10/22/2018 Update: Bishop’s Letter

Sunday, March 17, 2019

Glory will come our way, if we but stand firm in the Lord! This is the theme of today’s Scripture readings. The First Reading is the second of three accounts of God’s covenant with Abram, who is later known as Abraham (cf. Genesis 12:1 –9;17:1-27). This covenant is what scholars call a royal grant treaty, because God blessed Abram with this promise of land and descendants with no strings attached. Abram did not earn this honor but only believe God and for that, God credited it to him as righteousness, meaning “right relationship” with God. At Home With The Word.

In His love and mine, Fr. Ken

 

In the Spring of 1988, Bishop William D. Keeler formed a new parish to accommodate the rapid growth in Silver Spring Township and named Reverend James R. O’Brien as the founding pastor. That same year, Mother Katharine Drexel was beatified by Pope John Paul, II. Saint Katharine DrexelAt Bishop Keeler’s request, the Holy Father gave his permission to name the Parish in Silver Spring Township as the first parish in the world to be named in her honor. Eighteen years later, on October 1, 2000, Blessed Katharine Drexel was canonized and the church’s name changed to Saint Katharine Drexel.

The Saint Katharine Drexel Parish Family, guided by the Holy Spirit, commits itself to reaching out and sharing with all people the love and service modeled by our patroness, with the Eucharist as our source of strength. Through prayer and action, we will serve God, our Lord and Savior, and our community, exhibiting a special concern for the poor, oppressed and marginalized of our society, especially those among the African-American & Native-American peoples.
