Our pastor is Fr. John Murray, CSSR. Our assistant pastor is Fr. Jim Szobonya, CSSR. Additional retired priests reside at St. Clement’s Mission House, here on our property and named after St. Clement Hofbauer, the second founder of the congregation who brought the dream of the Redemptorists to America.
The Redemptorist priests of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (CSSR) have been serving the Ephrata community since 1914. Following the footsteps of their patron and founder, St. Alphonsus Liguori, the Redeptorists have chosen to “follow the example of Jesus Christ by preaching the Word of God to the poor.”
