  • Pope Francis
    Prayer for the Synod
    2021-2023


    Pope Francis has called the universal Church to journey together. This Synod is entitled: “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, and Mission.” This Synod is not just another meeting with people providing presentations and written reports. This Synod is a process of journeying together by listening, dialoguing, praying, discerning and making decisions together for the purpose of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
     

    Pope Francis is asking each diocese in the world to gather – clergy, religious and laity together – to listen to each other. The goal of this journeying together is not to create a new vision or pastoral plan. The goal of our journeying together is to be present with one another, to listen and learn with each other, and to grow closer to the Lord and His Church, especially as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.


    Below is the Prayer for the Synod
    that all of us are called to pray.

    Prayer for the Synod
    2021-2023
    Communion, Participation & Mission

    We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
    as we gather together in Your name.


    With You alone to guide us,
    make Yourself at home in our hearts;
    Teach us the way we must go
    and how we are to pursue it.


    We are weak and sinful;
    do not let us promote disorder.
    Do not let ignorance lead us down the
    wrong path
    nor partiality influence our actions.


    Let us find in You our unity
    so that we may journey together to eternal life
    and not stray from the way of truth
    and what is right.


    All this we ask of You,
    who are at work in every place and time,
    in the communion of the Father and the Son,
    forever and ever.


    Amen.

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

         We feel truly blessed and excited to begin our ministry here at St. Katharine Drexel Parish. As Directors of Faith Formation, we will be touching base most often within our Living In Faith Together (LIFT) program, which gathers families with children in Grades K through 8 this year. The Diocese of Pittsburgh is requiring all faith formation programs to meet in person effective for the 2021-2022 formation year. We will follow all protocols issued by the Diocese of Pittsburgh regarding the ever-changing Covid-19 virus. If you have children who are eligible to receive First Penance, First Eucharist and/or Confirmation, we will also be spending more time together in separate programs...................

  •   Bereavement Ministry


    Our SKDP Bereavement Ministry will enlist Funeral Planners who will meet with the family to assist with planning the funeral liturgy.

    Volunteers will provide vigil prayers for the deceased at the funeral home the day before the funeral.

    Members will continue ongoing outreach to those in need that will offer comfort and care.

     
    "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." (Mt 5:4)
     
    If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please call the administration center at 724-209-1370, ext.404.

    Lifeline of Listening Friends
     
         “Lifeline of Listening Friends” is organized by volunteers to help those who've lost a loved one journey through the grieving process.

         In today's society people are expected to ‘get-over’ the loss of a loved one quickly. This is not always realistic. We know that there are many ways to grieve. We support each person’s right to grieve in an individual and unique fashion.
