St. David Men of Malvern, each year we look forward to the Our Lady of Lourdes retreat at Malvern. Plan now on spending this special time with God in 2015. For over 100 years, the Malvern Retreat House has been providing opportunities for men, women and families to engage in a deep personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It is through this retreat experience that a person is refreshed and renewed to heed the gospel message. A retreat provides the necessary sacred space and time for God to transform us into living authentic discipleship.  Join the men of St. David Parish for the weekend of June 26th to 28nd for their Malvern retreat.

Statues for Our Adoration Chapel
For some time I have been attempting to place statues of the Blessed Mother and St. Joseph in our Adoration Chapel. If any one is interested in donating money towards acquiring these statues, please contact Father Connors at the rectory. A dedication plaque will be placed on the statue(s) of those wishing it. The cost depends on what we receive in part or in whole. Thank you!

Donate and Save at the Same Time!
With each scrip gift card you purchase through School or Church, a percentage of the amount purchased is donated back to our School or our Church. Please check out information about hours and locations for scrip purchase above. I thank you, Father Connors.

World Meeting of Families-Philadelphia 2015 Announces Launch of Volunteer Registration

 

The World Meeting of Families announced that its highly anticipated online volunteer registration is now officially open to the public. With more than 10,000 volunteers needed for the World Meeting of Families Congress (September 22-25) and Papal Visit (September 26- 27), individuals 18 years of age and older can now register at  http://worldmeeting2015.volunteerhub.com/ for the opportunity to play a crucial role in this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Currently at launch, there are more than 100 volunteer opportunities throughout the week of the World Meeting of Families, including opportunities related to the Festival of Families and Papal Mass. More volunteer options will likely be added upon the announcement of a formal itinerary for Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia by the Vatican. That announcement is anticipated in early summer.
