Dear Parishioners,

Happy Easter! Christ is Risen!
He is Risen indeed! Alleluia! 

Our Readings at Mass this week remind us of the Truth that the Holy Spirit is our Advocate with the Father, and that the Spirit leads us into all Truth. The language used in the Gospel of John is indeed "mystical," and points us to the great mystery of God, but what it says about the "World," is perfectly clear: God loves His World. God loves the world so much, that he gave His only begotten Son so that through Him, the world might be saved. Clearly, the world needs saving. We need salvation. Sin gets in the way. God gives us a remedy, and that remedy is a big dose of Truth in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will lead us into all Truth. He reminds us of Jesus' words: "I am the way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Discussions about opening Churches for Public Mass are proceeding.  Please watch Bishop Persico's "Town Meeting," for the most recent information. 

Be assured of my love and prayers for all of you.

We will continue to Expose the Blessed Sacrament for Adoration, at the side door of the Church. 

For those who would like to come to Confession, please phone the Parish Office at 814-382-7252, and leave a phone number and message to make an appointment. I will return your call when I am available.

Yours in the Lord Jesus Christ, Father David Carter
