The Diocese of Allentown announced we will enter the Green Phase on June 29th. This means we can raise our Church occupancy from 25% to 50%.

Also, votive candles can be lit again.

Adoration is allowed in the Church only and we are figuring out times and options for that.

Everything else remains the same. We are still doing daily Masses, outdoor if we can. Mass is still at 8AM on Monday through Saturday, and 9AM, 11AM and 1PM (Spanish) on Sundays.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

By now many of you have seen or heard this news but I want to officially announce to you that the Sisters of Christian Charity have taken on a new assignment that will end their ministry here at Our Lady Help of Christians.

Sr. Mary Margaret Miller, Sr. Sophia Marie Peralta and Sr. Luiza Simon are not going far. They will be ministering at Queenship of Mary Parish in Northampton. One of the sisters will be teaching at Good Shepherd School there.

The Sisters will be greatly missed around here. Sisters of Christian Charity have served at Our Lady Help of Christians since 1928; only a year after the parish was founded. They have been teachers and principals at the parish school until it closed two years ago. They have worked in the rectory, visited the sick, and established a bereavement ministry that has comforted many.

The parish has also been blessed by the spirituality of the Companions of Mother Pauline. The graces that have come to the parish from the companions will last forever.

Please join me in praying that the Sisters’ new assignment will be as beneficial to Queenship of Mary and Good Shepherd School as their 92 years of service here has been to us.

We will miss the Sisters but they will always be in our prayers.

Godspeed, Sisters.

Yours in Christ Jesus,
Father Johnson
