Diocesan Annual Campaign

The theme for the 2024 Diocesan Annual Campaign, Nourished by Faith, encourages us to live our faith more vibrantly; to be more visibly and recognizably Catholic Christians.

Pilgrimage to the Grotto of Lourdes

The annual Pilgrimage to the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, Emmitsburg, Md., is scheduled for Thursday, August 1, 2024. The day will include private/small group devotions, reflections at the Shrine, Confessions, Holy Mass and Eucharistic Adoration.


Festivals & Picnics

It’s summertime, and that means parish festivals! Enjoy food, games, raffles, live music and camaraderie at the many parish festivals taking place throughout the Diocese in the coming weeks. Check back often, as more festivals will be added when their information is received.


Support the Diocesan Camp at Kirchenwald

Gift with a purpose. Your contribution helps make the camp possible for many who couldn’t afford it, enabling various activities for all attendees. While campers are asked to pay a fee to attend camp and some counties will subsidize the cost of camp, the entire cost is often not paid. Donations are welcome to assist the diocese in providing this week-long experience.


Summer Picnic

The Black Catholic Apostolate invites all the faithful in our Diocese to a picnic on City Island, Harrisburg, on Sunday, August 25, 2024 from 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Meat and drinks will be provided. Those attending are asked to bring a favorite covered dish or dessert to share. Also, bring your favorite games to play.


Cemetery Flower Program

As a service for those who are unable to visit the graves of loved ones in Diocesan Cemeteries, a program is offered each spring for flowers to be placed at gravesites. Floral arrangements are placed for Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and for early autumn.


Upcoming Events

The Diocese has a number of great events, activities and programs planned in the coming months. Check out all our upcoming events and make your plans to join us.
