As we face this unprecedented time of pandemic, our parish is making necessary adjustments to assist the well-being of our community while also providing for the spiritual care of our members. This page will be updated regularly with information and resources.

The public celebration of Mass, Confession, and devotions has been temporarily suspended. You can find information regarding Bishop Gainer's decision at our Diocesan website.

I will be publishing videos regularly to my YouTube channel and adding them to the list below. This will include Sunday homilies and other reflections. We are currently exploring the possibility of live streaming  certain liturgies. You can also find us on Facebook. Like and follow our page for the most up-to-date information.

There are many resources to help you keep the Lord's Day holy and maintain your spiritual life during this time. Our Diocesan website has a spiritual communion and a family prayer service, and the website Magnificat has made there online resource free for the time being.

Below is a list of canceled activities. Please be aware that, for the time being, it should be assumed that all activities are canceled unless otherwise specified.

We depend on each of you for the operation of our parish. If you are able, please consider signing up for online giving. It will help us tremendously during this difficult time.

Finally, our parish office will be closed for the foreseeable future. While our staff will work to continue parish operations, there will not be someone present in the office most of the time. We will still be available through e-mail. If you call the parish office, please leave a voicemail and someone will return your call as soon as possible. If you are in need of a priest for a Sacramental emergency, I can be reached at 717-304-5132.

Please be assured of my prayers. You will be remembered each day at Holy Mass.


In Christ,

Father Richards
