St. Francis de Sales is a Roman Catholic parish in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. As a Catholic community of faith, we acknowledge that the Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.
St. Francis de Sales is a parish in which you can truly belong. Whether you are just beginning to explore the Catholic faith or have been Catholic all your life, whether you have attended Mass infrequently in the past or are actively involved in ministry, St. Francis de Sales is a parish where you are valued. As a parish community we care for each other, knowing that through our ministry we serve Christ among us. With the support of our parish family, we minister to those most in need in the Morgantown area and around the world through direct service, collections of food, clothing, gifts, and through monetary contributions as we continue to help build the kingdom of God on earth.
We are conveniently located just off Exit 1 of I-68. Turn right onto US 119 south, then take the first left onto Guthrie Lane, which is at the intersection with Hornbeck Road. Ample parking is available and our building is handicap accessible. Click here to see our location on Google Maps.
