Dear Friend of Annunciation B.V.M. Parish,
In 2005 the Padre Pio Committee was formed to honor our beloved St. Pio who loved and adored the Blessed Mother. Every year, in September, we honor St. Pio with a Novena and Celebration. At a very young age, St. Pio had a special gift of visions of Our Lord, the Blessed Mother and his Guardian Angel as they guided him on his quest to spread love by sacrificing and dedicating his life of service for the community. This September will mark the fourteenth year Annunciation and the Padre Pio Committee has followed in St. Pio’s footsteps by bringing us together to celebrate his life and to continue our devotion and faith through our community spirit. As always, we will honor St. Pio with a nine-day Novena of Masses which will begin on September 14th and end with a Dinner on September 23rd his Feast Day.
Not only is this annual Novena and Dinner a celebration honoring St. Pio but it is also one of the primary fundraisers held for our parish community. We come to you today asking for your financial support to offset the expenses that will be incurred as we plan and organize this Novena and Dinner. You have all been faithful supporters of Annunciation B.V.M. Parish in the past and we are extremely grateful for your continual generous contributions. All sponsor names will be displayed during the Novena on an easel in the back of the Church and at the Dinner. A donor pamphlet will also be distributed thanking all contributors.
The Novena was started not only to honor St. Pio but to place a much needed emphasis on how important our Annunciation community is to all of us. Through this Novena, we continue to strengthen our community traditions and our devotion to Our Lord and the Blessed Mother just as St. Pio had done all his life.
We hope that you will again support this event. If so please complete the enclosed form and return it along with your donation to the Rectory office by September 5th. Dinner tickets can also be purchased by way of this form or call the rectory at 215-334-0159. You may also call Mario Mangini at 215-519-1495 and Mary Hardy at 215-271-2331 for more information. We will be happy to come and pick up your form and donation as well as drop off your purchased tickets for the dinner.
Thanking you in advance for your generosity and may God bless you,
Rev. Nick Martorano, O.S.A., Pastor
