Welcome to the online home of Saint Miriam Parish. 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! We provide a strong Catholic Liturgy, an inclusive Catholic education, and a vibrant welcome to everyone without reservation. Saint Miriam is located in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia, adjacent to Plymouth Meeting. We are just minutes from Routes 476, 309, and 202 and just a mile from the Plymouth Meeting Mall. 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!

Saint Miriam is a great way to explore what God has in store for you and to discover the unique ways an inclusive community of faith can bring hope, healing, and stability as you uncover new and wonderful ways to experience the love of God you’d never find if you were alone.


So stop by and visit, become involved in one of our many Small Groups, or get introduced to the many ways we offer you to explore your faith that match your taste. Share what you love and discover a new church that your friends will love, too. Remember that the more you connect the more you will discover God in your life!

We offer a refreshing new approach to parish life, so why not give us a try this week? Need a good place to start? Visit our "I'm New Here" page, visit our new communication and multimedia site by Clicking Here to download our new Saint Miriam Parish App and begin your journey today!

We really do help change lives, enable people to build new bridges, and work to bring about real and lasting joy through our open hearts that bring us ever closer to God's love and hope for our lives! So come to Saint Miriam and experience a unique appreciation and a breathtaking approach to liturgy and community, but where all are truly welcomed!

From our modern and beautifully-appointed spaces, including our Saint Miriam Cafe' and Bell Tower Garden, to our warm and inviting services, including challenging and thought-provoking messages, to those simply needing an inclusive and accepting spiritual home. Saint Miriam is a place of compassion, acceptance, and renewal no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.

If you have been 'Catholic' all your life, but somehow aren't sure about your belonging any longer, or find yourself out-of-sync with the church hierarchy, why not give us a try? We might just change the way you feel about coming to church! We believe that church should be more than about rules and regulations, it should always be about the love and grace of God!

Please email us at for more information and to find out what you have been missing in a true community of faith! If you care to "test drive" us first, please visit New Here and watch a video and get timely and factual information.
