Thank you for a Successful Mass & Brunch!

March 3rd, 2019 A.D.R.O.P. gathered for the annual Mass & Brunch fundraiser. An opportunity to give thanks, unite with friends, and break bread together the event was full of smiles and laughter. Ellen and Anthony DeCarlo were honored for their many years of service to A.D.R.O.P.


Many thanks to all who supported this event, especially to the Gallagher Family for once again sponsoring the event.; to the Faustman, Purcaro, and Bushar families for sponsoring tables.; to Sanctuary for the music; to the Augustinian Province of St. Thomas of VIllanova for allowing us to use the space; to the Augustinians for celebrating mass, and to Jessica Eischen and the Augustinian Volunteers (former and present) who helped with set up and preparation.

We’ll see you at the Walk in June!

A.D.R.O.P. to attend Nuns on the Bus Town Hall for Justice

NETWORK Lobby’s Nuns on the Bus is hitting the road -- for the first time in two years -- to hold elected officials accountable for their votes on the 2017 tax law and attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act. This time last year, Republicans in Congress were hard at work to enact a tax law that overwhelmingly benefits the wealthy over working people. This new law gives 83% of the benefits to the wealthiest 1% and threatens funding for Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.

Join us in PHILADELPHIA at the next stop on the Nuns on the Bus tour—a month-long tour with rallies, lobbying visits, and town halls spanning from coast to coast. It will culminate in a Tax Justice Parade and Fiesta for the Common Good in Mar-a-Lago.
