Pastor's Corner        Weekly Bulletin 

Welcome!

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.

Our Parish Mission
Fr. Steve Delacy, Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will present a Visitation BVM Mission September 22-24 on "A Journey with the Archangels: Message, Healing, and Spiritual Warfare". 

St. John Neumann, the 4th bishop of Philadelphia, instituted the 40 Hours Devotion as a special, annual time of parish Eucharistic devotion—long before the advent of perpetual adoration in parishes.  Because we have 24/7 perpetual Eucharistic adoration here, the topic was discussed last year by the parish council & the conclusion was that we should move away from 40 Hours & into an annual Parish Mission, which will occur over Sunday, Monday, & Tuesday nights from 7-8 pm. in the Upper Church.  It will be led by Fr. Steve DeLacy, the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  Please join us for an hour each night, which will include on Monday night an opportunity to go to confession—with multiple priests here to assist.

The topics for each night:  "A Journey with the Archangels:  Message, Healing, and Spiritual Warfare".

The collection envelope marked 40 Hours can be used for our Parish Mission collection.
