Upcoming Activities

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).

Steubenville Youth Conference

This summer, St. David the King’s Youth Ministry will bring a group of 10 high schoolers to the Steubenville Youth Conference in Steubenville, Ohio. For those that don’t know, Steubenville is high-energy Youth Conference where thousands of teens are invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, small group discussions and fellowship with other teens. I can personally attest to the transformative nature of the Conferences as it was the place where I decided to make my faith my own, finally interiorizing the faith my parents passed down to me. I invite you to attend the Steubenville Youth Conference this summer and see your faith grow in ways you never imagined.

Visit the Youth Ministry page for more details and to register!

Young Adult Ministry – Trivia Night

On Tuesday, April 30th join St. David the King’s Young Adult Ministry in competing for prizes at a Trivia Night! We will gather for the weekly Trivia Night at Tavern on the Lake, which starts at 6:00 PM. There is no fee for this event, but feel free to purchase food or drinks at the restaurant!

No registration is required, but let us know you are coming by responding on Flocknote or reaching out to Matthew Simms (609-275-7111 (ext. 202) | msimms@stdavidtheking.com).

Youth Ministry – In Sense Inc. Life Night

This Life Night explores questions about Sacred Scripture and encourages evangelization through Scripture in fun and relatable ways. The content of this session introduces the Church’s interpretation of Scripture through different senses. The engaging content keeps teens interested and increases their desire to learn more. Even your most spiritually mature and theologically well-educated teens are sure to take something from this robust Life Night.

The goal of this Life Night is to answer common questions about Sacred Scripture and give teens practical ways to incorporate Scripture into their daily lives.

Holy Saturday

Holy Saturday will consist of the Blessing of the Baskets at 11:00 AM. At night, we will welcome the candidates and catechumens officially into the Catholic Church! Please join us in celebrating with Cesar Pinto, Carla Lozano Pinto, Alejandro Pinto, Nicholas Pinto, Hayden McDade, Gabriel Orlando, and Isabel Orlando at the Easter Vigil at 8:00 PM.

Good Friday

On Good Friday, there will be a Liturgy of the Passion at 3:00 PM, starting at the biblically referenced time to when Christ died on the Cross! Later that night, Deacon Tom Baker will lead us through Stations of the Cross at 7:00 PM.
