As you browse our website, perhaps the first thing that will occur to you is what makes us so unique -- we are a movable feast. With three distinct worship sites, our parish encompasses roughly 350 square miles and is home to a diverse and vibrant community of people who, united in the Catholic Faith, seek to keep the vibrant love of Jesus present in our world.
Responding to Violence & Tragedy
Extreme acts of violence can be traumatic for everyone and especially students. They may struggle to understand feelings of anger, sadness, fear and worry. Students may wonder why it happened and if they are safe. They will often look to adults for information and guidance on how to respond or react. We’ve collected some resources to help provide you with advice on anticipating and answering questions about scary news events, as well as information on the warning signs that may indicate a child is struggling emotionally.
If you would like to discuss your feelings with Father Eschbach, please feel free to contact the rectory at 610-857-3510 to schedule an appointment or contact him directly at email@example.com.
Helping Kids During Crisis from the American School Counselor Association
We need your help.
Our Lady of Consolation will be participating in an international parish survey about discipleship conducted by the Catholic Leadership Institute and we need your help!
Please help us participate by completing a 10-15 minute survey online. The survey can be accessed at www.disciplemakerindex.com from Monday, February 5th to Monday, March 5th and will ask you to reflect on your own spiritual growth and enable you to provide feedback on what efforts the parish is doing to help you grow. All responses will be confidential and the parish will only receive information about the community as whole.
We are trying to get the highest response rate possible. This information will be invaluable to the church and our various ministries as we plan ahead and try to be the best disciples we can be. We will receive the results this spring/summer at which time we will share what we have learned with the entire parish.
If you don’t use the computer - There will be paper copies available at the back of each worship site or you can contact the rectory at 610-857-3510.
Thank you for helping with this important project!
