Catholic Schools in the Diocese are preparing for a week-long celebration of Catholic education, including enrolling students for next school year and introducing new students and parents to the benefits of attending a diocesan school.
So what’s actually cooking in rectories and parish kitchens around the Diocese? Here’s your chance to get behind the scenes and see the culinary creativity that happens when our priests hang up their vestments and slip on their aprons to make dinner. At the same time, you can have some fun, see a completely different side of our priests, and support parishes and the food ministries of Catholic Charities.
The Christmas Season, already a time of great hope and joy, will be the setting for another joyous event when the newest priest in the Diocese of Allentown is ordained.
Christus Natus Est! Christ Is Born! This ancient Christmas greeting fills our hearts with great joy at a time when such a message is needed most in our world so beleaguered by a devastating year of pandemic, civil violence, coarse words, and natural disasters. It would be good to remind ourselves that Mary and Joseph also faced many challenges and uncertainties as they became the Holy Family of Nazareth.
