Parish Thanksgiving Celebration
Our parish staff joins me in inviting you to our Parish Thanksgiving Dinner. Our 7th Annual Thanksgiving Celebration will be held Sunday, November 20. We will gather at 4:00pm in the church where I will lead us all in Evening Prayer. Dinner will begin at 4:30pm in the Gymnasium. Everything for our feast will be provided. Please bring non-perishable food items to the church or to the gym. These food items will be given to local food pantries to assist their efforts to feed those in our area who are hungry.
This is a very busy time of year but we hope that you can join us and be a part of our celebration. It will be my first time spending Thanksgiving with you here at OMGC. I’m told this is an exceptionally peaceful and enjoyable gathering.
We need to know how much turkey and cranberries to order. So, if you can attend, please RSVP by Friday, November 11th. You can make your reservation by either calling (610-525-0147) or emailing (firstname.lastname@example.org) the Parish Office, or dropping a note in the collection basket with your name, contact information and the number of people attending. Better yet, just complete this online form!
Thank you to all who are a part of making this parish Thanksgiving celebration happen.

Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Program
Two Win/Win PA Tax Credit Programs
The Pennsylvania tax credit programs known as EITC and OSTC represent a win/win situation for families in need as well qualifying businesses and individuals. For pennies on the dollar, you can make a donation to qualifying scholarship organizations like Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools (BLOCS) or the Foundation for Catholic Education, designate the private school of your choice as the recipient of your generosity, receive up to a 90% credit on your state taxes, and claim a deduction on your federal taxes.
All 119 parish elementary schools, 17 Archdiocesan high schools, 4 Archdiocesan Schools of Special Education, and 15 Independence Mission Schools are eligible to receive these tax credit program donations.
Philadelphia is the birthplace of Catholic education in our country and our schools have provided a high quality education rooted in Gospel values for over two centuries. There are many families who want to provide their children with the lifelong benefits our schools can offer. You can help them overcome financial challenges, enable them to say yes to Catholic education, and receive substantial tax benefits by participating in the EITC/OSTC programs.
