  • ALERT: Pennsylvania Catholic Tribune is not authorized here

    Reverend and dear Father,

    Dear Deacon,

    Dear Parish Life Coordinator,

    Dear Staff Member,


    In recent days, the Diocese of Scranton has received several questions regarding a publication that some parishioners are receiving at their homes called the “Pennsylvania Catholic Tribune.”


    Please know this publication and its accompanying websites are neither endorsed by, nor affiliated with the Diocese of Scranton or the Catholic Church. With Election Day approaching, it appears as if similar publications are appearing in other swing-states including Arizona and Michigan.


    Attached to this email, you will find a statement on this issue, that you are welcome to use if you are to receive any questions. This statement will also be posted on the Diocese of Scranton website and social media platforms.


    Thank you for your attention to this matter.



    Faithfully yours in Christ,

    Joseph C. Bambera

    Most Reverend Joseph C. Bambera, D.D., J.C.L.

    Bishop of Scranton

  • Synod Report Now Available

    For six months, people throughout our diocese responded to Pope Francis’ call to the Synod on Synodality by sharing their hopes, concerns and dreams for the Catholic Church. Some participated at listening sessions, and many others through an online survey. Through this participation, many themes began to emerge.

    Our Diocesan Synthesis Report representing these themes has been submitted to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, and is also available for general review. To learn more and to review the synthesis report, please visit the Synod on Synodality page on our diocesan website, www.dioceseofscranton.org.
