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

Dear Parishioners of Saint Anastasia,

For the Forty Days of Lent we have been preparing for our celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection. The new life that we are beginning to see in the world around us does something to lift our spirits.  After the long and sometimes gloomy days of winter, the light and warmth of the Spring helps us to see things in a new way.  May these outward signs point to something changing within.  May we feel the new life of Easter and a fresh start in our spiritual journey towards that day when we will be called to rise with the Lord ourselves.

Happy Easter to all!  Thank you for your participation in the rites of Holy Week and for your celebration of the Eucharist on the Lord’s Day of Resurrection!

Thanks to the many, many parishioners who helped to make Lent and Holy Week so meaningful: those who served as ministers at the altar-our Extraordinary ministers, lectors, cantors, choir members, servers and ushers.  Our gratitude is extended to all those who worked behind the scenes to clean and decorate the Church and make it a fitting place to pray and worship, not just at Easer but all year round.

As we consider all we have been given, may we say whole heartedly, “We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song!”

Have a great week,

Fr. Colagreco
