St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Fogelsville, has canceled its Lenten evening prayer services through March 31.

Morning Lenten confession and prayer is scheduled until April 1 and the youth egg coloring and community Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for April 3 and 4 is also canceled.

Pastor Nelson Quinones may still be reached in case of any emergencies by calling the church office.

For any type of assistance (groceries, errands, etc.), do not hesitate to call the office.

There are several church members willing to help. For information, call 610-395-5535.


Ziegels Church, 9990 Church Road, Breinigsville, has canceled all activities, meetings and worship services until at least March 30.

For more information, call the church office at 610-285-6157.


Parkland Community Library, 4422 Walbert Ave., South Whitehall, recently provided the following update on its services through the library’s weekly Enewsletter.

The library is following Gov. Tom Wolf’s closures and social distancing measures.

This will delay the move to the Roma building and projected opening until the COVID-19 shutdown is lifted.

All items borrowed by patrons before the closing on Feb. 10 will have a new due date of May 1 and will not incur overdue fines.

Library programs are suspended until further notice and its temporary location in the Roma building is closed to the public.

The North Whitehall Township book drop is also closed. Patrons are encouraged to check regularly for updates.
