The first ever St. Mary & St. Michael Nativity Festival is being offered as a gift to the parish communities including all in the surrounding community area. This festival encourages attendees to reflect on the humble birth and life of Jesus Christ, our Savior, and is a two day, self-guided, free public event. It will feature magnificently crafted nativity sets, including the historic nativity sets from both parishes. Loaned by parishioners and friends, these works reflect the culture and perspective of artists around the world. This amazing event for the whole family includes a free Christmas Concert by the Altoona Community Band.
Fr. Alan will bless all of the Nativity scenes that are on display.
If you would like to have your nativity scene(s) included in the festival or help set-up, serve as a greeter, donate cookies, take down and help decorate the churches afterwards. Please let us know! Families are encouraged to get involved. Great opportunity for service hours too! To volunteer or for questions contact St. Michael parish office 814-695-0912 or 814-931-1398.

Extending a rich parish heritage built upon the pioneering traditions of the first settlers of the Southern Allegheny mountains, St. Michael the Archangel Parish embraces as its mission the use of all available resources, both spiritual and temporal, to minister to the needs of the people of Hollidaysburg and its surrounding areas.
We do this in a fashion -which reflects the teachings and example, of Jesus Christ while promoting a tradition of liturgical excellence, strong support for Catholic education in all its varieties, and enlightened social outreach to the community at large, in union with both the Diocesan and Universal Church.
Public Masses resumed Saturday, June 13th. For those who are unable to attend Mass in person, we encourage you to watch and participate in the recorded weekend Mass.
Every weekday and weekend you can listen to the readings/gospel and Fr. Alan's Homily. Past recordings are also available.
Our weekly bulletin is available for you to view.
We have compiled a list of resources and websites for all ages and groups no matter where you are on your faith journey.
Religious Education is vital in your child's education and we are here to help parents develop their child's personal relationship with Christ and to teach Church doctrine.
