Catholics Invited to Celebrate Unity and Fun at Faith Day


The Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown Faith Day is returning on June 25 at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park in Tipton.

Come early and spend the day catching up with fellow Catholics from throughout the eight-county diocese. Celebrate our unity as a Diocesan Church in a fun and relaxing environment. 

Enjoy the rides and water park. Faith Day guests can save on all-day fun passes purchased at the part that day.

A highlight of the day will be Mass celebrated at 4:30 p.m. on the park stage celebrated by Bishop Mark. The liturgy fulfills the Sunday obligation. 

After Mass, engage in more fellowship and great food with a diocesan picnic in Pavilion 2. Guests may bring their own picnic food, or they may pre-order a DelGrosso’s picnic supper through any parish or online at Adult meals are $10; vegetarian meals are $9, children’s meals are $8. Reservations for the DelGrosso dinners are required by June 17.
