The Catholic parishes in Philadelphia’s Mayfair section — St. Matthew, St. Timothy and St. Bernard – will host a multi-denominational prayer service to express gratitude and support for the service of Philadelphia’s police officers on Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m. at St. Matthew Church.
The event is a collaboration of the parishes, the 15th Police District and Oblate Father Steven Wetzel, the chaplain for the Fraternal Order of Police.
St. Matthew’s is located at 3000 Cottman Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. Parking is available in the rear of the church, which includes an entrance for the handicapped.
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.
