Dear friend and fellow disciple of the Lord:

Welcome to the web site of Holy Angels Catholic Church. Should you visit our parish, we would like to meet you in person. We believe that we are a dynamic, faith-filled parish.

Our church building is a majestic Gothic structure with air conditioning, traditional furnishings and an authentic pipe organ. Our parish grade school, Holy Angels School, was founded in 1858 and is a first-rate Catholic school. Also within our parish boundaries is Lehman Catholic High School, which began as our parish high school but is now a consolidated high school with students from a number of local parishes. It excels academically and is proud of the high percentage of students who go on to college.

As a parish family, we try to live faithfully the teachings of Jesus Christ as found in the Bible and in the teachings of the Catholic Church. We are a pilgrim people on our way to the "new and eternal Jerusalem." Come, join us on the way!

 

Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Frank Amberger
Pastor, Holy Angels Church

Students going into grades 1 – 6 next fall are invited to participate in the Children’s Program, Monday through Friday from 9:00 to 2:30 p.m. each day for catechesis, games, Mass, songs, Reconciliation, and a chance to build a stronger relationship with Christ. Teens entering grades 7 - 12 are invited to come to a Teen Program each evening, Sunday through Thursday from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The mission is led by a team of young adults who are on fire for our faith and share that faith with the whole parish throughout their time with us for TOTUS TUUS.

ANGEL STATUE

We are searching for the angel statue that was a pair with the above one. Previously, they were located above the high altar, one on each side. When things were changed, in and around 1985, there were items that were sold. We believe the lost angel was one of those items. If you have any information on this angel statue, call the Parish Office at 498-2307.
