Our Mother of Consolation School held it’s annual Prayer Convocation on Tuesday, September 20. Over 200 students, families and staff gathered in the parish church on the eve of the first day of school. The annual gathering was created by Our Mother of Consolations’ Spirituality Committee. Reverend Robert L. Bazzoli, O.S.F.S., pastor of Our Mother of Consolation led the school community in prayer.
Following the prayer convocation, ice cream was served in the front school yard, which is currently under renovation for the school’s youngest students and will include a prayer garden, large playground and stepping stones made from reclaimed wood. Students were able to reconnect with fellow classmates and share stories from their summer activities.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
