Bishop Mark has announced the return of the Sunday and Holy Day Mass obligation in the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown beginning August 15, 2021. Local Catholics have not been obligated to attend Mass since March of 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bishop made the announcement in a July 15, 2021, pastoral letter to the faithful of Altoona-Johnstown. In the letter, Bishop Mark shared heartfelt sentiments from parishioners with whom he has spoken. The Bishop reminded the faithful that our parish churches are our spiritual home, and extended a warm invitation for everyone to start anew. 

FALL FEST 50/50 TICKETS have been placed in this week’s bulletin.  The tickets are $1.00 each or 6 tickets for $5.00.  Two packets of 6 tickets have been placed in each envelope.  If you would like more, they have been placed in the back of the Church on the shelf.   Please help to make this a great 50/50 by taking more tickets and selling them to people outside the Church.  Sold tickets can be placed in the Offertory Baskets or returned to the Church Office.  The drawing will take place at the Fall Fest, October 24th

FALL FEST   Fall Fest is scheduled for Sunday, October 24th and parishioners are being asked to help make this event a success by donating baskets to be raffled, gift cards and lottery tickets.  If you have a theme basket(s) to donate, they can be dropped off at the Church Office Monday through Thursday mornings.  Also lots of help will be needed to setup, cleanup or work during the festival. Please mark your calendars now for a day of fun and fellowship and watch the bulletin for more information.
