Helen Cassidy, mother of Ray Cassidy, passed away on Tuesday morning. A viewing will take place on Sunday (6-8pm) at Jacob Ruth Funeral Home (8413 Germantown Ave, Chestnut Hill). A Funeral Mass will be said on Monday at 10 AM (Seven Dolors RCC, Wyndmoor, Pa).
From Bernie McGorrey: My cousin’s daughter is in CHOP with a fractured pelvis and is in shock, but otherwise is very much alive. This is miraculous when you look at the wreck online and see the passenger side of the car which was “T-Boned”, which is where she was sitting. Meredith is the third of my widowed cousins’ five children.


Yard Sale

Grace Church is running a yard sale on April 13. They could use any donated items that could be sold at the sale. Specifically, items that we might send to a thrift store could be sent to Grace and they would benefit. Please put any donated items under the coat rack in the undercroft.

Father Fitzpatrick also said there is a great need for bicycles, even if they are not working. There is someone in the congregation who does repairs. Also, microwave ovens, fans, window air conditioners are other items would be much appreciated.
