Filled with faith, hope and charity, the faithful of Ascension and Saint Katharine Drexel parishes are united as disciples of Jesus Christ. With Christ and under the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to continue to celebrate the faith and traditions of the Catholic Church. We seek to inspire others to build a closer relationship with God by reaching out in love through worship, prayer, fellowship, and sharing the Gospel.

 We now have Online Giving.

The Diocese of Scranton is strongly recommending that all parishioners wear a mask while attending Mass – regardless of vaccination status.  As Catholics, we have a responsibility to protect our friends and neighbors and mask wearing remains an important mitigation tool against community spread.  In order to safeguard our community, all Priests, Deacons, Extraordinary Ministers, and Altar Servers must wear masks during the distribution of Holy Communion.

Anyone who is sick should stay home and participate in the celebration of Mass through Catholic Television or a parish livestream Mass.  In addition, anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms (fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, headache or muscle pain) should not attend Mass in-person.

Please use hand sanitizer upon entering the church. The Sign of Peace is to be celebrated without physical contact between non-family members. Distribution of the Precious Blood remains suspended at this time.
