All public Masses in the Diocese of Erie suspended until further notice

A letter of encouragement from Bishop Persico to the Faithful

Dear Parishioners,

I hope and pray that you are all doing well, at this most difficult time. In the absence of Public Masses, I highly recommend that you continue to pray, and to avail yourselves of the many opportunities to watch Sunday and Daily Masses, on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). Please know that I am offering Mass daily for you and your intentions.

The Blessed Sacrament is Exposed for Adoration, at the side door of the Church. I know this is not ideal in that you must stay outside.  Many of you have told me that it is a comfort toyou to know the Lord's Real Presence, as you come to him in Adoration.

Many of you have inquired about Confession. To keep us all safe and healthy, and having considered several possibilities, I have decided that I will hear Confessions outside, in the open air. Please phone the Parish Office at 814-382-7252, and leave a message to make an appointment. I will return your call when I am available.

I will also be available in emergencies, to Anoint any of the sick or dying. Please phone the Office.

Let us all pray for an end to this pandemic.

May our Lord and His Blessed Mother always watch over us. May Ss. Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael defend and protect us. May the whole world be converted to true Love of God, and our neighbors. Amen

Yours in the Lord Jesus Christ, Father David Carter
