Sacred Heart parish in Royersford recently opened the Fellowship Café, a place for parishioners to gather for light refreshments. The parish mission to “Love God, Love Others, and Make Disciples,” is accomplished in the Fellowship Café each week.
To celebrate, Sacred Heart hosted a Grand Opening for the community on Sunday, April 19. Pastor Reverend Peter J. DiMaria began with a blessing. Cindy Irrera, President of the Sacred Heart Parish Council, welcomed the crowd and spoke about the history of planning the Café. Those most influential in the Café project included planner Joe Getley, architect Pat Fergus, contractor Greg Kozel, and Café manager Christine Klag. In attendance were Mark Dehnert, Board President of Spring-Ford School District and State Representative Tom Quigley. Quigley, also a Sacred Heart parishioner, proudly presented the parish with a Certificate of Recognition from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives 146th District, noting the Fellowship Café is a place to grow in faith and camaraderie. The ceremony lead to a ribbon cutting, luncheon buffet, and lively music provided by talented trio Sister Marganne Drago, Thad Shirey, and Terry Shirey.
Through the Fellowship Café, Sacred Heart aims to capture the spirit of community created by the Parish Fair, which occurs each summer. The Parish Fair draws many from the community and beyond, this year it will be held July 15-July 18.
The Café, located at 838 Walnut Street, Royersford, is open each Sunday from 7:00am-1:00pm. Stop by for a visit!
