mini-hartleIT IS “FATHER” LEVI

Congratulations to Father Levi who was ordained a priest of Jesus Christ by Bishop Zubik this weekend at the Cathedral. Father Levi will return to our parish church July 5, 2015 for the 11:00 am liturgy to celebrate with us as a newly ordained priest. There will be a reception following that liturgy in Marian Hall for those who would like to offer personal best wishes to Father in his new ministry. Father Levi, from all of us: AD MULTOS ANNOS!!!


With the required permits having been acquired from both the Township and County, we have set the date for the dedication of our newly constructed Mausoleum for next Sunday, July 5th beginning at 2:00 pm in the cemetery. All those who would like to see, up close and personal, the beauty of the bronze reliefs and the other features of the Mausoleum, are welcome to join us.

Join us at 10:00 am on July 4th when we celebrate the second of our summertime Holiday Liturgies. A wonderful way to begin this day as we thank our gracious God for the privilege of living in the greatest country that world has ever seen. This 10:00 am liturgy will be the only liturgy on the holiday as we emphasize the ONENESS of our Parish Family around the Altar of the Lord!

On Mission For The Church Alive

As the Diocesan process of “On Mission For The Church Alive” begins to filter down to all of us, the Parish Staff and Pastoral Council have begun to meet together to set the standard for all of us. They will invite others to join them on occasions of prayer and study to deepen our relationship to the Lord Jesus as the center of our parish life. We ask all members of the Parish Family to be on the alert for their participation in this parish process.

Liturgy Aid

Our Campaign for The Church Alive!

We are featured in the video below made by the Diocese of Pittsburgh for our commitment to the process of stewardship. Another shining example of our Parish Family taking a leadership role in the Diocese of Pittsburgh! For more information, please visit

Teaching Liturgy Homily

Open School Registration

If you are looking for a quality Catholic Education, our school is top notch! You will find forms and information here.

Registration is Always Open!

Are you a “registered” member of the Parish Family?  “Registration” means that you are NOW a member of the Parish Family — not to be confused with all those who received their sacraments here at one time but are no longer members NOW. One indication of registration is that you get the mailings that we send to all registered homes. If you do not, we ask that you stop in at the rectory and take a few moments to register so that we can share with you all the facets of our parish life.
