Welcome to St Paul's Parish

A Parish of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania

St. Paul’s Parish is a faith community located in Scranton PA since 1887.  Our parish family embraces people of every age, race, culture and social background.  Singles, families, old and young - all are welcome to share our faith in God and to serve one another in the spirit of the Gospel.

Dear Parishioner,

As you may be aware, today the statewide Grand Jury released its findings after investigating child sexual abuse within six of the eight Dioceses in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

However painful, the report underscores the importance of the child safety policies and procedures that we have put in place, and we will continue our commitment to providing a safe environment for all of our children and youth here at the Diocese of Scranton.

Today Bishop Bambera shared a video address with the faithful of our church, and released a statement to the local media. I encourage you to review these materials via the link noted below and also on our website. You may also share them with others, if you choose to do so. I hope these materials will answer your questions about the report. However, I welcome you to reach out to me should you have any further questions. I would be happy to speak with you at your convenience.

I recognize that this is a difficult time, but we are working hard to bring peace to our people and to restore their trust in the Church. Thank you for your continued support of the Diocese of Scranton. 

Sincerely yours,

Reverend Monsignor Neil J Van Loon
