Message from Bishop Ronald W. Gainer

The fact that the evil of child sex abuse has occurred in our Church causes all of us great sadness, for once again we come face-to-face with the horror that innocent children were the victims of egregious crimes committed against them. Many of those victimized as children continue, as survivors, to suffer from the harm they experienced. In my own name, and in the name of the Church of Harrisburg, I ask for forgiveness for the sinfulness of those who have committed these crimes and helped create an environment that tolerated or accepted this behavior.

As we willingly acknowledge our sinfulness, as we humbly seek the forgiveness of those who have been wronged, the healing will come to the entire Church when we renew our commitment each day to respond to the call to holiness we all share and to the mission of our Church entrusted to us by the Lord Jesus himself.

While we seek forgiveness in the name of our Church, we encourage survivors to come forward so that their healing may begin.


– Bishop Ronald Gainer

Scam Alert

 Don’t Get Scammed!
Scammers are now posing as priests and other clergy. In this latest scam, you might receive an email that appears to be from your Pastor or another priest that you may know.  The scammer would ask you to help someone in need by purchasing a gift card, and then providing the codes to that card to the scammer who is posing as clergy.
Here’s how to protect yourself from being scammed:

1 – Know that scammers are out there. Be suspicious of any request for funds of any type via an email message. Verify any request with a call to the person who supposedly sent it.

2 – Know that any email from a priest should be from a diocesan or parish email account. Messages sent from free services, such as Gmail or Yahoo, are more likely to be scammers.

3 – Know that priests will NEVER ask for financial transactions via email.
