Winter Weather

If you cannot make it to Holy Mass due to weather conditions, the obligation ceases. Please keep the day holy – perhaps by saying the rosary or other special prayers.  You may want to pray along with the Mass on TV. It is broadcast from St. John Gualbert Cathedral in Johnstown at 11 AM Sunday on WATM TV ABC 23.

Please be safe. May God bless you and your family.

Please Note:  With the beginning of a new decade, our parish is undertaking a project to collect e-mail addresses and/or cell phone numbers of all our members (and even friends of our parish) who may want to receive information from our parish via e-mail or text. 

We ask every individual who wants to be included on our list to fill out the Form on the Contact Page of this website. We are not collecting by family unit, but rather by individual person. Husbands, wives, children, each may have different e-mail addresses or cell numbers. Each person may subscribe. Friends of the parish may also want to be included.

You may provide both your e-mail and cell number, or just one of these as you wish. This is entirely voluntary. We are hoping it will become a fast, efficient and very economical way to keep in touch with all members of our parish family.

We will not ever sell your contact info, and you will have the opportunity to unsubscribe at any time. You may review our Privacy Policy at any time by clicking on the link in the footer of this website.     

We welcome our parishioners and all visitors to our web site. We hope you find helpful information here, and that you will come to visit us in person.

We have a beautiful church with friendly parishioners and a welcoming spirit. If you have any questions, please call our parish office phone at (814) 322-4789. May God bless you in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Virgin Appears to Saint John Vianney - Detail of Stained Glass Window at Saint John Vianney Church, Johnstown, PA


The patron saint of our parish is Saint John Vianney. He was a parish priest in the small and very remote village of Ars, France during the early 1800’s. St. John Vianney was a humble man with a deep devotion to our Blessed Lady. He was much beloved by his parishioners.
St. John Vianney became very famous as a confessor and spiritual director. He heard confessions of people from all over the world, often for 16 hours a day. His life was filled with works of charity and love, and today Saint John Vianney is known as the patron saint of all parish priests.
The stained glass windows in our church depict scenes from the life of Saint John Vianney. We have used details from our windows on this web site. Please join us and all in our diocese in praying for more vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
