General Location

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church (or more commonly known as St. Mary's) is located in the Borough of Central City, PA in northeastern Somerset County. It serves parishioners living in Somerset, Cambria, and Bedford Counties and is central to the larger cities of Somerset (to the south and west), Johnstown (to the north), and Bedford (to the east). St. Mary's also serves as the "mother parish" to SS Peter & Paul Russian Orthodox Church in Boswell, PA and SS Peter & Paul Russian Orthodox Church in Pine Hill, PA. The community of Central City sits atop the beautiful Laurel Highlands of the Allegheny Mountain Range of the Appalachian Mountains. Many tourist attractions are within a short drive from the church including the Flight 93 Memorial and Quecreek Mine Rescue Sites as well as Seven Springs and Hidden Valley Ski Resorts. Despite a declining population now standing at 1,233 (2002), there are still two Orthodox churches in town.
