I’m Fr. Clifton Bishop, “Fr. Cliff”, and I am the Pastor of Incarnation of Our Lord Parish and Holy Ghost Church, both in South Bethlehem.
Incarnation of Our Lord Parish is a Catholic community in the Diocese of Allentown, Pennsylvania. The parish is a merged parish, which was established in 2008 from the Slovak (Sts. Cyril & Methodius), Hungarian (St. John Capistrano), Solvenian (St. Joseph), Polish (St. Stanislaus), and Italian (Our Lady of Pompeii) Catholic Churches in the South Side of Bethlehem.
We are now a territorial parish, serving the needs of all in the South Side Bethlehem neighborhoods in addition to the former members of the five mother Churches.
Incarnation of Our Lord Parish also has a sister parish, Holy Ghost Church on Carlton Ave. The two parishes share a Pastor, a Deacon, a liturgical schedule, common prayer, and a mission to serve the South Side of Bethlehem.
I invite you to come and worship with us and to be part of the family as we strive to make the Word made Flesh present!
