Save the Date for Leave a Mark 2022!
On Sunday, November 6, the Most Reverend Joseph C. Bambera, Bishop of Scranton, will celebrate the annual Leave a Mark Mass which is celebrating its 7th anniversary in 2022. The idea for the Mass came after Pope Francis spoke to pilgrims at World Youth Day 2016 in Poland. “Dear young people, we didn’t come into this world to ‘vegetate,’ to take it easy, to make our lives a comfortable sofa to fall asleep on,” the Holy Father said in 2016. “No, we came for another reason: to leave a mark. It is very sad to pass through life without leaving a mark.”
For the past few years, hundreds of young people have gathered in the Cathedral of Saint Peter with Bishop Bambera to kickoff National Vocation Awareness Week in the Diocese of Scranton. Bishop Bambera is inviting the young church of the Diocese of Scranton to gather once again this year in the Cathedral of Saint Peter on Sunday, November 6, 2022, for a special Mass at 5:00PM. Rev. Jeffrey Tudgay, Pastor at the Cathedral of Saint Peter will be the homilist. A reception featuring live music and food truck will follow.
(Sunday) 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
