There is a new page on our website called "In Sympathy" designed to inform our parishioners of recent deaths within our parish. With such a large parish it is often difficult to be aware of who has passed away. Our hope is that this will be used as a way to honor those parishioners we have lost as well as inform fellow parishioners of their passing.
This page can be found under the "home" menu on our website at www.stjoanhershey.org or by clicking here.
November 30th from 6:30 to 8:30pm
More information is available here
Bring the Library to Your Door! The Library on Wheels is a free service offered by the Friends of the Hershey Public Library. Volunteers will deliver books, audiobooks, and other materials to residents of Derry Township who are homebound or would find it physically difficult to come to the library.
A library card can be easily obtained without leaving your home!
For more information, or to sign up, call the library’s circulation desk at 717-533-6555.
“What is happiness and how can I find it?” may be one of the most frequently asked questions there is. Perhaps that’s because it is so hard to experience lasting happiness.
In The Saints’ Guide to Happiness, Robert Ellsberg suggests that some of the best people to show us are holy men and women throughout history—from St. Augustine to Flannery O’Connor, Thomas Merton to St. Theresa of Avila and Mother Theresa.
These people weren’t saints because of the way they died or their visions or wondrous deeds. They were saints because of their extraordinary capacity for goodness and love, which—in the end—makes us happy.
