from St. David Parish
I am afraid that many of you have never really met Jesus one on one as a friend and don’t know him and his love for you, the love that will change your whole life forever
.” Those are not my words. They are the words of Saint Mother Teresa. She said them to the sisters in her community who had already made a decision to leave everything behind. As we start this great season, Mother Teresa’s words come to mind. I am afraid that they are true for a lot of us in the Church today.

Beginning Ash Wednesday, we will pray the
Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
after every mass.
Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
FAST AND ABSTINENCE AND OTHER ACTS OF PENANCE FOR LENT 2021
The Bishops of the United States prescribe, as minimal obligation, that all persons who are 14 and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, February 17, 2021, on all the Fridays of Lent and Good Friday (with the exception of Friday, March 19th, The Solemnity of St. Joseph). Further, all persons 18 and older, up to and including their 59th birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single full meal on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday, while the other two meals on those days are to be light. All the faithful are encouraged, when possible, to participate at Mass and to receive the Holy Eucharist daily, to celebrate frequently the Sacrament of Penance, to undertake spiritual reading, especially the study of the Sacred Scriptures, and to participate in parish Lenten devotions as well as Lenten education programs. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is especially recommended.

The Lenten journey prepares us for the celebration of Christ’s Passover, the mystery of our salvation. Anticipating this mystery, there is the banquet which the Lord celebrates with his disciples on Holy Thursday, offering himself under the signs of bread and wine. In the Eucharistic celebration, as I wrote in the Apostolic Letter Dies Domini, "the Risen Lord becomes really, substantially and enduringly present. . . and the Bread of Life is offered as a pledge of future glory".
from Our Holy Father, Pope John Paul II's, Message for Lent 1999
Eucharistic Adoration is in our chapel every
Monday 7 AM – 7 PM, Wednesday 7 AM – 7 PM and Friday 7 AM – 4 PM
Many thanks to all who have answered the call to spend an hour each week with Our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration. If you can sign up for a Holy Hour, please contact Paula Warnalis 215-715-6911.

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.
God Bless You,
