Memorial Mass 2020

This year’s Mass will take place at Saint Raymond of Penafort Church, Sunday November 1, 2020 at 1:00pm.

We at Bishop McDevitt hope that this transmission finds you happy and healthy.  As always, much is happening here on Royal Avenue.  Classes started back in early September; athletics and activities are ramping up, and the students and teachers have created an amazing example for how to operate a school during a pandemic….leave it to the Lancers!

With all that we are grateful for, it is indeed important that we set aside time in November to acknowledge and celebrate those Lancers who have gone before us.  This tradition is tremendously important to us and despite of the pandemic we are forging ahead, respectful of CDC and County guidelines, in an effort to pay homage to those whose lives continue to inspire us.


There are two options for participation in this annual Memorial Mass:

In person at Saint Raymond’s located at 1350 East Vernon Road – Philadelphia, PA 19150

We are hopeful that you can join us through one of the two options as we remember and celebrate our classmates, teachers, and friends of our beloved Bishop McDevitt.
