SHRINE OF SS PETER & PAUL CHURCH,CUMBERLAND FOUNDED BY ST JOHN NEPOMUCENE NEUMANN(4th BISHOPOF PHILIDELPHIA),WHERE BLESSED SEELOS SERVED AS PASTOR & PREFECT OF STUDENTS THREATENED WITH CLOSURE( 9 May 2019)

The Shrine of SS Peter & Paul Church, Fayette St., Cumberland, Maryland U.S.A. has long been associated with Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos.It was founded by Redemptorist,St John Nepomucene Neumann ,4th Bishop of Philidelphia.Blessed Seelos was in 1857 made Pastor & Prefect of students at the church and its associated monastory.

The church was made part of the Parish of "Our Lady of the Mountains" in 2011 along with 4 other churches.Interestingly for those who love Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, is the name  the Parish was given-OUR LADY OF THE MOUNTAINS!As any avid Seelos lover will know,he asked his sister to remember him in her prayers at the Shrine of Our Lady Of the Mountains (Frau am Berg Kirche)based in Füssen,Germany where he was born!

At all Masses on March 23/24, 2019,it was announced that the Shrine of SS Peter & Paul  would be among the 3 churches recommended to close in the Parish.It was reported in the Catholic Review,the Archdiocesan newspaper on 28th March 2019

The decision to recommend closure came after 2 years of consultation within the Parish according to sources.

Fr. Harry Griles C.Ss.R. Executive Director of the National Seelos Shrine in New Orleans  said " Sts Peter and Paul is the second most important site in the process of Blessed Seelos being canonized." He said he was going to contact Archbishop William Edward Lori of Baltimore regarding the matter. He also stated that there are graves, long lost behind the church which may have a bearing on the proposed closure!

Many within the Parish and beyond are very upset at the proposed closure of the Shrine and have set up a Save the Shrine Of SS Peter & Paul Facebook page.
