Monthly Pieta Prayer:

God of All Blessings, we come with hearts of gratitude for our lives, our families, our country, and those who protect her. As we honor All Holy Saints, and we pray for the Holy Souls, guide our intercessions toward a more unified and holy Church. Amen.

 

Our Mission Statement

The parish of The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (a.k.a. St. Mary’s) is staffed by the Missionaries of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in the Diocese of Harrisburg. Our parish celebrates the good news of Jesus Christ in giving witness to His real presence in our lives and community. We strive to express our faith through prayer, in the Liturgy of the Holy Eucharist, forming and strengthening our faith by embracing and teaching the good news of the Gospel. Trusting in the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we comfort and give hope to the sick and the grieving and reach out to those in spiritual and material need. With compassion and love, we offer hospitality, warmly welcoming all people to share the joy and peace of Christ.
