Foreign Mission Projects

As the pandemic forced churches to close and all prayer and spirituality meetings to cease gathering, St. Benedict Church took assertive action and redesigned our website to include Mass, special devotions such as the Divine Mercy Chaplet, the Rosary, the Stations of the Cross and many other links to enable the faithful to strengthen their prayer life and draw themselves closer to Christ during this difficult time.

The success of our website opened our spiritual programs to the world. We have been contacted by Christians in Africa, Pakistan, Uganda, Malawi, India, and many other parts of the world. Among the requests we receive are requests for rosaries, Bibles, and other prayer aids as well as financial support for children’s clothing, school supplies, and food.

If you would like to participate with a donation for these projects, please contact Deacon Michael at 814-288-3036 or or look for the links on each project’s page.
