St. Dominic Savio Parish was founded in 1956.

Created out of four existing parishes, St. Dominic Savio was designed to be a parish for the neighborhood community. Today, that atmosphere of parish family and neighborhood community is still flourishing. St. Dominic Savio is a vibrant parish, thriving with much activity. Our parishioners are living examples of true Christian love. They are supportive of each other, reach out to each other and work together to fulfill the gospel mandate of Jesus Christ.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,

December 31st, 2017|0 Comments

Dear Parishioners: Christmas is always a whirlwind of emotions: of expectation and fulfillment; of anticipation and joy; of feverish planning and glad rejoicing; never more so than when Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday. The priests were certainly busy attending to all of the Masses over these happy days. We are grateful to all those who came together this year to ensure our worship was joy-filled and our churches beautiful. First, I am grateful to our music ministers, to Peggy Pancella and Stephen Jones and our choir members who add so much to our Masses and spend weeks preparing for [...]

The facilities committee for parish planning has been working diligently and making good progress on the accessibility, lighting and sound issues associated with St. George church. We will have more to share about those particular developments in the days to come. In this same vein, I want to reorganize the breezeway between the St. George rectory and church as well as the look [...]

Correction to the Excerpt from November 26, 2017

December 17th, 2017|0 Comments

I was a little surprised in the last week or two to discover that folks are visiting our website (priests in particular) and looking at our bulletin and this column. One person asked me a question about the statistics I included on the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. They came from an article written by Archbishop Chaput himself. My point in including that information was to demonstrate that the forces impacting us are also impacting parishes and dioceses nationwide. All of the numerical information I included from Archbishop Chaput was correct, but I left out one word which you can see in [...]
