Come, experience a weekend filled with rest, relaxation and spiritual renewal. The peaceful atmosphere of St. Francis Center for Renewal can provide a much-needed break from your daily routine.

You will have the opportunity to participate in the sacraments, to hear talks, to share with other men and women and to reflect on this year’s theme, "Rest in God".

Our Spiritual Director for the retreat is Rev. Philip Rodgers, currently the pastor of St. Benedict's in Mohnton. Registration forms are available in the rear of the church or for more information please contact Mary Marzen at 610-377-0628 or

Pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory

Prayer of St. Gertrude for the Holy Souls:

Eternal Father, I offer you the Most Precious Blood of your Divine Son, Jesus, in union with all the Masses said throughout the world today for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the Universal Church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.

Prayer of Cardinal Newman

O most gentle heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in purgatory, have mercy on the souls of Your servants.
Bring them from the shadows of exile to Your bright home in heaven, where we trust You and Your Blessed Mother have woven for them a crown of unfolding bliss. Amen.
