Catholic Schools Week got a fitting kick-off at St. Cornelius Parish in Chadds Ford as Msgr. Gregory Parlante, the pastor, celebrated 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, Jan. 25 with a full church of parishioners including many students of the parish school. After Mass the school hosted an open house for parishioners and others to see the good news of Catholic education. In addition to a Saturday evening vigil Mass, St. Cornelius celebrates four Masses each Sunday at 7:30, 9 and 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. The church is located at 160 Ridge Road in Chadds Ford, Delaware County.

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.
