A joyful Catholic revival was celebrated last Friday and Saturday, Feb. 19-20, at Our Lady of Hope Church on North Broad Street in Philadelphia. Father Anthony Bozeman, a Philadelphia native and a priest of the Josephite religious order, preached during liturgies of the revival titled “What Are You Gonna Do? You Gotta Do Somethin!” In addition to Our Lady of Hope parishioners and guests from beyond the parish, the 50-member Philadelphia Catholic Mass Choir, the Immanuel Dancers and Cristo Rey Dancers, plus priests, deacons and lay people provided ministry for the revival.
