November 11th: Tolling of the Bells Honoring Those Who Served in the First World War

NOVEMBER 11th: TOLLING OF THE BELLS

Saint Frances Cabrini Parish Community will toll our Church bells on Sunday November 11th at 11:00 AM in remembrance of all who served our country in the First World War.

We are pleased to share the following letter from Bob Harvie, Chairman of the Falls Township Board of Supervisors:

Most Reverend Church Official,

I am writing, on behalf of the Falls Township Board of Supervisors, to ask your cooperation in acknowledging a major historic event and reminding our community of the necessity of world peace. As I am sure you are aware, November 11 is Veteran’s Day, where we honor all veterans who have served our nation, in times of war and peace. However, the original intent of that holiday was to mark the end of World War One. On November 11, 1918, an armistice was signed which ended what was, at that time, the worst war in human history. It was a war that led to the deaths of over 10 million people worldwide, including over 116,000 Americans. It was a war that

would lead directly to World War Two, which saw a death toll between 60 and 100 million, and to the communist revolution in Russia, which would inevitably lead to the Cold War and all the violence, fear and mistrust associated with that conflict.

This November 11 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of that horrible war and we are asking houses of worship in our community to help us honor those who served and remind all of us of the lasting effects of war. Enclosed you will find a copy of a proclamation passed unanimously by the Falls Township Board of Supervisors at our October 16 meeting. The proclamation was circulated around the nation by the United States World War One Centennial Commission, and Falls Township was proud to issue it on behalf of our citizens. As you can see, the proclamation asks churches, such as yours, to toll their bells at 11am local time, to mark the time when the war officially ended. We understand that this November 11 happens to fall on a Sunday, and that 11am may conflict with your regular services. We view this bell tolling as a chance to remind ourselves of the fundamental benefits of peace, and respectfully ask you to give our request every consideration.

We thank you for your dedication to our community, and wish you sincere blessings for many more years of continued service to Falls Township.

Sincerely,

Bob Harvie

Chairman, Falls Township Board of Supervisors

All Parents of School-Aged Children! Important Meeting Thursday 10/18 7:00pm Monsignor Woods Hall

Dear Parents,

     With a continuing desire to guide and instruct our parish children in their formation in our Catholic faith, and most especially in their relationship with Jesus, we will be hosting a special gathering for parents of children in our PREP and our Holy Family Regional Catholic School this Thursday evening, October 18th at 7:00 PM in the Monsignor Woods Hall.

     The purpose of our coming together is to engage in a conversation of how parents and the parish, working together as partners, can reach the hearts of our parish children, and by so doing, look into our own hearts as we endeavor to follow Jesus. Our theme is “Opening Your Heart to Reach Your Child’s Heart.” We are pleased to say that Audrey Wilson, our Director of Parish Services, will be making the presentation.

     For the sake of the children, please make plans to attend this important program.

New Session Starts 9/18 & 9/19! Walking with Purpose: Keeping in Balance

Session 2 of Walking with Purpose is Starting Soon!

The new session of Walking with Purpose is upon us. Join us on a twenty-two week journey starting either on Tuesday morning September 18th from 10:30-12:00pm in the Parish Center or on Wednesday September 19th in the evening from 7:00-8:45pm in Monsignor Woods Hall.  It is not too late to register.  Forms are available at all the church doors and at the rectory. The cost of the Book is $40.00, and you can pay by cash or check.  If paying by check, please make check payable to Saint Frances Cabrini Church.

Session 2 Topic: Keeping in BalanceCreating Order Within. This session will take you on a journey throughout Scripture to discover the relevance of Old and New Testament wisdom to our daily challenges. Explore biblical ways that you can manage life’s pace and pressure while living with calm and steadiness. A lifestyle of health and holiness awaits.

Connect Coffee Talk: Getting a Grip Through Authenticity 

Not sure if you want to commit to the entire session. Join us for the Connect Coffee Talk: Everyone is welcome!   The Connect Coffee Talks are open to all women to participate whether the person signed up for the Keeping in Balance sessions or just wants to come and experience Walking With Purpose through the Connect Coffee Talks.

The Connect Coffee Talks occur once a month and consist of social time, a DVD presentation, and small group discussion of selected questions which relate to the presentation.  The first session for Opening Your Heart will be a Connect Coffee Talk.  Those, who want to commit for the entire 22 week Opening Your Heart Program, are asked to please complete the Registration Form in today’s Parish Bulletin.  For those, who would like to explore the Walking With Purpose Program but only want to attend the Connect Coffee Talks, no registration is necessary and there are no books required for these monthly sessions.

All women, parishioners and non-parishioners, are invited to join us for the first Connect Coffee Talk. Come and experience a taste of Walking with Purpose. Growing in these areas is a lifelong pursuit, but there’s no better time to begin than now!  No experience is necessary. All women are cordially invited to just come as you are for some coffee and a chance to see what Walking with Purpose is all about.

Walking with Purpose endeavors to meet women where they are, giving them practical biblical teaching that is consistent with Church doctrine and uses the Catechism of the Catholic Church as an additional resource. Walking with Purpose has three elements: at-home study and prayer, and small group meetings.

From my experience of attending these sessions and meeting other women who have been participating in this Program, they have shared with me what a life-changing experience it has been for them. It has also been life-changing for me as well. Through our meetings with one another, some participants have expressed that there is a greater peace in their lives and an inner happiness that has touched many aspects of their lives. What a blessing and what a great hope for us who are willing to prayerfully consider becoming part of this sacred process.

“For I know the plan I have for you, says the Lord.  Plans for welfare,

not evil, to give you a hope and a future.”  (Jeremiah 29:11)

RENOVATIONS CURRENTLY IN DESIGN PHASE

At this point in time, we are envisioning having a gathering space in the center of the lawn on the Southway Drive side of the church with walkways leading from the parking lot and from Southway Drive to the circular gathering space and also having walkways to the three entrances to the church as well as to the Memorial Prayer Garden, which will be situated on the lawn between the church and the Parish Center.  The Memorial Prayer Garden will incorporate the St. Joseph the Worker Statue and the Memorial Bricks with the intention of incorporating additional Memorial Bricks in the future. We will also be incorporating four handicapped parking spaces along the church side of Goble Court. These handicapped spaces will be indented so as to leave more room for cars to pass by.
 
We are also contemplating an attractive walkway from the parking lot which would bring our parishioners to the gathering area on the church grounds and also another attractive walkway alongside the Father Laut building to allow for our parishioners to make their way from the church to the Monsignor Woods Hall. In addition to the resurfacing of the parking lot, there will be some trees, islands with shrubbery, the relocation of the lighting fixtures and four handicapped parking spaces.

In summary, currently our tentative plans include the following:

  • Large plaza/gathering space on the Southway Drive side of the church including two seating walls incorporating the stones removed from the interior of the church during the installation of the stained glass window
  • Memorial Prayer Garden with benches incorporating the St. Joseph the Worker Statue and the Memorial Bricks on the lawn between the church and the Parish Center
  • Five foot wide, stoned-paved walkways from the plaza/gathering space to the church entrances and to the Memorial Prayer Garden
  • Sloped curbing along the length of the drop off area on Southway Drive
  • Ten-foot wide, stoned-paved walkways with lighting from the Father Laut parking lot to the plaza/gathering space near the church and continuing to the main entrance to the church
  • Four ADA recessed-parking spaces on the church side of Goble Court
  • Four ADA parking spaces in the the Father Laut parking lot
  • Seventeen additional parking spaces in the Father Laut parking lot
  • Stamped asphalt running the length of the Father Laut parking lot near the school building
  • Repaving of the Father Laut parking lot, Monsignor Woods Hall parking lot, the rectory parking lot and driveway
  • Planting islands with trees, shrubbery and relocated lighting in the Father Laut parking lot
  • Pedestrian connection from the Monsignor Woods Hall parking lot to Southway Drive
  • Sidewalk and trees along the length of Southway Drive from Goble Court to Goble Court
