Interested in the Catholic Faith?
Do you know someone who does not have a church family and would like to belong to one, or who is not baptized and desires to be? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process into which an individual can enter in order to gain a relational experience with Jesus as well as with the community He joins. At St. David, RCIA sessions are held on Thursday evenings at 6:45PM-8:15PM in Rectory. The process is a “come and see” approach to learning about the Catholic Faith. Contact Sister Mary St. Mark or call the Rectory for more information regarding RCIA (215-657-0252) or learn more about the RCIA process.

Appropriate Dress for Mass:
Two factors should motivate the way we dress when coming to Mass: The respect we have for God and the sacred liturgy, and the respect we have for our neighbor who sits near us at Mass. This is an instance when love of God and neighbor are placed before our own comfort. We thank you for your outward display of respect for the real, divine presence of Christ our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament as shown by your respectful attire.
