Our congregation has accepted the appointment by the Diocese of Harrisburg to begin pastoral ministry of St. Joseph the Worker Parish, Bonneauville, PA. Installation of the Pastor, Fr. Augusty Thankachan, M.SS.CC. took place on June 26, 2011. Many St. Joseph parishioners and friends from the nearby parish of St. Mary's of Fairfield attended. Our congregation has been working in the diocese of Harrisburg since 1993 when we assumed pastoral direction of St. Mary's in Fairfield and St. Rita's in Blue Ridge Summit.
