Advent and Christmas - 2023
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Once again as we ready our hearts during the Advent season and prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, Christmas greetings are sent to you together with our sincere gratitude for your loyalty and cooperation throughout the year. May the peace and joy of a holy Christmas fill your hearts and those of your loved ones.
Our vibrant parish ministries have hosted many opportunities for our parishioners to serve others. If you are looking to become more involved at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish, please reach out to join a parish ministry. "And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased." Hebrews 13:16.
We encourage you to share the traditional warmth and joy of the season with your family and friends, by joining us in preparing for the season by attending one or more of the many opportunities listed on the Advent and Christmas Schedule of Events. Do not deny yourself this most precious opportunity and gift. Christ awaits you at the Altar. Attend Mass, accept Reconciliation and receive Him in the Eucharist.
May Christ, through Mary, give you and your loved ones a full share of happiness and health during the Advent and Christmas seasons and in the coming New Year. You and your intentions will be remembered in a special way in our prayers and Masses at Christmas.
Devotedly Yours in Christ Jesus,
Monsignor Joseph P. Gentili

Building Our Future:
The Comprehensive Campaign for Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary
LEARN MORE WATCH THIS VIDEO!
Dear Friends in Christ,
Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary is the oldest Catholic institution of higher learning in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. The seminary began in 1832 ~ on the upper floor of Bishop Kenrick’s residence on Fifth Street ~ with five men seeking to respond to God’s call. By 1871, Saint Charles Seminary needed more space and a new home at the intersection of Lancaster and City Line Avenues. Over the past 150 years it has grown and changed at that location. Today, we welcome a diverse array of people each year as they embark on a formational journey to become priests, deacons, catechists, and lay men and women seeking to embrace ministerial roles who will be servant leaders after the Heart of Jesus Christ. As priest alumni of Saint Charles, we are filled with deep gratitude for the way it prepared us to serve the Church we love.
As you know from your own personal experience, spiritual journeys, and the places we call home, evolve over time. The seminary’s ongoing evolution has brought us to a new chapter and the hope-filled prospect of a new home in Lower Gwynedd Township. We look forward to transforming our physical space into one that will flourish as a house of formation preparing priests, deacons, and other leaders for our Church for generations to come.
We are asking you to be a part of the Building Our Future: The Comprehensive Campaign for Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary because we know you share our love for the seminary and its mission. Please partner with us and walk with the seminarians and students who will come to us at the seminary’s new location. While this is an extensive undertaking, together we will ensure that our vibrant seminary community of committed disciples has every opportunity to succeed. Be assured of our prayers for you and your intentions. Saint Charles Borromeo, pray for us!
Sincerely in Christ,
Most Reverend Timothy C. Senior
Auxiliary Bishop of Philadelphia
Chancellor, Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary
Most Reverend Nelson J. Pérez, D.D.
