DIOPA Connections

The Parish to Parish Weekly has been renamed, DIOPA Connections – The Ties that Bind: News By and For the Parishes of the Diocese of Pennsylvania to reflect the connections between the churches in our diocese and the beloved community. Let us know what you think of the new title. This newsletter is intended to be a simple way of communicating to everyone on our email list what is happening in the local parishes. If you want to submit an article about your event in the weeks to come, it should be sent to J.D. Lafrance at by Wednesday no later than 10 a.m. for distribution later that day. Articles must be kept to 150 words. We will include activities and programs happening in parishes, job openings, and items parishes may wish to share or sell. You may continue to submit articles, flyers, etc. to the website as has been done previously.  Please feel free to duplicate copies for those who are not receiving it on email.
