St. Agnes Parish in West Chester invites all to the 96th annual celebration of the Feast of the Assumption on Sunday, Aug. 16.
The day begins with Mass at 9 a.m. in the church located on Gay Street in West Chester, followed by a Communion Breakfast at the nearby Elks Lodge. A solemn procession begins at 2:30 p.m. in front of the church, with benediction to follow.
Although the feast is of Italian heritage, all Christians are invited to honor Mary, the Mother of God, on her feast day.
Call Barbara Mange 610-389-0728 or Marie Mauro at 610-692-4597 for more information and tickets for the breakfast.
