Sacramental Preparedness

Villanova University works with our parish, St. Thomas of Villanova to prepare those about to receive the Sacraments. Sacraments of Initiation (those preparing to enter the church or make a fuller commitment) are Baptism, Confirmation and First Eucharist. See the RCIA page for more details. Those preparing for marriage work directly with the Parish Wedding Coordinator.

Tolle Lege

John 11: 1-45

In the Spirit of St Augustine ask yourself the question: “What about the readings of Palm Sunday get me excited?” Jesus is riding into town on a donkey and people are throwing a party! They’re are laying down their cloaks and scampering to cover the road with palm branches to celebrate His arrival. Wait…does this sound familiar? David did the same thing with the Arc of the Covenant! He danced before the Arc as it was brought into the city and so too are the people celebrating at Jesus’ entrance, the entrance of the New and Everlasting Covenant. Whenever we gather together and celebrate the Eucharist we celebrate Christ’s arrival into the Holy City, the Church, and his arrival among us. We are the Holy City, the Church and we’re called to announce His presence and throw a party that invites everyone to the table. How are you extending that invitation?
