Archbishop Pérez statement on July 4th shootings in Phila and Highland Park, Illinois

Statement of Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez Regarding 4th of July Shootings in Philadelphia and Highland Park, Illinois

Yesterday was perhaps the darkest 4th of July in our collective memory. Just hours after we learned of lives being intentionally extinguished by a gunman at a parade in Illinois, violence struck at home in Philadelphia with multiple police officers being shot in the line of duty as the fireworks display began on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.

Civic celebrations like the commemoration of our country’s birth are meant to unify our richly diverse populace. They prompt us to reflect on the lofty goal of preserving and protecting freedom, dignity, equality, and opportunity for all of our brothers and sisters.

Yesterday, death, disfigurement, fear, and panic draped a heavy pall over our already wounded and struggling nation. Our collective mettle is being tested over and over again. Evil acts and senseless loss of life have become all too common features of our landscape.

In my recent Independence Day message, I said that our American spirit shines brightest when we treat our neighbors with dignity and respect. In the wake of further pain, confusion, and sadness, we must act. Words alone are not enough. Acts of kindness and charity, no matter the size, are contagious. Let’s work together and mend the tears in the fabric of our nation’s soul.

I ask all people of goodwill to pray that God will strengthen our efforts, bring comfort to those in mourning, and place our law enforcement officers and first responders under the mantle of His protection.

Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez, D.D.

Archbishop of Philadelphia

2019 Adult Faith Formation Lenten Series and Soup Supper

We are happy to announce that during the Lenten Season, our Parish will be having a Soup Supper and Lenten Series for the adults of the Parish. These sessions will be held on four Wednesday evenings during Lent, beginning on Wednesday March 20th and continuing on March 27th, April 3rd, and April 10th. The Soup Supper will begin at 6:00 PM and it will be served until 6:40 PM in the Monsignor Woods Hall.

Following the Soup Supper, from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM in the Monsignor Woods Hall, there will be a Lenten Series entitled No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk through Christ’s Passion. The series is a presentation made available from Ascension Press and the speaker, via DVD, is Doctor Edward Sri. Filmed on location in the Holy Land, No Greater Love is a five-part video series that reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. We will study and enter into four parts of this video series. While engaging in this study, we will walk step-by-step with Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary. Author Edward Sri guides us through the last hours of Christ’s life in this biblical pilgrimage. Every step of the way, biblical experts reveal how Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ’s suffering and death. With these insights, we can come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s immeasurable and unconditional love which will allow us to draw closer to Jesus.

In this study, we will discover: Click here to read more.
