Featured Programs

Diocesan Annual Campaign

The theme for the 2023 Diocesan Annual Campaign, Together in Faith, Together in the Eucharist, encourages us to demonstrate our love of God when we reach out in love and mercy to those in need.


National Eucharistic Revival

The National Eucharistic Revival officially begins on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 19, 2022. The Revival is a three-year initiative sponsored by the Bishops of the United States intended to form, heal, convert, and unite the People of God through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist.


Chrism Mass

Bishop Ronald Gainer will celebrate the annual Chrism Mass for the Diocese of Harrisburg at 4 PM on Monday, April 3, in the Cathedral Parish of Saint Patrick, Harrisburg. The Chrism Mass, celebrated on Monday of Holy Week, offers the faithful a solemn occasion to witness the blessing of the oils and the consecration of the Sacred Chrism that will be used in the celebration of the sacraments throughout the coming year.

Lent is the forty day period before Easter, excluding Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday. During Lent, we are asked to devote ourselves to seeking the Lord in prayer and reading Scripture, to service by giving alms, and to sacrifice through fasting.
