Happy Easter From WHYF

The Flower of Carmel Hermitage is holding their spring fundraising banquet on Thursday May 2nd. The doors open at 6:00 PM. The event will be at Saint Ann Byzantine Catholic Church Social Hall, 5408 locust lane, Harrisburg, PA 17019. There's no charge for the event and buffet dinner. RSVP by Thursday April 18th, 2024 by: emailing or call 717- 372-3909.


Hermits are not monetarily supported by Holy Mother Church; they rely on the kindness and generosity of donations which may be offered at the fundraiser.


The guest speaker will be Fr. John Szada. Father Szada is a priest in our diocese. He attended Penn State University for his undergraduate degree and remains connected with the institution. Subsequently, he entered Mount Saint Mary's Seminary and was ordained in 1978, and Fr. Szada has now been a priest for 45 years. He pursued an interest in psychology after ordination, and received a PHD from Capella University in 2017. He was appointed the official exorcist of the diocese in 2011 and continues to function in that ministry, where he is receives numerous referrals and has performed a number of formal, solemn exorcism rights. Fr. Szada’s keen interest is in determining the cause of the affliction, mental illness, or spiritual attack, and completed his dissertation on the topic. Sister Mary Catherine Rose  Giacoble, is the host of the event. Use the link below to find out more about the Flower of Carmel Hermitage.
