all of us that Jesus wants to enter deeply into our lives. Jesus wants to share in our joys and in our hurts and give us the strength to love and have hope.
