We are certainly experiencing a shortage of priests in the Diocese of Harrisburg and across the country. Please continue to pray for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and religious life. On that note, however, we often receive calls here at St. Joan of Arc, from the Diocese and priests within the Diocese of Harrisburg to provide coverage at other parishes. In these instances, I usually go myself as opposed to making efforts to change the schedule of priests here at the parish. So if you don't see me some weekends at Mass, and I'm not on vacation or retreat, odds are good that I am covering elsewhere. Thank you for your understanding and please continue to pray for priests!
