WHEN MORE THAN 1,500 priests and deacons descend from Pope Francis' altar on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway next month to distribute Communion, some of the wafers they carry will have been made by the Poor Clares, a group of cloistered nuns in Langhorne who've been baking altar breads for 98 years. "You never think: 'Who produces these things? Where do they get them?' They just appear magically," says Sister Anne. "So it's a very humble way to participate, which is part of our life, to sort of be hidden.

Hello there Sue had 58 years of memories in the Lower Makefield home where she and her late husband, Fred, raised their four children, but by 2012, it mostly felt really big and really empty. "I felt I had to get someplace where there were people," she said. Yet on the day she moved into her new apartment at Attleboro, a Langhorne retirement village, she wondered if she'd made a mistake. Then she saw someone familiar in the large corridor everyone calls Main Street. "Bob!"

A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 25, for Nancy Boyd Tickel, 75, a teacher and Langhorne resident, who died of leukemia Tuesday, May 7, at St. Mary Medical Center. A New York state native, Mrs. Tickel moved to Bucks County in the early 1960s. She taught in the Pennsbury School District for 23 years, 18 years at Edgewood Elementary School and five at Quarry Hill Elementary. Mrs. Tickel was a warm person, and that was reflected in her classroom technique. Many still remember her taking a pupil onto her lap and singing "Baby Face," or teaching that student the words to "John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt.

A small-town mayor's surprise resignation raises all sorts of burning questions - such as, who's gonna perform wedding ceremonies? After running unopposed for a second term as mayor in November, Jeff Minton left the Borough Council at the altar by announcing his resignation in early January. He also left no one to perform one of the mayor's most illustrious duties: conducting rites of matrimony. The seemingly symbolic function can generate extra cash for the borough - or for the mayor.

After getting off to a decent start this season, reality has set in for Langhorne, the newest entry in the Pen-Del League. The Knights, who were 3-3 at one point, have lost 12 games in a row following Monday night's 8-2 loss to Upper Moreland. But Dave Rossi, one of two individuals who helped spearhead the drive to start the new franchise, is not discouraged. "The league is a lot better than I expected," said Rossi, who plays first base and the outfield. "I knew it would be good.

The borough is having an identity crisis - again. The historic, blink-and-you're-through-it town has been suffering the indignity of having its name associated with car dealerships and strip malls on nearby Business Route 1 since the Langhorne post office moved to Middletown in 1976. Now, some council members want to leave the name of Langhorne behind altogether and adopt one of the borough's two former names, Attleboro or Four Lanes End. The issue, which comes up every few years, according to Mayor Jeff Minton, was resurrected again in July by Councilwoman Carol Zetterberg, who proposed forming a committee to study the feasibility of such a change.

The half-square-mile town of Langhorne is home to halfway houses for the mentally and physically disabled, to a home for troubled teenage boys and to the Red Cross and numerous other nonprofit groups. Until recently, all were welcomed with nary a snarl from residents, hardly a protest at a zoning hearing, barely any lament over lost tax revenues. But this summer, the borough's spirit of giving was strained to the breaking point. Some residents successfully rallied against the St. James Episcopal Church's attempt to set up a shared house for low- and middle-income people.

It's farewell to two landmarks on East Lincoln Highway (Business Route 1) in Langhorne - the Seafood Shanty and the Roosevelt Flea Market. The next-door neighbors served the area for a combined total of 53 years. Joe Gentile's Seafood House, once the flagship of the Seafood Shanty chain, has closed its doors after operating for just four months. It is not easy to explain what happened to the restaurant that was the first of the chain of 14 Shanties, all of which have been operating under Chapter 7 bankruptcy laws since June 1990.

Three employees of a Langhorne restaurant were burned, two of them critically, in a natural-gas explosion last night, moments after an alarm warned them of a dangerous gas buildup, a restaurant manager said. The manager said the employees did not know what the warning signal meant. The explosion rocked the York Steak House in the Oxford Valley Mall about 40 minutes after the 9:30 p.m. closing time, said David Chapman, the restaurant's general manager. The explosion extensively damaged the kitchen and sent debris flying about 75 feet into the mall corridors, he said.

Loretta Luff had taken a break from her Sunday wash when she sat down at her living room desk, and began checking e-mail and playing spider solitaire on her laptop. The Braves were beating the Phillies on the TV behind her, and her toy poodles, Marie and Gigi, rested nearby. Then, said Luff, 72, her Dell Inspiron exploded, spraying battery acid and computer parts all over her and the carpet, as far as eight feet behind her. "The computer blew back, and everything else came toward me," Luff said Monday.

Hello there Melissa rushed from her Neshaminy School District teaching job to the November 2009 United Synagogue Youth Conference, held in Merion Station that year, where members of the high school youth group she advised were waiting. She made it just in time for the Friday sundown service. After Shabbat dinner, she smiled at all the familiar faces, and noticed another, handsome and unknown. Perhaps he was an Israeli, brought in to talk to the USY members about life in Israel?

Hello there On a Monday in January 2010, DJ was in the chair for his appointment with Dr. Rosen, his dentist since childhood. "Before she could even start doing my checkup, she ran out of the room, and said she'd be right back," DJ remembered. Dr. Rosen returned with her business card, the name "Colie" and a phone number written on the back. "Do me a favor, and call this girl," Dr. Rosen suggested, promising that Colie was a wonderful, outgoing person, and predicted they'd click.

Bigfooted by fete I live in a high-rise opposite the Made in America concert site with my son and, on weekends, his three young children. If the event increases revenues for the city and raises funds for charity, I'm all for its return. I'm OK with the traffic and road closures, noise, and crowds. My problem is any destruction left by heavy equipment, which can turn our beautiful Parkway field into mud and leave tire tracks. Apartment living isn't easy for exuberant preschoolers.
