Devotions to be prayed following the streamed Masses
FASTING AND ABSTINENCE: All Catholics 14 years of age and above are obliged to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent. All Catholics from 18 until 60 years of age are additionally required to fast on two occasions, on Ash Wednesday and again from Good Friday until the celebration of the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday (this second occasion is called the Paschal Fast, and is one of the few immediate reforms enacted by the Second Vatican Council). The Ash Wednesday Fast and the Paschal Fast require those who are bound to fast to consuming only one reasonably sized meal, two very small meals, and nothing between meals.
Confessions will be heard in the Chapel on Saturdays, from 10:30 till 11:30 AM and again from 4:00 till 5:00 PM, from the beginning of Lent through Palm Sunday weekend. Additional opportunities for the Sacrament of Penance, during Holy Week, will be scheduled and published in the coming weeks.

We are happy to share that our Holy Father has announced the appointment of our next Archbishop of Philadelphia! As we congratulate Archbishop Chaput on his retirement, we welcome home, to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Archbishop Nelson Perez. May the Lord bless Archbishop Chaput and Archbishop Perez and our Archdiocese in the days ahead!
FOR YOUR SAFETY: A complete video camera system capturing both inside and outside of the church has been installed. This will assist our safety teams in keeping everyone safe while attending Mass. In the very near future we will be able to "Live Stream" both daily and weekend Masses to computer via You Tube and TV via Roku systems.
It is a shame we need to invest in something like this, but as we are all aware, it is a different world out there now. May God bless and keep us all safe
