The Diocese of Scranton is really large geographically and it’s not always easy to get to Scranton from our area with how far away we are. To be able to have the Bishop come to us is a special experience.

It made it more real for me. Just to be here in the presence of God and the presence of Christ and my fellow parishioners and the Mystical Body, it was just a heartwarming experience.
