from St. David Parish
During Advent, the Annunciation is a powerful mystery to ponder as it reveals Mary’s interior life. The movement of Mary’s heart from fear, to wonder, to questioning and then to total surrender is the path we are called to follow in our lives. Every time I hear Mary’s response to Gabriel’s announcement and explanation, I am awed: “I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word.”

The Green Phase
As of June 26, 2020, the five-county area of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia moved into the green phase of the reopening of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The green phase continues to require precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 and our corporate responsibility to observe them.
The liturgical directives that follow are for the Pennsylvania green phase and our Archdiocesan Open Phase for the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy. They were authorized by the Archbishop to go into effect on Friday morning, June 26, 2020.
to view the directives for attending Mass at Saint David.
We can be certain that there will be challenges as we reunite and celebrate Mass together. I ask that we be patient with one another, we all desire one thing – to celebrate the Eucharist together in our church! It will take some adjusting and some refining of details, but let us keep our focus on the Lord, who calls us to gather as His people.

I eagerly await the day we gather together in our church. In the meantime, let us continue to pray for one another.

We have enjoyed being able to welcome our students in-person each day during these unprecedented times. It's hard to believe, but it is time to start planning for the 2021-2022 school year!

For qualified students in grades 5-8, we offer an honors math class. Students in kindergarten through grade two consistently utilize iPads and Chromebooks to enhance their learning. Third through eighth-grade students participate in a 1:1 Chromebook Program.
The value of our PreK programs is unmatched in quality and price - offering full and half-day options for 3 and 4-year-olds. We also provide before and aftercare at a reasonable price.
