A Welcome from Father Eric Dinga
Greetings in the Lord! My name is Father Eric Dinga and I am the Pastor of Christ, Prince of Peace in Ford City and St. Lawrence in Cadogan, Partner Parishes of the Diocese of Greensburg. On behalf of our parishioners, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to anyone who might feel drawn to be a part of our community of faith. Our goal is to provide a joy-filled, welcoming, and caring environment for all who join us to celebrate our faith and the great mystery of God’s love for us, most especially in the Sunday Eucharist. As members of this faith community, we strive to use our gifts and talents to build up the Body of Christ among us in this corner of God’s kingdom. We look forward to having you join us in this effort. May God bless you and those you love!

As a community of faith, we have a responsibility to ourselves and one another to enter into the process of ongoing formation. This process is a lifelong journey, leading us into a closer more intimate relationship with Jesus. Our children are fully welcomed into this process.
Homeschooling is still an option, but parents must set up an Individual Educational Plan including meeting with the coordinator to access progress.
The EDGE program provides for the formational needs of Sixth Grade through Eighth Grade students of the region (CPOP & St. Lawrence) using a youth ministry model.
LIFETEEN is an instructional program using a youth ministry model for the high school students in our region (CPOP & St. Lawrence).

Young Adult Ministry
Sponsored by our local parishes our young adult ministry is for those aged 21-45. All are welcome–married, with or without children or single. Kids are welcome at some events. We hope to help young adults grow in their faith, enjoy fellowship, build community and help them stay connected to their parish or introduce newcomers to our Catholic faith. Some examples of activities include Eucharistic Adoration, Scriptural/topical study programs, bowling, movie nights etc. Please contact Katie Tylinski at [email protected] to add your e-mail address to our Young Adult e-mail distribution list.
