Participants will also discover easy-to-use, practical resources from CRS to enliven their parish community, and be able to network with other parish leaders and representatives.
The program begins at 6 p.m. with a simple supper at no cost.
The auditorium at St. Thomas is located at 1229 East Lancaster Avenue in Rosemont, next to the McDonald’s restaurant on Route 30, with easy access to I-476.

The event is sponsored by Catholic Relief Servies’ Northeast/Mid-Atlantic Region and Nutritional Development Services, with support from the Office for Pastoral Care of Migrants and Refugees and the Office for Life, Family and Laity, both of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
