Welcome to Saint John Paul II Catholic Church! We are a missionary people who desire to live the fullness of God’s plan for our lives and families. In our need for salvation, we witness to the world -- through our ordinary lives -- that we have encountered Christ in Person, in Scripture, and in Sacrament.

We strive to make faith relevant to our daily lives through the recognition that God has come to us through His Son, Jesus Christ! We believe He dwells among among us: in our hearts, our homes, and our community of believers. You will find us in many ordinary places, and each Sunday, gathered at the extraordinary altar for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass at 9:30 am. Come and see what is happening in Harrisburg!
