Three churches, St. Mary Church, Madonna of Jerusalem Church and St. John Cantius Church form the Saint Juan Diego Parish. Bishop David Zubik of the Diocese of Pittsburgh created the Parish in 2009, at the behest of the parishioners, who called for the three churches to form one Parish. Saint Juan Diego, a Native American from Mexico, was chosen as the name of the Parish because of Sharpsburg’s ties with Native Americans, specifically Guyasuta and the Senecas.
