monthly budgets. To assist people with these rising
costs, the Pennsylvania Home Heating Fuel Assistance
Rebate Program (LIHEAP) is now in progress.
This Fuel Assistance Program is available to people of
all ages within the income guidelines. For example,
individuals with a monthly income less than $1,485, or a
two-person household with a monthly income under
$2,002 qualify for the grant. Call United Social Services
at 215-923-1900 Monday through Friday between
10:00AM and 4:00PM. A staff worker will explain the
eligibility requirements, answer your questions and assist
you in completing an application. This grant is provided
to all who qualify and does not have to be repaid. All
inquiries are strictly confidential.

ANNUNCIATION B.V.M.
HONORING MARY THROUGH PRAYER
Our Sodality has been a part of the Annunciation Parish
for over 100 years. Unfortunately, many of the churches
in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia no longer have these
devotions. That is why we are hoping you will help us to
carry on this beautiful tradition. Sodality sits in the
middle pews every Sunday at the 11:00AM Mass.
