Jesus was baptized and taught his Apostles to do likewise. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. We become members of the Body of Christ and made sharers in her mission. We can’t wait to welcome your child into the life of Christ and our Church through Baptism.

Baptism classes take place during pregnancy. We suggest you do not choose godparents before contacting us.  Contact for more information.


The sacrament of Reconciliation is about the mercy of Jesus Christ. Honestly confessing our sins reconciles us to God and restores us to his grace and intimate friendship. Confession breaks the power of shame and hurt of sin, and restores and revitalizes our relationships within the community of faith in the life of our Church.

 Reconcilation is offered Saturday 4:00 PM to 4:30 PM, or contact the office at or call 814 474-2605 to schedule an appointment.

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. When we faithfully receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, we grow deeper in communion with God and fellowship with one another.

We offer the Eucharist at all of our Masses, and we provide a preparation program for First Communion to children enrolled in our Youth Faith Formation program.

If you’re an adult seeking to receive your First Communion or thinking about becoming Catholic, your next step is Faith Formation.


In Confirmation, Christians receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit and deepening of baptismal graces needed to grow as mature disciples of Christ in the life of the Church. We offer preparation for Confirmation as part of our Youth Faith Formation program.

If you're an adult looking to be confirmed or thinking about becoming Catholic, your next step is Faith Formation.


Jesus showed compassion toward the sick and suffering. The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick extends God’s grace of spiritual strength, peace, and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with facing a serious health challenge or advanced age.


Since the time of the Apostles, Christ has personally called forth some men and women to dedicate their lives ministering to the People of God in the service of the Church as a priest or religious sister or brother.
