Public Rosary for Harmony, Peace, and Justice

Gather with us at noon on Saturday, September 19 to pray our Lady’s great gift to us: the most holy Rosary! Our intentions together as we walk through the Glorious Mysteries will be for harmony in our community, justice in our country, and peace in our world.
We’ll meet on the front steps of the church at noon. Join us for as long as you can–in person or at home!

CORPUS CHRISTI 2019

June 23, 10:15 am

Walk with Him through West Philly!

A show of unity, a display of the pride we have in our community’s diversity, and a great and ancient Catholic tradition, the Corpus Christi procession unites the Body of Christ around His Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament. Join us as we carry Him Who carries us through the streets of West Philadelphia.

A bilingual Mass for both our English-speaking and Spanish-speaking communities will be at 10:15 am, with the traditional procession following, and benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament on the steps of the school. Afterwards, do join us for a delicious spread of refreshments in the parish hall. All are most welcome!
