“The Vibrant Parish – A Place to Encounter the Living Christ”

Last year, each church family in the Philadelphia Archdiocese received a pastoral letter from His Beatitude Sviatoslav entitled “The Vibrant Parish – a place to encounter the living Christ.”  Copies of the letters can be found on the vestibule table, and one is currently on the bulletin board.  In the letter, His Beatitude Sviatoslav outlined the Church’s vision to “help its Faithful to grow in holiness and unity in Christ Jesus.”   The idea is that if every parish works toward the goal of becoming a stronger church community, then we will automatically grow in unity with Jesus.  Starting with the Sunday July 14, Fr. Ivan will preach on the seven paragraphs of the letter:

The Word Of God
Holy Mysteries (Sacraments) and Prayer
Serving One’s Neighbour


Fostering and Serving Unity

Missionary Spirit of the Parish Community
