Father Michael Davis was installed Oct. 24 as the new pastor of Assumption Parish in Feasterville, Bucks County, during the Saturday evening vigil Mass at the church with Bishop Michael Fitzgerald as main celebrant. He also led the official rite of installation for Father Davis, which included handing the keys of the church to the pastor. Father Davis, ordained a priest in 1987, was named pastor of the parish in August. He had served as Assumption’s parochial administrator following the sudden death of the former pastor, Father William McGeown, in May. Assumption Parish was founded in 1950 and today has more than 2,300 registered families. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
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.
