Freedom in Christ is a 3-day retreat led by clergy and lay leaders from The Church of the Good Samaritan, and is under the spiritual leadership of Reverend Richard Morgan. The program was developed by the Lazarus Center in Ambridge, PA.
The retreat combines biblical teaching, small group activities and private time to study and reflect. FIC is a retreat for those who are serious about growing in their relationship with Jesus as Savior and Lord.

For nearly 40 years, Amnion Pregnancy Center in Drexel Hill has been providing free services for women and families dealing with unplanned pregnancies. Since 2005, Good Samaritan has provided financial support to this Christian-based ministry. In addition, many parishioners contribute to Amnion through their annual "Baby Bottle Campaign" held in the fall.
The twelve days of Christmas, perhaps more popularized by the seasonal carol than the liturgical season, hold within them a certain kind of magic. This short season is marked by the birth narrative of Jesus Christ, including the events leading up to his birth, and beckons us to enter into the story with a kind of awe and wonder. Awe and wonder are certainly appropriate postures when reflecting on the birth of Jesus.
On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, about a dozen volunteers from 6th grade to 60 years old worked in the freezing rain, hauling 400 fir trees off a loaded tractor trailer. A job that would have otherwise taken all morning and into early afternoon was completed in less than an hour! That energy and enthusiasm would turn out to be the spirit of the next several weekends.
