MASS FOR PENTECOST 2020

Today we celebrate the birthday of the Church–one, holy, apostolic, and universal! We are called to be united in Christ, and we must reject all that divides us–especially in this dark hour.

The upper church today (Sunday) will be open until 3pm. If you choose to make a visit to our Lord, please practice responsible social distancing. Confessions will be available with Fr. Matt in the garden from 2-3pm.

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.

Archbishop Nelson Pereze has declared that parishes throughout Philadelphia will resume their public Masses beginning on the weekend of Trinity Sunday (next week, June 7). As such, St. Francis de Sales Parish will have its first public Sunday Mass at 10:15 am on Sunday, June 7. Please take the time to review the video we’ve made that shows what might be different about Masses during the “Yellow Phase” in Philadelphia.
