Attention Parishioners

Ministry to our Homebound Members – We would like to provide the opportunity for our homebound parishioners to have Holy Communion on Saturday or Sunday following Mass, by inviting parishioners who may be interested in taking Communion to one or two parishioners following the weekend Mass. Please contact Sr. Linda if you are interested in providing this opportunity for one or two of our parishioners who may live near you.  Sr. Linda: 814-934-0699 or 814-742-7894. 

CARE FOR THE SICK – We want to remind parishioners again, that if you have a family member who is sick or hospitalized, it is important that you contact us if you should want us to pay a visit to them. Due to HIPPA Laws, we are not informed by the hospital when our parishioners are admitted or seriously ill.  We depend on a call from you.
