10 Monthly Themes
February 2015: Two Become One
We are not made to be alone. Human beings need and
complete each other. Friendship and community satisfy that
longing with bonds of common interest and love. Marriage is a
uniquely intimate form of friendship that calls a man and a
woman to love each other in the manner of God’s covenant.
Marriage is a Sacrament. Married love is fruitful and offered
without reservation. This love is in the image of Jesus’s
faithfulness to the Church.
PLEASE REMEMBER…those who are sick in your prayers, Beth
Tomeo, Maryann Bunch, John Lapolla, Krista Hiller, Chase Kane and
Nickie Nicoladse.
For those in need of Healing Prayer there are pray overs the 1st
and 3rd Sunday of each month after the noon Mass on the Blessed
Virgin Mary side of the alter.
PLEASE REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS, all our
deceased benefactors especially .Carmen Podziomek,
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Monday 7PM, Saturday, before Vigil Masses and
Sunday before 7:30AM & 9:00 AM Holy Mass.
Exposition of the Most Blessed Sacrament in St.
Mary’s Chapel Monday thru Friday 9AM-7 PM.
Difficulty Hearing in Church? Did you know that you can bring
any transistor radio with a head set to church and tune to channel
107.5 to receive assistance with hearing. Those who have been using
this assistance are most pleased. The radio does not have to be
special. The least expensive ones work just fine.

Dear Sisters and Brother in the Lord,
On behalf of Archbishop Chaput, I am sharing with you a request from Bishop Francis Kalabat of the Chaldean Diocese of
Saint Thomas the Apostle to broadly encourage prayer to the Blessed Virgin Mary for her intercession on behalf of
persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Individuals are asked to say this prayer in conjunction with the recitation of the
Holy Rosary for the intention of the persecuted.
“Mother of God, Virgin Mary, be for us a safeguard from all illnesses and hardships. Through the great love you have for
Christ, ask and beseech Him to be merciful to us, to give healing to our ailments, to console the downtrodden, to reunite those
who are scattered and to forgive us.”

To prepare for the World Meeting of Families and Pope Francis’s visit, we are studying a catechesis on family life called
Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive. Each month, our parish is reflecting on one chapter. Previous monthly
reflections are online at PhillyEvang.org/wmof. You can order the catechesis and learn more about next year’s big event, at
WorldMeeting2015.org. Chapter 4: Two Become One Our first three chapters reviewed basic Christian faith. We saw how
confidence in Jesus opens the door to faith, enabling us to know God and what God has done in history. God creates male and
female in his image, and makes a covenant with Israel and the Church. God is faithful to his promises, even when we sin.
Because God loved us in this way, we spend our lives trying to return our love to God and share it with our neighbor. In this
month’s chapter and in the chapters to come, we will study the implications of these doctrines for marriage and the family.
When husband and wife promise to love each other as God loves us all, they make a commitment to love not only romantically,
but also with mercy and forgiveness. Our culture sometimes teaches us to think of marriage as a negotiable contract between
two individuals who happen to feel sexual chemistry. This view of love is a recipe for instability, since it is still premised on
individualism and the waxing and waning of romantic feelings. The Church’s alternative account of love enables us to
transcend the culture of individualism and become who we were created to be. Founded on Christ, sustained in the sacraments,
Catholic marriage builds humility and self-sacrifice into the dynamic between male and female. As this month’s chapter
explains in more detail, sacramental marriage creates intimate communion even in times of suffering and hardship. “Love is our
mission,” as our catechism’s title declares, because Christ’s love frees us from false, shrunken accounts of love and makes us
fully alive. - Christopher C. Roberts, catechism editor Did you know? The World Meeting of Families is for everyone, whether
you are married, single, celibate, or consecrated! Talk topics include marriage, parenting, grand parenting, celibacy, dating,
fostering vocations, family life and much more. Visit the website for the list of speakers and talk titles: WorldMeeting2015.org.

Consultation of the Clergy and Faithful/2015 Synod of Bishops
Once again, as with the most recent Synod of Bishop, the Office of the Synod of Bishops invites a process of broad
consultation among every component of the local Church, including academic institutions, organizations, lay movements and
other ecclesial associations.
A summary of the Lineamenta and accompanying questions for consultation can be found on the Archdiocesan website at
www.archphila.org. Responses to those questions are to be submitted by Monday, March 9, 2015. The online instrument will
automatically submit responses to the Archdiocese for participants. All responses will be collated and form a general response
of the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to assist with the preparation for the 2015 Synod of Bishops.
If you require hard copies of the consultation instrument for individuals who do not have access to the Internet, please contact
the Office for Communications at (215) 587-3747. All respondents utilizing traditional mail to send hard copies of the
consultation instrument are asked to mail them to:
Office for Divine Worship
Archdiocese of Philadelphia
222 North 17th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
These forms should be mailed in time for the office to receive them no later than Monday, March 9, 2015.

" Does anybody hear? Does anybody care?"
The MARCH FOR LIFE marked the 42nd anniversary of the
legalization of abortion in the U.S. at every stage of fetal
development. As a consequence, statistics show in the greater
Philadelphia area more than 10,000 abortions in the first three quarters
of 2014, almost 50% of them in the black community. " Does anybody
hear? Does anybody care?" St. John Paul II on a papal trip to the U.S
warned that if we want peace we must end abortion. If you are not
aware about this evil taking place and would like to be informed as
practicing Catholics and people of God, come and view the
compelling documentary film "40" that examines the effects of
abortion on our nation. Can you spare one hour to become informed
about an issue vital for the future of our nation? We are all called to
stand up for life. PARISH VIEWING DATES AND TIMES TO BE
ANNOUNCED.
SSPJ Mothers Group Meeting We will have our social
gathering on Tuesday, February 10th from 9:00am to
11:00am in the rectory meeting room. Come enjoy
fellowship with other mothers, as well as pray the rosary for
our children and our families. Children and new faces are
always welcome. For more info, please contact Phuong
Judkins (610-594-8759 or [email protected]).
YPC will meet on Sat. Feb. 21 in the gym. New members
from all schools grades 5-8 are always welcome, and wear
sneakers for basketball and social games. Info. Call Karen T
610-363-1484 . YPC thanks members Lindsey Downs,
Amanda Wallace, Caroline Sendi, and their moms Lisa,
Julie, and Mary for organizing a drive to meet the winter
needs of the people in St. Agnes Day Room.
The "40 Film" is here. Don't miss it! This is a
thoughtful and compelling one hour film that
examines the effects of abortion on our nation over
t h e 40+ years since Roe v. Wade. It presents abortion as
the most important human rights issue of our time for people
of all persuasions. It addresses the issue from both sides and
provides heartfelt testimonies from post abortive women and
reports on youth as the generation that will end the abortion
holocaust. Take time to view the film, even if only partially,
to become inspired to pray for an end to abortion during the
40 Days For Life campaign this Lent. The film will be
screened in the church after the 8:30 AM and 7:30 PM
Masses on Ash Wednesday. Please plan to attend.
"Parents are cautioned that the film, due to subject and length,
may not be suitable for younger children"
As always, we are especially grateful to the families of Sts.
P&J School who generously respond to the needs of so many
whom our young people try to help. Thanks to all!

SSPJ School Celebrates Catholic Schools Week!
Religion Bowl Adds Grade Winner
Every Quarter Counts!
Every Catholic Schools Week, the students anticipate
the annual religion bowl. Students are chosen to
represent their homeroom based on religion contests
within their own classrooms. Questions are asked in
increased difficulty based on the grade level. As in
previous years, there were three rounds: 3rd versus
4th grade, 5th versus 6th grade, and 7th versus 8th
grade. This year, however, there was an overall grade
winner, which was 5th grade! We are proud of how
well our students know their faith. Test your Catholic
IQ and see if you’re smarter than a 5th grader!
Answers are at the bottom of the page.
Students gathered up their loose change to contribute
to a great cause! SSPJ School held its annual quarter
race in which each homeroom collects quarters for a
week and then lines them up along the gym floor to
find out which homeroom collected the most! The
winner was 3rd grade whose quarters went the length
of the basketball court and then some! The total
amount raised was $2,000 which will go to Catholic
charities. Pictured below are some of our generous
students (clockwise): Julia, Dean, Jack, Nick, Sophia,
and Kylie.
1. What day is called the birthday of the church?
2. What does the word Eucharist mean?
3. What does the word Gospel mean?
4. What do we call a letter written to the early
Christian community?
5. How many books are in the Bible?
6. Besides the Gospel, which book did Luke write?
7. Who is the greatest of all the saints?
Pictured above are the 5th grade Religion Bowl winners
from left to right: Lyndsey, Georgia, Nick, Hayden, Ryan,
and Elizabeth.
ALS Association Visits SSPJ School!
A representative from the ALS Association - Greater
Philadelphia Chapter, Ashley Hendrix, came to visit
SS. Philip and James School to thank the students for
the generous $500 donation they raised on spirit day!
At an assembly, Ms. Hendrix told the students about
the disease and how the money helps those afflicted
with ALS. As a thank you, each student received an
ALS wristband. Pictured with Mrs. Denman (left) is
Charlie, 1st grade; Samantha, 3rd grade and Ashley
