Elijah Cup Program
The Elijah Cup Program is sponsored by our Holy Name Society. It is a program of prayer to help increase vocations to the priesthood and religious life in the Church. You would receive the Elijah Cup at Mass, take it home, and offer prayers all week for vocations. A program book is provided. Sign up today.

Bring your lounge chairs and blankets, if you like.
Registering For Masses
For Masses during the weekdays, there is no need to register. Just sign in when you arrive. For weekend Masses, we are taking reservations so that we can accommodate all who want to attend that Mass. With proper social distancing, we are able to handle over a hundred people in the combined Church, Chapel and Upper Meeting Room before moving into the Hall. So please call the Church at (570-629-0593) if you are planning to attend one of the weekend Masses. If it becomes necessary, we will add an additional Sunday Mass.
