Lenten Meditation Book

Liturgical Press has published a Lenten meditation book written by OMGC’s very own Michelle Francl-Donnay:

Not by Bread Alone 2018

We purchased a large number of the books for use of our parishioners, but we ran out of them and the publisher is sold out. 

It’s still possible to order the e-Book in various formats (Kindle, Nook, PC, Mac and others) from the publisher for 99 cents:



The Bishops of the United States prescribe, as minimal obligation, that all persons who are fourteen years of age and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018, on all the Fridays of Lent and Good Friday. Further, all persons eighteen years of age and older, up to and including their fifty-ninth birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single full meal on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday, while the other two meals on those days are to be light.

All the faithful are encouraged, when possible, to participate at Mass and to receive the Holy Eucharist daily, to celebrate frequently the Sacrament of Penance, to undertake spiritual reading, especially the study of the Sacred Scriptures, and to participate in parish Lenten devotions as well as Lenten education programs. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is especially recommended.

All are encouraged to participate in Operation Rice Bowl which has aided countless hungry persons here in the Archdiocese as well as throughout our nation and our world.

Cross and Light

As part of our Lenten Friday Night Series, we are looking to attend CROSS AND LIGHT. We are hoping to get a group to go as a parish on Friday March 9 at 7PM at St. John Bosco’s in Hatboro. This promises to be an emotionally moving experience for all.

Tickets are available for $25 and $40. To purchase tickets on your own, please go to www.crossandlight.org and select St. John Bosco, Hatboro. If you would like to sit together as a parish, please call the parish office at 610-525-0147 to reserve your tickets. Tickets are going quickly!

Prayer at OMGC

Here at Our Mother of Good Counsel, each Monday through Saturday morning, we celebrate Morning Prayer in common following the 8:00am Mass. Everyone is invited (around 8:30am) to join us in the daily chapel for this beautiful way to begin the day!
