Located at 2443 Trenton Road in Levittown, Bucks County, the new Queen of the Universe Parish was formed on July 1 by uniting the former Queen of the Universe and Immaculate Conception B.V.M. parishes.
Prior to the merger Immaculate Conception had a Saturday evening Mass, two Sunday morning Masses and an afternoon Spanish Mass. Queen of the Universe also had a Saturday vigil Mass, three Sunday morning Masses and an evening Sunday Mass.
Now the only Mass celebrated at Immaculate Conception is the Saturday vigil Mass; Queen of the Universe has retained all of its Masses and added the Spanish Mass. Father Michael Hennelly is the parish’s pastor. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
