Please join us for our Fourth Annual Lenten Spiritual Talk. This year’s speaker is Father Michael F. Di Gregorio, O.S.A., Prior Provincial of the Province of St. Thomas of Villanova. Father Di Gregorio will speak about Delaware County local Father Bill Atkinson, O.S.A., the first quadriplegic to be ordained to the priesthood. After his ordination in 1974, Father Atkinson went on to live a life of service and sacrifice, teaching for nearly 30 years at Msgr. Bonner High School. Father Di Gregorio will share insights into Father Atkinson’s extraordinary life and explain the movement promoting the beatification and canonization of this local priest.

Light refreshments will be served.
