Remembrance Bricks
Spring is upon us and it’s the perfect time to consider getting a paver in remembrance of your family and loved ones. We continue to add pavers to our Prayer Garden. Our goal is to add more pavers every three to four months, as we collect new requests. There are forms on our website and in the rectory office for your convenience. This is a wonderful way to pay tribute to your loved ones. Details and information can be obtained by calling the rectory and asking for Maureen. Cost is $110 for a four by eight inch brick and $200.00 for an eight by eight brick.

Sponsor-A-Student
You can assist a family in the meeting of the tuition of a Queen of Angels School Student. You may do so in part or in whole. Please consider making a one time or an ongoing contribution to assist a family who desires a Catholic Education for their child but can use extra help.

Catholic Charities:
Families or individuals in need can seek help at Catholic Charity Family Service Centers. Service centers provide the needy and low income with a number of services. A sampling of what is offered includes very limited rent or utility bill assistance, food pantries and clothing cupboards, housing referrals, and case management services. Some of the self-sufficiency and personal development resources include job placement assistance, ESL classes, GED preparation, and employment training.  Catholic Charity Family Services is located at  227 North 18th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, (215) 854-7000.
