  • Continuing Covid Season Cautions from the Bishop

    With Christmas quickly approaching, Bishop Bambera wishes to send out a reminder about the COVID-19 protocols that remain in place for parishes throughout the Diocese of Scranton. Christmas often brings many visitors to our parishes, so I encourage you to share these protocols in bulletins and through other communication methods you have available.

    While all of these protocols have been in place since August – the number of new, daily COVID-19 infections throughout our 11 counties continues to be high. That means we must all remain vigilant and not let down our guard. We must all use our best judgment to protect our own health and the health of our neighbors.


    · The Diocese of Scranton strongly recommends that all parishioners wear a mask while attending Mass, regardless of vaccination status. As Catholics, we have a responsibility to protect our friends and neighbors and mask wearing remains an important mitigation tool against community spread.


    · Parishes should post signs strongly recommending the use of face masks by all parishioners, especially for those individuals who may be visiting for Christmas or have not attended Mass in-person recently. Bulletin announcements and announcements prior to Mass are also ways that can be used to help communicate this message.


    · Anyone who is sick should stay home and participate in the celebration of Mass through Catholic Television or a parish livestream Mass. In addition, anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, headache, or muscle pain) should not attend Mass in-person

  • 2021-2023 SYNOD OF BISHOPS

    Let the Church hear your voice.

    Instructions included in bulletin for Dec. 5, 2021, pages 5-6.

    Paper copies of Synod Survey are in the rear of the church.


    We are providing a limited number of paper bulletins for those coming to church who do not have email.

    If you so receive an emailed bulletin, please do not take a paper copy from church. 

    If you do not receive the bulletin in your email, please notify the office stppp@yahoo.com or call 570-265-2113 so we can update our email lists.

    Thank you !


    Thanks to everyone who comes to church, for your consideration of others in our "distancing" arrangement, by using the alternate pews that are marked open (not closed with ribbon)..

    As we are welcoming more parishioners back to Mass, it seems that most who come early, stay at the end of the pew, on the aisles.

    We ask only that if you see people coming in later who are searching for an open pew, would you consider possibly moving to the center of your pew, to allow an  opening at the end of it for the newcomer(s)?.

    We would appreciate your kind consideration in this regard and understand that it depends on the number already seated there.
