In response to the current Pandemic circumstances, we are returning to as much “contactless” rectory business as possible.
All rectory requests need to begin with a phone call to the rectory,
215-836-2828. The rectory will be open Monday to Thursday 9am to 4pm,
and Sundays 10am to 12noon. We are grateful for your cooperation in picking up and dropping off parish business without having to come into the rectory. We will continue to address as many needs in this fashion. All in person meetings need a scheduled appointment. When you arrive, please call the rectory from the parking lot before coming to the door. A mask or face covering must be worn at all times for all in person rectory visits.
An Update from Deacon Conroy
I want to wish each of you a Happy, Healthy and Holy New Year. I am taking this opportunity to update you on my current health situation.
As you may remember, I have a rare autoimmune disease. There is no cure for this disease but there IS an effective treatment. Unfortunately, that treatment consists of completely suppressing my immune system to try to get the disease into remission.
While on these powerful immunosuppressants, I must quarantine at home to guard against contracting an infectious disease. Even the slightest infection could be life threatening. Not only will I be unable to assist at Mass, I am also restricted from attending in person. I am so grateful that we have the weekly livestreamed Mass.
I will continue to work remotely from home as Parish Services Director. However, after prayerful consideration and consultation with my medical team, I have requested, from the Archdiocese, a temporary leave of absence from my diaconal ministry to the Parish Community. These heartbreaking decisions have been difficult to make but I trust they are part of God’s plan for me. I will miss serving the wonderful community here at St. Gen’s, I will especially miss the regular interaction and support I have had for the past 15 1/2 years. With the guidance and support of my medical team, we will re-evaluate these decisions after an appropriate period of time.
Know that you all remain in my daily prayers. Please remember me in yours as well. May God bless all of you.
