I was born in Shamokin in 1938 and I want to support the church via mass cards and donations. I will be sending a donation of $25 in honor of Adolf Jasper who recently passed away and is (was) a member of the church.
I am doing ancestry research and my maiden name was Jackiewicz and it had also been spelled Jackewicz I believe my great uncle Stanley Jackewicz who died in 1963 belonged to your parish. How can I obtain information? There is a chance that the Tomaszewski family is also connected.
thank you in Advance for your time and consideration in this matter. Mary Muller

I just had the priviledge of touring the church with my son and daughter and my nephew from CA. I was married in St. Ed's in 1968. My family history in St. Ed's goes back to the late 1800's under the names Foley and Buckley. The church looks beautiful and I was very proud to tell it's history.
Wish I could physically visit to refresh the memory of my old times at St Edwards Church. My husband and I were married there by Father Lavelle as wa my grandmother in the early 1900's. The church holds many fond memories of my time singing in the Latin Choir for all of my school years. I can still sing the Latin songa.

Looking for records of marriage of my grandparents: Francis Patrick McCluskey and Mary Jane Cooper married at St. Edwards Catholic Church in Shamokin, PA in December of 1890. Understand that St. Edwards burned in 1972. Wondered if any records exist in the parish...Also Mary Jane Cooper had several brothers and sisters born in Shamokin....any way to look up information about their births?
I was talking to Fr. Martin the other day and told him about the link to finding out how strong the earthquake was by zip code, so I'd appreciate it if you could show him the above link. Thank you, Tom
Hello, I am the great grandson of one Andrew Bardar (Barder) one of the 34 men who help found the Assumption BVM in Shamokin back in 1891. I have a copy of the 100th Anniversary book in which he is listed. The Assumption BVM was a Slovak Church serving 94 Slovak families in the town. He and his wife Barbara Barder are both buired in St. Mary's Cemetary. My wfe and I are planning on visiting Shamokin in mid August to see his grave, former home, and try and get some of his records. I am now the oldest male from his line and am trying to put his story together for my grandchildren. He did a great work for God!
Father Martin my prayers for a quick recovery for father michael
I would like to thank Father Martin Kobos for the beautiful memorial mass he presided over for my cousin, Ann Tiley. Fr. gave a touching homily and although he didn't know Ann, he reminded us how each of our lives, no matter how quiet, can make a difference. I think the parishoners of Mother Cabrini are blessed to have Fr. Martin as a pastor.
