About Us

"Our Parish is the first in this country to be dedicated to St. Germaine. Without a doubt, her choice for us was Providential." - Father John Hugo, Founding Pastor

"It was hardly an auspicious beginning. A small congregation of Catholics, plucked from St. Anne's Church in Castle Shannon, St. Valentine's Church in Bethel Park and St. Gabriel's Church in Whitehall, met together for the first time on June 15, 1957, to form a new parish of 550 families." - Father Thomas J. Kram

"We realize that God calls all people to form God's body on earth. We recognize the many gifts and talents of our congregation and we share in the financial generosity of the many who support our structures and our ministries. And we give thanks for the many different and unique people who form our parish." - Father Nick Pesanka
