Welcome to Holy Martyrs Roman Catholic Church in Oreland, Pennsylvania – Founded 1949

” . . . one of the elders spoke up and said to me, “Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?”  I said to him, “My lord, you are the one who knows.” He said to me, “These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”                                 -Revelation 7:13-14
