Following Christ is a seven week journey designed to help people grow in friendship and union with God. This course guides people in how to live as a Catholic disciple of Jesus Christ in today’s world based on basic disciplines and truths that have been practiced by Christians from the time of the early Church.
Weekly sessions include a prayer time, a short inspiring video, and small group discussion. Gathering each Thursday from January 26th to March 9th, the group will meet at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 2130 Franklin Avenue. Cost is free.
Sponsored by Marian Council #3753 of the Knights of Columbus, the OLPH Evangelization Team and the Archdiocese Office for the New Evangelization.
The Flame of Love Holy Hour
The Flame of Love (FOL) is Jesus Himself, who desires to empower faithful souls to combat the evils of sin, lukewarmness, and indifference. The FOL Movement revives tepid souls enabling them to embrace: Daily Mass and Rosary, Eucharistic Adoration, Holy Hours, and Fasting. The devotion is church approved and has been spreading throughout the United States since 2013. Saving souls is the mission of the Flame of Love. We host a weekly FOL Holy Hour of Reparation in the chapel each Friday from 1 PM to 2 PM. For more information please call Deacon Ron Kelley or Julie Kelley at 610-544-0386.
The FOL Pilgrim Virgin Statue is now available to visit your home for a week! Please prayerfully consider inviting Our Lady into your home. Testimonies of peace, comfort, healing and hope abound with those who have opened their door to the FOL Pilgrim Virgin Statue. More information about this Devotion is available in the Flame of Love Pilgrim Virgin Statue Binder that accompanies the statue. The Flame of Love Prayer Book is also provided for your private prayer time. To reserve your week, please use this “Sign Up Genius” link or contact Julie Kelley at 610-544-0386.
National Eucharistic Revival
Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez announcing the launch of the National Eucharistic Revival in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia on June 19, 2022, the Solemnity of Corpus Christi.
ALL Masses Are in the Main Church.
(Live-Streamed via Facebook and Parish Website):
Mass intentions are available for both weekday & weekend Masses. In addition, we also have Mass intentions available for Holy Day Masses. Remember that Mass intentions can be for the living or deceased.
OLPH Memorial Society:
For a minimum donation of $15 someone is enrolled into the Memorial Society. The 9:00 AM Mass every first Friday is for “All Those Enrolled in the OLPH Memorial Society” Those who are enrolled into the society receive a special Memorial enrollment card with padded folder.
Additional Memorials Available:
I know that at this time someone can have the sanctuary candle in the church and the chapel burn in memory of someone or for a specific intention. I would like to expand the memorials to include the following: Altar Bread, Altar Wine, Chapel Floral Arrangement (live), Church Floral Arrangement (live). More details about the minimum donation for each of these items in the near future. Again you would receive a card to give to the family indicating that the Altar Bread (wine, arrangement etc.) for the week of __/__/__ was given in memory of (or for the intention of) XXX by XXX. These memorials can be for the living or deceased.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. James E. Goerner
