Parish Book Club Conversations: Great American Prophets

On Tuesday evenings in April and May, we’ll have a parish book club focused on Daniel Cosacchi’s Great American Prophets: Pope Francis’s Models of Christian Life. Dr. Cosacchi is VP of Mission and Ministry at the University of Scranton, and was our Lenten Mission speaker in March.

Deacon Tom Baker will be the conversation leader. The meetings are scheduled for April 16, 23, 30 and May 7 and 14 at 7:00 PM, and they will last one hour. We will meet in person in the Spiritual Reading Room. Registration is limited to 14 people; if there is interest, we’ll form a second group at another time.

Participants will be asked to purchase the book in advance (St. David the King still has a few extra copies!) of the first meeting and read the introduction and Chapter One.

For questions, please reach out to deacontombaker@gmail.com.

Young Adult Ministry – Night At The Ballpark!

On Friday, April 19th join St. David the King’s Young Adult Ministry in watching the Philadelphia Phillies defeat the Chicago White Sox. Whether you are a baseball fan or not, the evening will be full of fun and fellowship!

The game starts at 6:40 PM, but we will tailgate before the game in M Lot (see Phillies Parking Map). If you plan on coming late, not to worry! We can send you your ticket to park and enter the stadium. Depending on availability and pricing, we will sit in either the first or second deck.

The cost for this event is $50 (cash or check dropped off to the Front Office). This covers your ticket and a lite pre-game dinner (i.e., sandwiches from Wawa). Feel free to bring any adult beverages for the tailgate ahead of time. The Church will not provide additional food inside the ballpark (reminder that Citizens Bank Park is a cashless venue). Register on Flocknote before April 12th.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Matthew Simms (609-275-7111 (ext. 202) | msimms@stdavidtheking.com).

Word Life Night – March 24th from 5:00 – 6:30 PM

The goal of this Life Night is to give the teens a basic understanding of Scripture that sparks a desire to read and pray Scripture more. This Life Night provides teens with the fundamentals to make Scripture less intimidating. The session presents the basic structure of the Bible so teens can see the big picture.

At the start of the Life Night, we will tie-dye t-shirts! See the design below:
