Hello! I am researching my family tree. I am trying to get birth and death dates. My grandparents are buried in st. Edwards cemented and I was baptism end on jan.7, 1962 at St. Edwards is there a site were I could find information? I am going to Ireland with my Catholic Church to sing and am trying to find my great grandfathers family that stayed in Ireland.

Former St Edwards student

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.

Memorial site for Fr. Paul

Best of luck to Mother Cabrini. I am quite familiar with the Church itself Prior to the fire that is. I was an altar boy there in the late 40s and early 50s. I served Dr Hassett in the rectory for the last years of his life. I havent been physically able to return to Shamokin since the early 90s.

Rest in peace Fr. Paul you will always be remembered and loved.

One of my relatives sent me a copy of the website. It was very pleasant to see the inside of the church of my childhood - now renamed from St. Edward to Mother Cabrini. I was a student in St. Ed's Elementary School and graduated from Our Lady of Lourdes Highschool in 1962 (I don't have a copy with me but if my memory is correct, I managed to put OLOL on the back cover of a book that my publisher (Tate Publishing)released for me in January 2010(A Dream of my Father; My Journey through the Gospels with Jesus). I was married in St. Ed's Church in December of 1962. I have a lot of History with Mother Cabrini (St. Ed's Parish). I'm very fortunate now to work at Catholic University in Washington, DC and I am right next door to the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. However, I haven't forgotten my roots or the tradegy of our original church building burning down. That was painful. I would like to come up for a visit sometime while I'm still "walking the earth" and see the renovations for myself. I will be sure to stop by if I do. I work closely with the wonderful Franciscans that are located in our Campus Ministry Office at CUA and at one time we had a Franciscan priest there that I believe served at St. Edwards some years ago.
