    World Meeting of Families Prayer

    World Meeting of Families Prayer

    God and Father of us all, in Jesus, your Son and our Savior, you have made us your sons and daughters in the family of the Church. May your grace and love help our families in every part of the world be united to one another in fidelity to the Gospel. May the example of the Holy Family, with the aid of your Holy Spirit, guide all families, especially those most troubled, to be homes of communion and prayer and to always seek your truth and live in your love. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us. World Meeting of Families — Philadelphia 2015

    Faith Formation Sunday

    Faith Formation Sunday

    Hello everyone – For those who do not know me, my name is Gina Sweeney.  I have been a member of SJB for 23 years & I am going to take the Meakim’s place in running the Family Fellowship group for this year. I have older grown children & twins who are going into 3rd Grade at Crooked Billet.  My hope in having Family Fellowship move forward is that as a group we get to know each other and support each other, while helping our children feel welcome and nurtured in their faith in our parish community. Knowing most of our parish children come from 3 school districts (Upper Moreland, Centennial &Hatboro Horsham) & also having many Spanish families that worship here Saturday evenings, I think it is important for them & us to get to know as many people in our parish as possible. The Archdiocese will be looking at the parishes in our area & looking for vibrant, active parishes as the ones to keep open. In that light, I hope to meet once a month for a Family Fellowship Mass. We would sit in a reserved section in the front of church as a group. The time of Mass will change each month depending on what is happening in the parish. As the Meakims had started, I plan on still meeting as a group before of after the monthly Mass, supporting our parish ministries with Thanksgiving & Christmas collections, working the Fall Festival with a Lemonade Stand, etc.  Any new ideas are encouraged & welcomed.

    We are also looking to start the Youth Choir again. Mrs. Q needs to know that there is enough interest to even begin the process of starting the choir. The day & time of practice are still being worked out, but 2 ideas are between the PREP sessions on Tuesdays & between Masses on Sundays.  Beyond that, there is a monthly Mass where the choir would sing. If your child(ren) would possibly be interested, we need you to call the Faith Formation office ASAP.

    The first Mass for the year is Sunday, 9/7/14 at 9:00 a.m. Please come out & in addition to bringing a breakfast food to share, if possible please help our SVDP Society & bring one item for the Parish Pantry or for their Back to School Collection. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the 7th!
