St. Kateri Parishioners

Now that we are at “Shelter at home” status, there have been further restrictions. It just makes me very sad to have to close everything down, and I still have not come to terms with the fact that we can’t have Easter Triduum Services. However, this is our “cross” and we must believe God is teaching us something. At the time of publication, and due to the “shelter at home” mandate, ALL Holy Week Masses and services have been cancelled. This includes Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. I will be saying all the Rites privately.Please pray at home. There will be NO public Masses. There will NO confessions. Unfortunately, the church will be closed until this is lifted. I pray for a miracle- If you need anything call and I will do what I can.
Blessings,
Fr. George

St. Kateri Parishioners

Dear St. Kateri parishioners,
Due to Bishop Mark's directives, we have no choice but to suspend Masses at St. Kateri until further notice. Also, in light of the distance, it is not feasible to have the church building open. However, St. John's in Bellefonte will be open. Usually, St. John's is open Monday-Friday 7am-3pm; Saturday 9am-6pm; Sundays 7am-noon. Fr. George will be available on the weekends and you are encouraged to stop in and visit as much as you like. Spiritual materials will be available in the church for some structured prayer. Confessions will be at the normal time - Saturdays at 4pm.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. George

Blue Army Shrine

Mandie, Abby and Ala Stitzer, Brett Turner and fiancé Rachel Shellenberger and Millie Turner had the opportunity to attend the wonderful Fatima celebration at the Blue Army Shrine in Washington, New Jersey on Sunday August 13, 2017. There were over 5,000 people at the celebration and Mass at the beautiful shrine to celebrate our Lady's 4th apparition to the three shepherd children in Fatima, Portugal. The two angels in the photo are Abby and Ala who participated in the 3 processions at the shrine. We prayed the rosary, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and our good bye to the Fatima statue of our Lady all in procession. it is a short 3 hour drive to the shrine and it is highly recommended to make a visit to the peaceful site for reflection and prayer
