On Sunday, May 6, 1973: the former Christian Tabernacle Church of Chester was founded by Elder Reuben T. Jones Jr. and opened its doors at 2229 W. Ninth St., Chester. Jones started this ministry with Brenda Stallings, Shirley Truitt, Mozelle Dixon, Lillie Williams, Anna Wiggins, Betty Jones (Brooks), Arlene Richardson and the late Helen Harris, Oscar Truitt, Maxine Brown, and Wilma Banks. As word spread of this new ministry, families from all over the tri-state area united with the Christian Tabernacle Church family.
Although this ministry in Chester no longer exists, many preachers, evangelists and pastors were birthed from this ministry and are still preaching the Gospel. On Sunday, Sept. 9 at 3:30 p.m. 50 years later, we will honor and celebrate our founder. This service will be held at Healing Balm Ministries, 1510 Walter Ave., Sharon Hill. Many are coming from far and near to honor and celebrate our spiritual father.
St. Madeline Church, 400 Morton Ave., Ridley Park, will celebrate a Mass for First Responders at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 10. The special Mass is St. Madeline Parish’s way of showing their gratitude to all first responders and praying together for their divine protection.
All members of law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical services, auxiliary and public safety communications are invited to attend. Honorees are welcome to wear their dress uniforms or their job uniforms.
Sept. 11, Patriot Day, is a time to remember, pray and honor all who tragically perished, and to pray for all police, rescue, firefighters, and all brave men, women and young people who continue to serve their communities. Readers are asked to share the invitation with all First Responders and their friends and families.
On Saturday, Sept. 9, from 10 a.m. to noon, St. Madeline will hold a pull-up food drive to stock St. Katharine Drexel Food Pantry in Chester, helping those in need.
The Knights of Columbus will be on hand, in front of the St. Madeline Spiritual Life Center on Tome Street in Ridley Park to collect nonperishable groceries, as well as nonfood items such as paper products, laundry and bar soap, personal care items and cleaning products.
