Welcome to Saint Anastasia, A Roman Catholic Church and School in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia
Dear Parishioners of Saint Anastasia,
As we announced last Sunday in church, Father Landis has been assigned to teach at Archbishop Ryan High School in Northeast Philadelphia. He will be leaving Saint Anastasia in a few weeks. We will be planning a farewell to thank Father Landis for his faithful service here these past four years. More information will be in the bulletin next week. Father Landis will be replaced by Father Lawrence Kozak. Father Kozak is a Delaware County native who was ordained in 2004. He is coming to our parish from Our Lady of Calvary Parish in Philadelphia. More to follow…
Monday is Memorial Day. There will be one Mass at 8:45 AM. Please join us for this Mass during which we honor not only those who gave their lives for our country but also all those who have died from our parish and our parish families this past year. It’s a wonderful way to begin this special day of remembrance. Please join us. There will be no 6:30 Mass this Wednesday and Thursday since the priests of the Archdiocese will be meeting for the annual Priests’ Convocation in Hershey, PA. Please pray for us during these days.
Congratulations to Dr. Carol Carey who was the Principal of Saint Anastasia School from 2003 to 2007. She has most recently served as Superintendent for Secondary Schools for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Last week Dr. Carey was named the Superintendent of Schools for the Marple Newtown School District. I know you will join with me in wishing her well.
Have a great week,
