St. Elizabeth of Hungary Parish is a wonderful welcoming Family of Faith located in Smethport, Pennsylvania - part of the Bradford Deanery in the Diocese of Erie, Pennsylvania. Our pastor, since 2005, is Father Vincent Cieslewicz, Jr. Along with St. Joseph Church our Mission in Mt. Jewett, Pennsylvania, we are a great community with two wonderful places to worship. Our church has a long history in the Smethport area, having first served early settlers in Smethport and surrounding communities. The parish is a very active part of the Smethport community. There are currently approximately 230 registered families. As the People of God, we rejoice in doing our very best to live and love like Christ! We are committed to loving God, loving others, and making disciples. Founders, long-time parishioners, newcomers, and those visiting the area are all welcome. May the Lord’s every blessing be yours today and always!
