The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is hosting a May procession at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul on Sunday, May 3 at 2 p.m. The procession will begin with a Liturgy of the Word in the cathedral and will be followed by an outdoor procession, rosary and crowning of a statue of the Blessed Mother.
First Communicants are invited to wear their suits or dresses.
Mary’s Court for Crowning will be selected from brief essays submitted by individuals or families entitled “Why My Family Calls Upon Mary.”
For more information, including guidelines for essay submissions, visit www.PhillyEvang.org/procession.
Help us keep you informed -- CatholicPhilly.com can't do it with youDuring CatholicPhilly.com's fall donation campaign, you have a way to help us deliver the kind of news you need to know about the Catholic Church, especially in the Philadelphia region, and the world in which we live. Every household's costs keep rising, and we're no different. We make sure your dollars in any amount go a long way toward continuing our mission to inform, form in the Catholic faith and inspire the thousands of readers who visit every month. Here is how you can help:
- A $100 gift allows us to present award-winning photos of Catholic life in our neighborhoods.
- A $50 gift enables us to cover a news event in a local parish, school or Catholic institution.
- A $20 gift lets us obtain solid faith formation resources that can deepen your spirituality and knowledge of the faith.
- A small, automated monthly donation means you can support us continually and easily.
Please join in the church's vital mission of communications by offering a gift in whatever amount that you can -- a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more, or a monthly donation. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
