What do you do during advent? Here we are, the first week of Advent. This season always has a way of creeping up on me and maybe you as well. Each year I always feel rushed to get ready for Christmas, and if you are like me, we may already feel behind as we hurry to decorate the house, both inside and out. We might put up an Advent wreath in the hopes that we light it every day. We may try to fit in a year’s worth of shopping in just a few weeks. With all of these activities, the questions that remain on my mind are: what do we do during advent and why we do it?
to continue reading Fr. Windle's reflection.
How many things Jesus tells us in our heart, when we stand at His feet, if we are careful to listen to His Voice!

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.
