150th Anniversary of the Diocese of Scranton

December 3, 2017 – November 25, 2018 

To commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the Founding of the Diocese of Scranton on March 3rd, 1868, a year-long series of special liturgies, celebrations and events will begin on the First Sunday of Advent (December 3rd, 2017) and conclude the following year on the Feast of Christ the King (November 25th, 2018).    

The primary commemoration of our Sesquicentennial Year will be marked with a major liturgical celebration in Scranton at the Cathedral of St. Peter and also at every parish throughout the Diocese on Sunday, March 4th, 2018.    

As this calendar attests, events have been scheduled throughout the eleven counties of the Diocese to highlight various churches, institutions and sites of historical significance.  There are, of course, additional diocesan calendar events as well as other celebrations in your parishes which are not reflected here. Thank you for adding to the joy of discovering anew the graced history that is ours!

This Week's Bulletin

Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

He summoned the crowd with his disciples and said to them,
"Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself,
take up his cross, and follow me. 
For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it,
but whoever loses his life for my sake
and that of the gospel will save it." - Mark 8: 34-35
