Dear Parishioners and Friends of our Cathedral Parish:
Bishop Mark has directed that we will not have any Masses or Stations of the Cross or Confirmations at the Cathedral until further notice. All public worship events across the Altoona-Johnstown Diocese are suspended well into May due to COVID-19 concerns. The noontime Mass on St Patrick’s Day was our last public Mass at the Cathedral. Father Chuck and I assumed that the 11 AM Sunday Mass would originate from our St John Gualbert Cathedral, however, these Masses are being taped weekly in Altoona. As stated in the Tribune-Democrat, Bishop Mark will preside.
Please know that the Cathedral is open for private prayer:
- 8 AM until 3 PM on weekdays
- 8 AM until 6 PM on Saturday and Sunday
Please observe social distancing during your Cathedral visits.
If you would like to schedule a private confession or if you have any questions, please contact our parish office at 814.536.0117. Thank you.
Mary, Health of the Sick, Protect All.
from Father Jim Crookston
