Saint Miriam Parish & Friary

Saint Miriam Parish & Friary

We are a Franciscan, Old Catholic Parish Community, with a strong emphasis on worship, community, a life of prayer, and where we honor the sacraments, as we proclaim the message of Christ in word and deed, but welcome everyone without reservation! We provide a strong Catholic Liturgy, an inclusive Catholic education, and a vibrant welcome to everyone. Saint Miriam is located in Flourtown, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. We are just minutes from Routes 76, 476, 309, and 202 and our ten acre campus includes Zion Preschool at Saint Miriam, the Historic Union Cemetery of Whitmarsh at Saint Miriam, Friary Bishop’s Chapel, and is also the home to Boy Scout Troop #320, Alcoholics Anonymous Chapter (AA), Recovery, Inc., and as part of our outreach we also lease space to City of Zion Church. We are designated as a Pro Cathedral, as our diocesan bishop is in residence here and serves as our pastor. 

Here, in addition to a warm welcome by a diverse group of people who have made this parish their home, you will find an atmosphere of quiet reflection on the presence of God, great beauty in the visual aspects of the changing liturgical seasons, and worship music that will inspire and transform you! We’re committed to passionate and engaging worship, relevant teaching, and the formation of real community. Feel free to look around, ask questions, and visit us in person where you will experience and become God’s friends… together with us! We know that from the moment you walk through our doors you will feel at home. In our community, you will discover a safe space to explore your deepest longings for God with warm people to support you, just as you are! It matters not to us where you come: from more Orthodox Catholic Churches, any of the varied Protestant denominations, or those from an Eastern Tradition, at Saint Miriam you are welcome!

Please email us for more information and to find out what you have been missing in a true community of faith!

We are more than just inclusive; we welcome everyone to full participation within our parish and preschool. LGBTQ persons are full members in every aspect. We offer a community of hope and love. Join us!
