Mater Dolorosa Parish, a beacon of faith in the Frankford area for over 100 years, will celebrate its farewell Mass on Sunday, June 30.
A “procession of solidarity” begins the day’s events at 11 a.m., in which parishioners and friends are invited to gather at Paul and Unity Streets (the site of the original chapel and school). Participants will then process to Mater Dolorosa Church for the farewell Mass.
All parishioners and guests are asked to wear either a white ribbon on the right arm or a white ribbon corsage.
A luncheon follows immediately after Mass.
RSVP is required: contact either Rose Flemming at 215-535-1510 or Patrick Loftus at 215-535-8597.
