JOHN PAUL II MANOR IS GRATEFULLY ACCEPTING PAYPAL DONATIONS
Society as a whole must respect, defend and promote the dignity of every human person, at every moment and in every condition of that person's life.
SAINT JOHN PAUL II
Life is a precious gift from God, and the dignity of each person is our highest concern and priority. Knowing that transition is always challenging we strive to provide a family environment at our John Paul II Manor. The Sisters and lay staff approach each person with respect, kindness and compassion. Life is shared together with common meals, social interaction and celebrations. If there is anything I can do for you, or if you have any questions, please call (814-886-7961) or email me at email@example.com or fill the contact form below. God Bless You!

NEW GARDEN WALK INSTALLED AT JOHN PAUL II MANOR
On October 15, 2023, our new garden walk at John Paul II Manor was blessed and dedicated by Fr. Leo Arnone, joined by our Manor Chaplain, Msgr. Bernard Przybocki. A reception followed. Thank you to all who so generously donated to this cause. Thank you to Roger Harrington and his crew at Harrington Quality Construction, who told us that they were not only installing sidewalks marked by the rosary, but they were praying it as well. We are also grateful to Fr. Bernard White who donated a beautiful statue of the Agony of the Garden for the walkway. The inspiration came from resident Philip Arnone, father of Fr. Leo Arnone, pastor of Cresson parishes, thus the project was dedicated in honor of him and his beloved late wife Nancy. Our residents can now safely walk without danger of traffic on a walkway that affords a peaceful place of prayer and solitude.
