Encountering the Word with Jeff Cavins

This week’s Encountering the Word video for the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time focuses on the Bread of Life discourse found in John 6. What if Jesus’ words and the Church teaching on the Eucharist are true? What if that really is God? Jeff Cavins encourages us to reflect on the simplicity of Christ’s words in this week’s Gospel. The readings are:

First Reading: 1 Kings 19:4-8
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9
Second Reading: Ephesians 4:30—5:2
Alleluia: John 6:5
Gospel: John 6:41-51

The Catholic Eucharist in the Bible Part 2

 

Living Your Faith

Come Be Refreshed, Jesus is Waiting

Jesus is present in the Blessed Sacrament in St. David’s chapel from Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to closing at 8:00 pm.  Can you come and spend some time with Him?

Come and read a spiritual book, pray the Rosary, or just sit and be still with Jesus.

Adorers are welcome anytime, however if
you can commit to a Holy Hour, our greatest
needs are Tuesdays 8 AM & 1 PM, Fridays 11 AM & 5 PM.

We are also trying to get at least 2 adorers per hour, so if another hour is more convenient for you, please contact Paula Warnalis 215-441-0334. Jesus is waiting for you!

RCIA Program at St. David

If you or any one you know would like to hear more about what the Catholic Faith teaches
about who Jesus is, we invite you to call us to inquire.

This inquiry gives you the opportunity to ask questions about the Catholic Faith and helps you to know if God is calling you to a deeper awareness about what God has fully revealed.

If you were not baptized, baptized into another faith denomination, or baptized Catholic, but have not received First Eucharist or Confirmation, you are invited to please call the rectory at 215-657-0252 and speak with Father Connors, or call the Religious Ed.
