Welcome to Saint Anastasia, A Roman Catholic Church and School in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia

Dear Parishioners of Saint Anastasia,

As we begin this most holy of weeks I encourage you and invite you to take a moment this weekend and look at your schedule. The Holy Week schedule of services is in the bulletin. Please look it over and if you can, set aside some time to attend some or all of the services this week. Make it a point to make some time to spend with the Lord so the week won’t pass by in a blur like so many of them do.

On Palm Sunday the multitude acclaimed Jesus. There was excitement in the air. Where were those same people on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of that same week? What happened to their enthusiasm and spirit?

Let us not make the same mistake. As we welcome Jesus in triumph into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, may we also be prepared to walk with him on the painful road to Calvary. Only by being part of his suffering and death can we be ready to share in his Resurrection. May we all do our part to make Holy Week a holy week.

Have a great day! Fr. Colagreco
