Welcome to Mary, Mother of the Church

“ Mary, Mother of the Church is located in the heart of historic Downtown Charleroi. It was established on Nov. 1, 1992 following the merger of three parishes: Sts. Cyril & Methodius, St. Jerome and Mother of Sorrows. The parish has thrived under the name and mantle of Mary, Mother of the Church.  Come and join us as we pray, petition, sing and dedicate ourselves to the mission of Jesus and gather around the Eucharistic Table of our Beloved Savior!” Fr. Jerry Mikonis
