Pastoral Visits

Father Jose is eager to meet parishioners, especially anyone ill or in need of a pastoral visit.  Please let Father know that you would appreciate a visit, and possibly the Sacraments.

Please let us know whether it would be a visit to your home, or at one of the hospitals or personal care homes (please provide room number), and whether you would like to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Holy Eucharist, Sacrament of the Sick, Last Rites.

You can contact the church office at 570-746-1006 or by email at [email protected] to make arrangements.  Father also welcomes your call anytime at his cell phone 570-357-1619.

T-shirt fundraiser

Sue Walter is conducting a T-shirt fundraiser to raise funds 50/50 for our CCD program and the Wyalusing Food Pantry.  The T-shirt features the Church name and location on the left front, and the back “Got God?”  The T-shirt is displayed in the back of the Church along with order forms and a basket in the vestibule.  Colors are blue or white and the cost is $15-20, depending upon size.  Orders are due by 6/18 and should be prepaid.


Eucharistic Procession June 18th

The Eucharistic Procession for the Feast of Corpus Christi will be celebrated on Sunday, June 18th, after the 11:00 Mass.  On this Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Fr. Jose will lead a Procession with the Blessed Sacrament outside and around the block of the church.  Parishioners are invited to walk and pray in this Procession.  If you are unable to participate outside, you can also remain inside the church to pray.  The Procession will return to the church for repose of the Blessed Sacrament.


Our Pies are Famous!

Everybody loves our homemade pies.  We need your help.  Are you a baker?  Homemade pies needed for the Annual Parish Picnic.  (Please, no refrigerated pies.)  If you can bake a pie or two, please call Normal Lee so we can get an accurate count.  Your baking efforts are greatly appreciated!


Basket Raffle

Our summer picnic is in need of baskets for the basket raffle. We’ve had some outstanding baskets in the past, and your help this year will ensure our basket raffle is a huge success.

Some ideas for baskets are:
* gift certificates
* lottery tickets
* cash
* pets items
* gardening items
* kids toys and crafts

You can also “think outside the basket” with items like coolers, bicycles, and lawn chairs.

All raffle baskets should be dropped off at the church or office by the weekend of June 17th/18th. If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
