If you or someone you know would be interested in volunteering as a classroom aide in our Religious Education Program, we are still in need of a couple aides on Wednesday afternoons (4:45-6:00pm). It is a great way to participate in the parish's Stewardship Program. So think about it yourself, or ask an older sibling, grandparent, neighbor, etc. Contact, Tara Penza at

AT A GLANCE...…………………
Congratulations to Jeanette Breck, who received the St. Timothy Award from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia this Spring. The St. Timothy Award is the highest recognition given by the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry, and is presented to young men or women in their junior or senior year of high school for outstanding leadership and service to their church and community. Jeanette has provided a positive example of faith and love for others in our Religious Education Program for over five years and we congratulate and thank her!
We sincerely thank these good Stewards of our parish for sharing their time, talent and faith with our young people!
