Over fifty years ago, Archbishop John Krol announced the establishment of St. Titus Parish on Friday, June 1, 1962 and appointed Rev. William Pope as its founding pastor. The following Sunday the newly established community gathered for the first time to begin celebrating Mass in the basement of the East Norriton Fire House on Swede Street.
The parishioners quickly bonded as a Family of Faith and demonstrated an immediate spirit of dedication, cooperation, sacrifice and joyful service which enabled them to meet the needs at hand. They worked together to address the spiritual, social and financial needs of St. Titus, building a new parish complex they could call home while simultaneously forging relationships and planting roots that would nourish this Parish Family for may generations to come.
Our Parish has faced many challenges through the years, but the continued energy, the dedication of numerous clergy and religious who have faithfully served our parish, have met the challenges moving this loving and lively Family of Faith beyond any obstacles that came our way and deeper into our appreciation of the love of God.
Confident in faith, we continue the legacy of our founders, generously proclaiming God’s love in word and action. Trusting in God’s Providence we look to the future with hope.
