Easter Blessings! On behalf of all of our parish staff, I wish all of you a truly happy Easter Day and Easter Season as we celebrate our Lord’s victory over death. May all of us feel the joy of that triumph as we make our journey to life through death.


Congratulations! We congratulate Bridget Gindhart, Jacob Gindhart and Cecelia Leskowicz of our parish who were chosen by Bishop Bartchak to be confirmed by him at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Altoona this Wednesday, April 3.


Annual Catholic Appeal: The Annual Catholic Appeal is a vital part of the Catholic Church’s mission in Central Pennsylvania. Through it we allow Catholic Charities, The Fulton County Catholic Mission, Family Life, Vocations, Religious Education, and Lay Ecclesial Ministry, and many others to bring the Good News that is Jesus Christ to all who turn to them.  If you have not made a gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal, please pick up a spare envelope in the Gathering Space. You may return it to the parish office, place it in next week’s offertory, or mail it to OLV.

To date 368 households have pledged $123,057 towards our goal of $133,917. Thank you for your generous support!   


First Holy Communion Retreat: Our First Holy Communion Class, along with their parents, will be making a retreat this Saturday, April 6th. The retreat will go from 9:00am til noon. Please come to the Gardiner Social for the beginning of the retreat.


Divine Mercy Sunday is April 7th. We will pray the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy in the church next Sunday at 2:30pm.
