The Light is On For You - Reconciliation

Every Monday evening during Lent (Feb. 19th, 26th; March 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th), each parish throughout the Diocese of Scranton will have their “lights on” from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. for confession so that Catholics can come to or return to this incredible source of God’s grace, mercy and healing.

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

First Sunday of Lent

The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert,
and he remained in the desert for forty days,
tempted by Satan.
He was among wild beasts,
and the angels ministered to him. - Mark 1:12-13
