we need you finalIf you are here, you want to know more about our rally on Thursday, March 20 in front of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to ask Archbishop Chaput to “Redo the Parish Area Pastoral Planning Initiative”! We believe this is the only way to reach a fair and just apportioning of the resources for all the people of the Archdiocese. some parishes had to close but what and how that happens should truly involve all the parishioners. Please join to add your voice to our cause! Please bring a friend or two!
