MASS OF THANKSGIVING
Hundreds of parishioners and former parishioners attended a Mass of Thanksgiving at Holy Saviour Catholic Church in Linwood on Sunday, July 12, at 4:00pm. This was the last Mass that will be celebrated at Holy Saviour. As a parish, we honored the efforts of past generations and celebrated the faith and pride of the Holy Saviour community. Effective July 15, Holy Saviour was relegated, which means it can no longer be used for sacred workship. We will move forward with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to sell the Holy Saviour property. We will continue to use Immaculate Conception as a workship site for funerals and weddings.

Prayer of the Week
PRAYER TO MARY, MOTHER OF GOD
Mother of the Church, look upon us mercifully at this hour.
Virgin faithful, pray for us. Teach us to believe as you
believed. Make our faith in God, in Christ, in the
Church, always to be serene, courageous, strong, and generous.
Mother worthy of love. Mother of faithful love, pray
for us. Teach us to love God and our brothers and sisters
as you loved them: make our love for others to be
always patient, kindly, and respectful.
Cause of our joy, pray for us. Teach us to be able to
grasp, in faith, the paradox of Christian joy, which
springs up and blooms from sorrow, renunciation, and
union with your sacrificed Son. Make our joy to be
always genuine and full, in order to be able to
communicate it to all. Amen.
