Pastor's Corner        Weekly Bulletin 



A warm welcome to Visitation BVM Parish and our Parish Website!  We are a Roman Catholic Parish of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, founded in 1954.  Our address is 196 North Trooper Road, Norristown, PA 19403-2600.  We are located in Montgomery County about 5 miles from Valley Forge National Historical Park.  You can access driving directions and our Mass Schedule from links below.

If you are new to the Valley Forge/Norristown Area, please consider making Visitation your parish home.  We offer a wealth of parish organizations and activities for a variety of interests.   

For ministry to our children, we offer a wonderful pre-K through 8th grade parish school with a very fine Home and School Association.  We also have an active Catholic Youth Organization and a High School Youth Ministry.   

If you are interested in learning about the Catholic Faith, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) meets on a weekly basis.  All are welcome; including long time Catholics looking for a refresher course in the faith.
