Thank You For Visiting Our Website
We hope this site will help you to learn more about our faith community.
St. Marys Roman Catholic Parish serves the community and surrounding areas of Hamburg, Pennsylvania, a rural town situated on the banks of the Schuylkill River in the beautiful Blue Mountain chain.
The beginning of the new millennium brought with it the dedication of our new church, a modern, handicap-accessible building situated on a hilltop just west of town. The original church, dedicated by St. John Neumann in 1854, was no longer adequate for our growing faith community. Since the construction of the new church in 2000, the parish has been blessed with the ongoing development of our parish campus situated on almost 30 acres of picturesque land.
If you are vacationing or just visiting the area, please feel welcome at St. Marys. We hope you find your electronic visit informative. May the Lord bless you and keep you.
Sincerely yours in Christ,

Children At Masschildren In Mass Are Gifts Not Distractions
But if a young child does become disruptive, which is natural, please be respectful of other parishioners and remove the child from church and feel free to return once it is appropriate. Please do not let young children wander from the pew or run up and down aisles or through the Mary chapel alcove. Also, if late for Mass, please do not proceed to the front of the church but instead occupy a pew closer to the rear. Consideration of others and reverence help to maintain a prayerful atmosphere for all.

Weekend Homilist And Retreat
Father Benedict Kiely, who has twice been a guest homilist here at St. Mary, is the founder of Nasarean.org, a charity based in Stowe, Vermont, whose purpose is to bring attention and assistance to persecuted Christians around the world. Fr. Ben is incardinated in the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham in England. He was born in London and ordained in Canterbury, and in the summer of 2014 perceived a call to devote his entire priestly ministry to the plight of the persecuted. Father Kiely will be our guest homilist again this weekend Sunday, October 23. He will pose the question What is a Martyr? He will also lead a mini retreat each of the following nights, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, October 24, 25, and 26, from 7:00 to 8:00 PM. His topic will be Faith, which is based on a beautiful treatise by Pope Emeritus Benedict called Lumen Fidei .
Are You Able To Host A Ukrainian Family
When hearing reports of the war in Ukraine, and the millions of Ukrainians that have been forced to flee their homeland, many have asked what they can do to help. Over 80,000 Ukrainians have already arrived to Canada through a special visa program created by Immigration Canada. An additional 500,000 have applied to the program and are expected to arrive in the coming months. Many are arriving to Toronto and are without family here in Canada to help them. Among those will be some who are vulnerable to human trafficking, particularly seniors, single women, and women with children. There is an immediate need for families to host for a period of between one and six months some of those who have arrived. If you would like to learn more about hosting a Ukrainian family, please go to Archdiocese of Toronto Ukrainian Crisis and register for a virtual information session.
