Our parish was founded in 2007 and we have moved from shared space in a synagogue in Philadelphia to leased space in Blue Bell to the campus we now own in Flourtown. We have always maintained being inclusive and progressive despite our being Catholic. As Franciscans we also integrate everyone into the life of our community regardless of any limiting or defining factor and are a welcoming place with full integration into the community for LGBTQ persons. We operate a school (infant, pre-k, k) as well as a Historic Cemetery and Friary, too.
Obviously COVID-19 has caused us to close our school and parish, at least in-person gatherings. We maintain virtual worship and online and virtual teaching classes as well as our outreach program to the homeless which has been featured lately on Fox 29 and in the Times Herald. We constantly need supplies and donation to keep our ministry and outreach to the homeless strong. Tom Frey, who led our involvement with the Montgomery County LGBT Business Council, leads our outreach campaign into the streets and our demand and need has substantially increased due to the pandemic.
