As a parish founded by St. John Neumann and dedicated to the Holy Trinity, we worship the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the celebration of the Liturgy. Through Word and Sacrament, we are then given the strength to go forth to live out our faith in our daily lives, bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to all we encounter.

HOLY NAME SOCIETY 2017 MAN OF THE YEAR
The Annual Holy Name Society Father – Son Communion-Breakfast was held on Sunday, February 12, 2017. Following the 8:00AM Mass, celebrated by our pastor Father Steven Kelley, the fathers and their sons gathered in the Parish Center. They were treated to a delicious “family style” breakfast prepared by ladies of the Altar Rosary Society.
Andrew Yeager was introduced and inducted into the Society by Father Kelley who administered the Holy Name Pledge. President Mark Grab then announced the 2017 Man of the Year, Mike Leibhart, who was unable to attend. Later his award was presented by Father Kelley and Mark Grab in the rectory. Mike toils quietly almost on a daily basis around the parish making repairs, constructing shelving and building cabinets. He is a retired Industrial Arts Teacher, a master carpenter, an excellent wood worker, gunsmith and one who loves big game hunting in Africa. Mike and his wife Barbara volunteer making fastnachts as well. He is most deserving of this honor for the untold hours he unselfishly gives to the parish
A highlight of the morning was the wildlife presentation given by Ben Grab. He is a great ambassador for the North Museum in Lancaster. Ben shared a number of “critters” with his young audience that was held spellbound. He certainly could give Channel 8’s Jack Hubley a run for his money. Ben’s presentation was outstanding!
All men of our parish, 9th grade and older, are invited to be a part of our Holy Name Society. We urge you to join soon and help us support our church by volunteering in any of the following activities the Holy Name Men:

The HNS meets the second Sunday of each month, following the 8:00AM Mass in the rectory basement. Come and join us at our next meeting.
