From The Pastor: 03-24-2019
Our hundredth year is right around the corner and it is time for us to start revving up to celebrate it! In 1920, the groundbreaking for our parish church on Chocolate Avenue took place and we were placed under the patronage of the newly canonized Saint Joan of Arc. From that auspicious day to the very present, we have continued to build the Kingdom of God in our little part of the world, Hershey, Pennsylvania. It is right for us to celebrate and we have a number of things planned as we move into our centennial year and one of the biggest will be the commencement of a Capital Campaign to begin what we are calling the Saint Joan of Arc Centennial Project. As you have read here in the bulletin these past few years and have seen on our posters in the church and around the parish, this project will provide us with the much-needed space for our parish to continue to flourish–now and in the future. We will be asking you to do something for The Centennial Project—pray for its success, support us financially, and be cheerleaders for its completion—but before we do that WE WANT TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOU! And that will be our KICK-OFF CELEBRATION on Saturday, April 27 at 6:30 pm. It will be a night of celebration, of memories, and of community-building, as we look forward to our next hundred years as the Catholic Church here in Hershey. What will it involve?
