• The Truth About God's Love

    "God is Love" (1 Jn 4:8). Love isn't something God does. It is the essence of who He is. Everytime we love, or experience love, we experience the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth. Knowing that God is love and that we are loved beyond measure is a game changer. It has radical implications for how we see ourselves and others. Love transforms. Divine Love is trying to transform us into the saints we have been called and created to be, and our love for others and ourselves when lived genuinely can transform the world. Check out our parish newszine - The Way, The Truth, and the Life - and this issue's focus, which is on the God, who is Love.

Archbishop Pérez's Virtual Lenten Retreat

Archbishop Pérez has initiated a Virtual Lenten Retreat for all of the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to help us remain close to the Lord in this time. The retreat, “The Power of Faith and Hope in a Time of Uncertainty,” consists of seven 15-minute video reflections from gifted speakers from around the Archdiocese. Six videos are in English and one is in Spanish. The videos in English are also interpreted in American Sign Language.

View the flyer for the schedule, topics and speakers here.

One 15-minute video will be released each day at 7 PM on these pages below. Once released, videos will be available for viewing at any time.

All Public Masses Are Suspended in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Until Further Notice

Though public Masses are suspended in all churches in the Archdiocese, the right and need of the faithful to hear the Word of God and celebrate the Sacraments is not put aside. The pastoral staff of St. Albert the Great is working to provide spiritual resources to our parishioners as we strive to meet the ongoing spiritual, pastoral, and charitable needs of the people we serve.

Priests will continue to offer the sacrifice of the Holy Mass privately during this period and to honor all requested Mass intentions.

Baptisms, Confessions, Marriages, and Funerals will take place as usual but with due regard for the limitation of participants and reasonable social distancing. Please contact the rectory office at 215-947-3500 to inquire about these limitations.

In conjunction with directives already in force in hospitals and institutions, all visits to the sick with Holy Communion, including in private homes, by priests, deacons, and extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion are suspended. In such instances, only priests will be available to celebrate the Sacraments for those in immediate danger of death. In all circumstances, government and health agency directives for group size and social distancing are to be observed as the Archdiocese of Philadelphia strives to meet the pastoral and temporal needs of all those in need.

We will post below resources for Sunday Mass, Scripture reflection, etc., in the days ahead, so please check back here often for the lastest updates and resources available.
