Regarding information you may need related to the passing into eternal life of our dear pastor and friend, Father Gary:
Please visit the links below and/or use the search box on the home page as a resource.
Check back to this website periodically.
New information may be added or follow our church Facebook page.
We will make every effort to update both sources as we recognize not everyone uses Facebook.
We hope to create a memorial page in the future and will post at a time that is appropriate.
Most especially, please, we ask you remember in your prayers Father Gary and as he would request, prayers for his family, his friends, and also for our deeply grieving parish families of both churches he served: St. Michael, Pittston and St. Nicholas, Swoyersville, during this difficult time.
If you plan to attend the services please be respectful of the sacred space within our churches. As Catholics we believe in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. The eternal light suspended in front of the icon screen is a reminder to all that the Blessed Sacrament, our Lord, is present in the tabernacle.
May God Grant Father Gary, Blessed and Eternal Memory.
