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

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Father Peter Damian
We are planning a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land in June of 2017 if there is sufficient interest. We are hoping for at least 40 people to join us to keep the costs down. The cost is currently estimated at about $3,500.00 – $4,000.00 per person and will be all inclusive.
Final cost will be determined by airfare and choice of lodging accomodations.
If you are interested please call the Rectory before the end of September to reserve your place 215-884-8575

Forms for this purpose may be found in the pews and at the Church entrances. Considerations and instructions are on the cards. Completed cards may be placed in the collection at Mass or in the votive candle offering boxes in the Church, or may be forwarded to the Rectory.
