Although I can't be there with you Mom, you will always be here in my heart. God took two of my angels to pave the way for me to join both of you one day. Rest in peace, I love you
I believe I attended school here in 1958 1959
I'm just trying to trace my history and the statue outside your church brought back some memory I now live in North East Pa which is outside of Erie and belong to Our Lady of Mercy Parish
We miss our beautiful Mass service at Mother Cabrini more than one could imagine. I'm sure many others feel the same. Our Community is a strong group of Parishners , we will be back within our Mother Cabrini Church soon.
Until we can enter again we need prayers storming the heavens for the Grace of God allowing this to be a reality.
We are ready, waiting on his word.
Thank you Fr. Martin and Fr. Steve. It heartwarming and beautiful to see the Masses, Stations of the Cross and Services and feel the warmth from virtually being in Mother Cabrini Church. Thank you and God bless you.
Your church is very lovely and I hope son to be a part of it as I¿m studying to become catholic and am moving into town in July
Just wanted to say hello and see how your are doing. Hope all is well with you.
I am a graduate of St. Edward's High School. I am proud to say the call to religious life was nurtured at St. Edward's Parish. I carry with me many fond memories.
I found your history on line and, I am intrested if you mighr have pictures of the ols St. Edwards church?
I am from Philadelphia,Pa and, my Parrish church was St.Edward the Confessor in Philadelphia,Pa our parrish was closed in 1993 and, we now have a face book page for our former studenta and,anyone who belonged to the parrish.
I am courious if the two churches had any simularites.
Thank you for any help with pictures.
Our school was taught by the Sisters of the Holy Child Jesus.SHCJ
So glad to have discovered your website. I am doing some family genealogy research and wondered if you might have baptism and marriage certificates on file from churches in your area that have closed. My grandparents lived in Ranshaw and attended St. Anthony's RC church there. Thank you
Former resident, Shamokin, PA, 1939-1946. Historically proud St. Edwards was 1st church electrically lighted
Hello, It was wonderful to find this church online. My family attended when it was St. Edwards, I still have older relatives in the Shamokin area. I think in the early days my name was spelled Hudak, my grandfather was Michael as well. He had 3 sisters Mary, Pauline and Julia. His dad died was he was young and his mother remarried Stanley Novinksi. The Novinski's I believe are still in the area, the last time I visited the area was for the funeral of my step great grandfather Stanley. Thank you so much for allowing me to see my old parish. Best Regards Michael Hudock

Re: celebration for Miranda Dobson on 1/8/14.
Fr. Martin and Mr. Bobber; Many thanks for the most beautiful service that a son could have ever asked for. Fr. Martin, many in attendance spoke to me about the incredible way that you perfectly captured the essence of my mother after your service. Just today I spoke with someone who recalls sitting on her swing years ago and seeing exactly what you described. I will be forever grateful for your kind words and your blessings.
I'm trying to find information on my relatives, I believe they were members at St. Stanislaus. I am located south of Detroit, Michigan. It is my understanding that the church is closed. My great-great grandfather was Stanislaus Wilczewski, his wife's name was Johanna. They may have went by the surname of Wilk or Wilkie. They were married on May 18th 1886. They had five or six children and some them were born in Pennsylvania and some in Detroit, Michigan. Any information you could find would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
