Today I announced the bittersweet news that I have been reassigned to St. Thomas More Church in Allentown, effective August 1st. I will miss the good people of St. Ignatius Loyola Roman Catholic Church and Saint Francis de Sales and am forever grateful for the ways you have helped form me in my first years of priesthood! I am looking forward to getting to know the people of Saint Thomas. Please keep me in your prayers!

There will be a Fun & Social Committee planning meeting held here on
Tuesday, June 13th @ 6:30 pm.
All committee members are encouraged to attend.
Come join us in bringing Jesus to our community! On Sunday, June 11, 2023, on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), there will be a procession with the Blessed Sacrament through Robesonia immediately following 10:30 AM Mass. The feast of Corpus Christi has been observed universally since 1264 and the prayers and hymns associated with it were composed by Saint Thomas Aquinas himself! Since this time, processions with the Eucharist in the monstrance with singing by the people have been a feature of the celebration. Our procession will form after Mass and go through the local streets (closed to vehicles) and sidewalks and will last about a half hour, ending again in church for Benediction. It is a special opportunity for our First Communicants and those who serve in various ministries to be present. Those who are unable to make the walk are welcome to stay in church and pray for the success of the procession: not only an opportunity to celebrate our Lord in the Eucharist, but also an opportunity to "Live Jesus" in bringing the light of Christ to the world outside our doorsteps. All are welcome!
