SUNDAY JULY 19, 2015
We are just few weeks away from our annual Parish Picnic, which will take place on Sunday July 19th on the lovely parish grounds of St. Matthew’s.

Every year, we take this time to gather as a community and reconnect with friends as we share in food, faith, and fun. We welcome parishioners and guests to attend and see how we celebrate!

Of course, our success also comes from the many hands and people who come together to make food, setup, clean-up, run games, and provide general help. If you would like to assist, we’ll share information soon, and thank you in advance for making another wonderful picnic here at the Partner Parishes of St. Ambrose, St. Matthew and St. Sylvester.

The Knights of Columbus along with our Partner Parishes will provide food and drinks, but we also welcome parishioners and guests to bring food and desserts that shares the wonderful diversity of our faith family.

Bring the whole family and we look forward to seeing you on July 19th!


A Prayer for the World Meeting of Families Philadelphia 2015

God and Father of us all,

in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,

you have made us

your sons and daughters

in the family of the Church.


May your grace and love

help our families

in every part of the world

be united to one another

in fidelity to the Gospel.


May the example of the Holy Family,

with the aid of your Holy Spirit,

guide all families,

especially those most troubled,

to be homes of communion and prayer

and to always seek your truth and live in your love.


Through Christ our Lord, Amen

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
