Palm Distribution

We regret that we must cancel distribution of palms this weekend. In light of a recommendation received from the Diocese late Friday afternoon (4/3), the governor’s latest recommendations, and the fact that some stores are now beginning to regulate access, we believe that this difficult choice is the most prudent at the present time. We recognize that the constant changes are frustrating. Let us continue to pray for all those impacted by this pandemic.

Confessions

We regret that, by order of the Bishop, we are currently unable to offer scheduled confession times. If you would like to make an appointment with Fr. Miller or Fr. McElrath to go to confession, please call the parish office at (814) 677-3020 and choose Ext. 4 for Fr. Miller or Ext. 5 for Fr. McElrath.
