Bedford County

Bedford County is located in South Central Pa. The countryside is beautiful, prices are affordable, the people are friendly and there are many family oriented activities to enjoy. The pace is a little slower than most places, and we like it that way! Bedford County offers visitors the opportunity to relax and unwind and to get out and explore the great outdoors!

A Message of Hope- Fr. Mark Pattock, OFM Cap “In this time of social distancing, of hunkering down, take care to allow for a slowing down, to deeper prayer. Reinstitute the family recitation of the Rosary. The family that prays together stays together. Now is a privileged time to sink deeply into love, prayer, sacrifice, and mercy. Let your relationship deepen and know the tender love of God. Jesus in my heart, I believe in your tender love for me.”
