Let us remember!

DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY CELEBRATION MASS ON FAYETTE STREET: In Celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday, April 27th, please join us at 11amfor yet another Mass on Fayette Street. Yes, it is the Sunday after Easter, and yes, it is the day after 56 children in Conshohocken receive the Eucharist for the first time. So wear your Easter finest and come help us celebrate those who, just the day before, made their First Holy Communion. “The quality of mercy is not strained, it droppeth as a gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed. It blesseth him that gives and him that takes”.(Shakespeare)
