Mother of Mercy House will celebrate Mass on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 4 p.m. in McPherson Park, 601 East Indiana Avenue, in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.
We will pray in a special way for all those affected by addiction: those struggling with drug addiction, family members and friends affected by loved ones struggling with addiction or who have died due to it.
Malvern Institute is partnering with Mother of Mercy House on this event. Together we hope to support those caught in the grip of addiction and offer spiritual support and counseling for family and friends.
Those wishing to join us can meet us at the park at 4 p.m. or meet us at Mother of Mercy House, 709 East Allegheny Avenue in Philadelphia, at 3:30 p.m. and walk over together to the park.
We hope this will be the beginning of partnering to bring ongoing help and support for many.

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.
