WELCOME BACK! TRINITY SUNDAY 2020

Welcome back! St. Francis de Sales is pleased to announce its first “public” Mass since the stay-at-home orders went into effect in March. We are delighted to have you and yours back under our little dome, and to better prepare you for what’s different, we’ve made a special video of our procedures. 

We’d also like to remind you that the Sunday obligation to attend Mass is still suspended. If you can, do join us! If you feel you’re at risk, we’d urge you to err on the side of caution and join us from home. Our prerecorded Masses will continue through the month of June.

The upper church today will be open after Mass on Sunday. If you choose to make a visit to our Lord, please practice responsible social distancing. Confessions will be available AFTER MASS with Fr. Matt in the garden from 12-1 pm.

Donations may be made online through Parish Giving, PayPal, Venmo (@SFDSPhiladelphia), or CashApp ($SFDSPhiladelphia). Checks may be dropped off or mailed at our address: Saint Francis de Sales Parish, 4625 Springfield Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19143.

This Mass was prerecorded on May 30, 2020.
