Liturgy Experience: Children’s Mass

The Liturgy Experience committee has planned thoughtfully over the last two years to create a monthly Children’s Mass that engages parishioners of all ages. Children are involved throughout the service: as greeters at the church doors, cantors, in the choir and at the altar for an interactive, kid-friendly homily. Look for this special celebration of faith to resume in September.

Parishioner Engagement: Successful Parish Coffee for Music Ministry

The SKS Music Ministry hosted a successful Parish Coffee on February 18! Parishioners of all ages filled the parish center after the 9:30 Mass for coffee, doughnuts and a service project sponsored by the Faithful Families ministry. Laura Kerr, our choir director, did a wonderful job highlighting the music ministry; she arranged for speakers at Mass and had choir members mingling with the coffee crowd, ready to answer questions. The choir signed 10 new members that day!

Parishioner Engagement: SKS at the Movies: Cabrini Sunday, March 10 at 1:30PM KOP United Artist Theater

Cabrini tells the inspiring story of Mother Francesca Cabrini, an Italian immigrant who fought to improve lives of the marginalized in the United States. Following her death, the tenacious nun was made the first American saint. Cabrini University was named after her.
Let’s go to the movies! We are encouraging SKS parishioners to see Cabrini at the Regal in King of Prussia on March 10 at the 1:30pm matinee. Bring your families and friends so we can fill the theater!

Parishioner Engagement and Faith Sharing 

The three Parish Plan committees continue to support and strengthen the SKS values of faith, community and family. In the past year, you may have noticed the new music at Mass, the more robust parish coffees and new opportunities to explore your faith; all the result of combined efforts by several committees. Advent by Candlelight, details below, is happening because the Faith Sharing committee conceived and planned the event while the Parishioner Engagement committee helped spread the word to the parish.

Parishioner Engagement:  Using Parish Coffees to Grow

Lately, the Parishioner Engagement committee has been eyeing coffees as a way to grow parish ministries. The committee has identified three components of a successful parish coffee: food and beverages, a committed ministry host and a service activity for the children. Each ministry receives a new tip sheet, created by the parishioner engagement team, on “How to Host a Successful Parish Coffee” with suggestions for soliciting food, finding volunteers, quick set-up, clean-up, etc. The sheet also emphasizes ways the ministry can use the coffee to promote itself, its mission, activities and […]

“Lord, teach us to pray”  Luke 11:1

Sharing the faith begins with our own encounter with the living Christ through sacraments, scripture and prayer. During the Lenten season we had the opportunity to “Repent and believe in the Gospel” through prayer, fasting and abstinence. To continue to grow spiritually as Catholics, we recommend the Hallow Prayer App to help you establish a habit of daily personal prayer and/or deepen and expand your existing prayer life.  There is something for everyone! You’ll find guided rosaries, minute meditations, daily reflections, content for children, music, Bible in a Year, prayer […]
