Saint Joseph Melkite Greek-Catholic Church, Scranton, PA, is a local parish of the Melkite Eparchy of Newton.
Founded by Lebanese immigrants in the late 1890s, we are a faith community that has withstood many trials and tribulations. Today we continue to witness to the Gospel of Our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania: concentrated in the Lackawanna Valley. Our faithful parishioners and friends hail from Albany to Philadelphia and areas surrounding.
Patriarchate of Antioch. Catholic but not Roman, Byzantine in Tradition, brothers and sisters of the Orthodox East.

Please note New time for Forgiveness Vespers Sunday Feb 11. See Fasting and various excerpts published in our bulletin on the devotions page & in the weekly bulletin page.
The Scranton community at large looks forward to our St. Joseph Breakfast each year, especially the fragrant St Joseph Bread. Fasting is different for all our patrons, therefore we have permission to serve meat, eggs and other items on that Sunday during Lent. The Women’s Society is sponsoring their annual St. Joseph Breakfast on Sunday March 17 in the hall. More information to follow
