Good News You Can Use/Looking Ahead

Aid for Friends
I would like to thank all those cooks out there who give of their valuable time and talent donating the many dinner trays that serve those in need and who are homebound.
Your generosity has put many a smile on a thankful heart. Along with our thank you I also have an urgent request to ask St. David parishioners to help us meet the demand of more needed trays during the summer months. We have a higher need during this time for those we serve. So in order to fill those requests we need your help even more now. For those who are not familiar with how to get the supplies. The trays are down stairs in  Father Curran Hall in the room next to the kitchen. From the Aid For Friends and those in need, we thank you.

World Meeting of Family Transportation
If you plan on attending the WMOF Adult / Youth Congress in September or any of the weekend events with the Pope,  be reminded that public transportation is encouraged as the best way to get to the Convention Center or the Benjamin Franklin Parkway events.  There will be virtually no automobile parking in Center City Philadelphia during the week of Sept 21st. Charter buses will be parked in areas with substantial walking distances anticipated. Hop aboard SEPTA, the region’s public transit system, for an easy and convenient way to get to downtown Philly by bus, trolley, subway or regional rail. Base cash fare for SEPTA bus, trolley, and subway is $2.25; transfers cost $1.00. Tokens are available for purchase and cost $3.60 for a two pack. Regional Rail fares vary by distance traveled. One Day passes, TrailPasses, and TransPasses (weekly and monthly) are also available if you plan a multiple-day visit to World Meeting of Family events.
