Prayer of St. Cyprian
Almighty God, we are reminded through your servant St. Cyprian, of your Spirit always within us and Your continued presence in us, and of our oneness with You and the Church. May we always grow together and profess You in Faith, Unity, and Hope. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we ask this through Christ our Lord

May Jesus Christ, whose love opened for us the way to eternal life, be with you!
According to the C.D.C., we are slowly coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although Covid-19 will always be around, people can now move forward with their lives. Getting the vaccine and booster, will keep Covid-19 under control, and now that we can move around easily, I continue to encourage ALL our parishioners to come back to Church. Being at Mass not only helps one reunite with our Church family, but we get the opportunity to receive Jesus Christ in Holy Communion. What a great reason to return to Church. In addition, myself, and the other priests, really look forward to seeing everyone on Sundays.
Last week, we began the month of May with the celebration of Mother’s Day. This weekend the Archdiocese will celebrate the ordination of several seminarians to deaconate. Next weekend will be the ordination of men to the Priesthood. Please pray for these men as they begin their public ministry to the Church and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Pray also for more men and women to accepting this vocation as priests and religious sisters. We really need them.
May we continue to pray for the people in Ukraine. This senseless act of attacks on the country and its’ people has become evil and inhumane. Like us in the US, the people in Ukraine should be allowed to live in peace and harmony. Let us also keep our city in prayer as the summer months approach. We pray our people live in peace and safety as well.
On this Fifth Sunday of Easter, we hear Jesus’ command to love one another. He said: “Love one another as I have loved you.” This can be challenging at times, but Christ still commands it. The only failure in the life of a Christian is the failure to love. Let us ask Christ for strength and courage to follow and live this command.
Peace and Blessings
