Welcome to mySaintMiriam.org the online home of Saint Miriam Parish. We are a Franciscan, Old Catholic Parish Community, with a strong emphasis on worship, community, a life of prayer, and where we honor the sacraments, as we proclaim the message of Christ in word and deed! We provide a strong Catholic Liturgy, an inclusive Catholic education, and a vibrant welcome to everyone without reservation. Saint Miriam is located in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, adjacent to Plymouth Meeting. We are just minutes from Routes 476, 309, and 202 and just a mile from the Plymouth Meeting Mall. We are designated as a pro cathedral as our diocesan bishop is in residence here and serves as our pastor.
Here, in addition to a warm welcome by a diverse group of people who have made this parish their home, you will find an atmosphere of quiet reflection on the presence of God, great beauty in the visual aspects of the changing liturgical seasons, and worship music that will inspire and transform you! We're committed to passionate and engaging worship, relevant teaching, and the formation of real community. Feel free to look around, ask questions, and visit us in person where you will experience and become God’s friends… together with us! We know that from the moment you walk through our doors you will feel at home. In our community, you will discover a safe space to explore your deepest longings for God with warm people to support you, just as you are! It matters not to us where you come: from more Orthodox Catholic Churches, any of the varied Protestant denominations, or those from an Eastern Tradition, at Saint Miriam you are welcome!
Saint Miriam is a great way to explore what God has in store for you and to discover the unique ways an inclusive community of faith can bring hope, healing, and stability as you uncover new and wonderful ways to experience the love of God you’d never find if you were alone.
