Saint Simon Stock is a welcoming Catholic community. Guided by the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Word, Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the center of parish life. Through our Baptismal call, we generously share our time, talent and treasure. As responsible stewards of the Kingdom of God, we give joyful witness to Jesus Gospel of love.Pastor: Rev. James Dabrowski
Due to the snow, the Christmas concert originally scheduled for Dec. 8th has been cancelled and rescheduled for Dec. 15th at 3:00pm.
What’s the recipe for peacefulness that we often forget about? Advent! We hurry quickly to Christmas, and almost the next day stores rush to take down decorations and get ready for Valentine’s Day! If we let it, Advent can be a time to let go of our grasp on things that distract us from Jesus. Advent reminds us to prepare peacefully for this coming Christmas, but also to prepare for the day of Jesus’ second coming! We are offering two opportunities to chill out and enrich your preparation during this Holy Season…
Come with family and friends to celebrate Christmas the old fashioned way, singing holy carols that are near and dear to us! Adults and children are invited to bring bells to play along. Also, kindly bring your Baby Jesus from your crèche/manger to be blessed if you wish. Please bring new scarves, mittens, hats or gloves (children or adult sizes) as a donation.
These two nights will be presented by Michelle Francl-Donnay, spiritual writer as well as a professor of chemistry. Michelle gives retreats as well as blogs on life, laundry, prayer and God in the midst of being a wife, mom and teacher. She writes regularly for the Philadelphia Archdiocese’s CatholicPhilly.com, and contributes to Give Us This Day, The Liguorian and Loyola Press’ Ignatian Spirituality site.
Michelle’s topic, Be Still and Know that I am God: The Extravagance of Being “Unbusy,” will help us catch our breath with God during our overflowing holiday calendars. Join us for one night or both nights!
