40 CANS FOR LENT:  A Knights of Columbus charity program that connects traditional Lenten alms-giving with the nutritional needs of needy families.  We continue to invite parishioners to participate.  Our goal is to collect 2500 lbs.  Contribution of one can-per-day, inspired by Christ’s 40 days of fasting in the desert, is the goal.  The program will continue through Palm Sunday. This is a joint venture with Saint Vincent de Paul Society and several Knights are needed before each mass this weekend  to help parishioners transfer food from their cars to the St. Vincent DePaul food trailer.  Please consider arriving at mass 15 minutes early to help.  Any questions, please contact Brother Tom at 610-312-9107 or tomlanchoney [at] yahoo [dot] com
