A Message from the Pastor

A Message from the Pastor…

On behalf of the entire Holy Family Parish Community, I want to take this opportunity to extend to you and your loved ones a joyous and blessed Advent Season. May the coming of Christ into our lives as a child in Bethlehem and in so many other ways each and every day, give us hope in the never ending love and mercy of our God.

Plan to join us, either in person or online, as the Advent Season unfolds and prepare your hearts and homes to receive the treasure of God’s Son.

As always, please feel free to contact me with your prayer requests at 814.446.5759 or via email at [email protected].

Best wishes, blessings and prayers,

Father Willie Lechnar, Pastor
