Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Tiny seeds fall to the ground and bring forth beautiful flowers upon the earth…..
What seems to have passed away, has in truth given an entrance to new life.

The early history of our Catholic community is deeply rooted to a parcel in Elliottsville. On this site, early Catholics worshipped and, although the church itself is gone, the Visitation site is still the location of our mountain cemetery and is part of Saint Joan of Arc Church.
Many years ago, the Gleason family from Elliottsville donated the land for our first church and cemetery.
Preserving the history and heritage of these early efforts and insuring a future for our cemetery are important responsibilities that go along with being a parish.
Cemetery headstones give clues about the early families and their church community. One can sense the efforts and struggles of these Catholic pioneers.
