Merry Christmas to all of our PREP Families. May the joy of the season remain with you in the New Year, and may God bless your families with peace and love always.
We congratulate Fr. Ken, who was officially installed as our new Pastor on Saturday, August 15 by Bishop Michael Fitzgerald. We pray for many grace-filled years as the Pastor of St. Isidore Parish. May God continue to bless and protect his vocation to the priesthood.
With great joy, the staff, volunteers and families of St. Isidore Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) celebrate the First Profession of Vows to the Sisters of Christian Charity by Sister Chiara Marie Stimpfle.

Biking for Vocations 2020 is an exciting five-day pilgrimage
designed to raise awareness about vocations to the priesthood
and vocational discernment, as well as to generate support for
our seminarians currently in formation.
In 2019, this initiative started with eight bikers and has grown
to twelve bikers, plus a few special guests! This year there will
be two separate routes: the Perimeter Route with bikers riding
along the outer edges of the Archdiocese, and the
City/Suburban Route, where bikers will ride through the city of
Philadelphia and into the northeastern suburbs of the
Archdiocese. For additional information about the 2020
Biking for Vocations program visit https://heedthecall.org/bikingforvocations/
St. Isidore Parish will be visited by Fr. Christopher Cooke and
the Seminarians biking along the Perimeter Route. We hope
that you’ll consider joining us to welcome these men to our
parish and to join them in praying for more holy vocations to the priesthood.
The Eucharistic Congress scheduled to be held at the Cathedral Basilica of Ss. Peter & Paul in Philadelphia from Friday, October 9 through Saturday, October 10 has been POSTPONED until October 2021.
