August 23, 2020: Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Peter wasn’t educated. He wasn’t particularly pious, and he was a bit of a hothead at times. And yet, his faith in Jesus–his willingness to step forward and identify Him as the Son of God–shows us why he was given the Keys to the kingdom of Heaven: the power of the Church to bind and to loose.

On Sundays, our church doors remain open for private prayer after Mass until 6 pm. If you choose to make a Sunday visit to our Lord, please practice responsible social distancing.

Please consider donating to St. Francis de Sales Parish. In the absence of a Sunday collection, we rely on your contributions to provide service to our community.

Donations may be made online through Parish Giving:

Or via check to: Saint Francis de Sales Parish, 4625 Springfield Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19143.
