Welcome!

Thank you for visiting our site. We are the linked parishes of St. Boniface Church in Williamsport and St. Lawrence in South Williamsport, PA. Please, surf these pages understanding that we are growing and they will be changing regularly.

Our Catholic communities are called by Baptism to increasingly imitate the servant leadership of our Savior, Jesus Christ. This journey of faith is guided by the Holy Spirit, the Bible, the examples of the saints, and our devotion to the Eucharist. We do all of this in union with Pope Francis.

It is our hope to live our faith with particular focus on reaching out to those who are struggling with faith, life and other daily challenges. This includes the local community and even with programs in Central America.

The end goal for all of us is, as Jesus said ... that we " might have life and have it more abundantly". (Jn 10:10)

Father Bill's Pastor's Cornor

As the days are shorter and snow keeps us shut in, it's easy to succumb to loneliness and dark thoughts.  Our world events don't mitigate that gloominess. So please, be careful that you schedule in time for quiet prayer that boosts your peacefulness.  I'm not suggesting offering more formal prayers.  Instead, try quiet moments in front of a candle with a holy picture or favorite cross.  We are inundated by words and noise.  Give yourself time for silence.  Spend quiet time with the one we say we love, JESUS.

Meditation

This is a favorite prayer of Pope Francis.  Pray that he and the bishops lead us thru this crisis and not get paralyzed. 

For the intercession of Mary - The Undoer of Knots. "Mother of Fair Love.  I look to you.  Take in you hands, the ribbon of my life and see the snarl of knots that keeps me bound to sin, anxiety and hopelessness.  I beg you, Mother, by your powerful intercession and long fingers of love and grace, undo the knots in my heart and in my life, free me to love as Christ loves."
