We are not yet scheduling Youth Masses due to COVID but we encourage all families to attend Mass weekly.  Those preparing for the Sacraments are required to do so by Father Rich and have a bulletin signed.  Great job so far accomplishing this goal!! Keep up the good work!!!


Don't forget all the great opportunities St. Francis offers - Women's Prayer Group, Men of St. Francis, Outreach Committee, Welcome & Evangelization Committee, Movie Club, Youth Ministry (Grades 6-12), Liturgical Ministers, Right to Life and MORE!!  Check out the Parish Website or Bulletin for details!


See you in 2022!!







 Due to the climbing         numbers of COVID cases - the Diocese has put into place procedures for keeping your children safe while undergoing their religious education.

*  Masks are required for ALL persons entering the  building - for any reason - whether vaccinated or not.  These include drop-offs, pick ups and short visits.  

*  All children/teachers/volunteers and guests entering classrooms will be required to use hand sanitizer.  

*  We are offering homeschooling options.  All students who choose to be homeschooled MUST complete all work as if attending classes IN PERSON and abide by any deadlines outlined by Mrs. Stockdale and their child's teacher(s).  Further details can be provided by Mrs. Stockdale.

Registrations are being accepted NOW.

All registrations should be completed and ready to be turned in to the parish office or on September 12th.  


It's time to think about registering for PREP!!!

All parish children in Grades 1 -  8 should register (if they do not attend parochial school).  

Save yourself time - register now - then you can just meet your child's teacher(s) on Sunday, September 12th.

Registrations are available online via the website, paper via the Parish Office or Mrs. Stockdale can email you a packet.  

On September 12, all of the teachers and volunteers will be available from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. to meet you and your child and so you can familiarize where their classes will be held! 

Because Mrs. Stockdale is teaching 2nd Grade we are asking EVERYONE to register by September 12th, as it will be difficult for her to handle registrations on the 19th!  

For information on PREP classes - contact Mrs. Stockdale at 484 547 6270 or 




Teachers are as follows:

1st - Gladys Rodiguez with aide, Mercedes Fiorentino

We welcome back all returning teachers and volunteers and are so thankful for the new folks joining our children on their religious and faith journey! 

Our classes will be IN PERSON for this year but we will follow all CDC and Dioceason COVID guidelines that are in place.
