    Sunday of the Forefathers
    December 15

    The two last Sundays before the Nativity of Christ are called the Sunday of the Holy Forefathers and the Sunday of the Holy Fathers. The Holy Forefathers and Fathers are the Old Testament relatives according to the flesh of our Lord Jesus Christ, beginning with the holy ancestors Adam and Eve, Abel, Seth, Enoch, Noah, and his sons, the holy patriarch Abraham, and so on up to the glorious Nativity of Christ.

    We honor all the righteous of the Old Testament, including those who became the Savior’s ancestors according to the flesh, because these people burned like candles of God in the darkness of paganism, and lived in the hope of the coming of the Messiah and mankind’s deliverance from slavery to the devil, sin, and death.

    HOLIDAY GIFT CARD, 2019

    As we enter the season of giving, OLPH will participate with the United Way of Bucks County’s Holiday Gift Card Drive for Older Kids and Teens. Parishioners are  requested to donate gift cards of any denomination, starting at $5.00, or cash for gift cards. The donations should be designated as Holiday Gift Card and placed in the collection basket by Sunday, December 15. The donations will be taken to the United Way of Bucks County for distribution to local teens and older kids who are experiencing a true need this holiday season.  

    Suggestions – Skip gift cards with activation fees or fees for inactivity. Select gift cards that older kids or teens would enjoy. Examples: mall stores (Game Shop, Barnes & Noble, super-stores (Target, Walmart), and fast food restaurants.

    Over the years, the parishioners  of OLPH have been supportive and very generous in holiday giving projects. Thank you. Your continued generosity is greatly appreciated.
