Join the Philadelphia Chapter Order of Malta as they commemorate the 447th anniversary of the victory at Lepanto. We will begin at 8PM with vespers in the convent chapel, followed by a backyard gathering at the Lombardi (formerly Wallacavage) cottage. There will be a roaring bonfire accompanied by beverages and snacks, the customary dramatic recitation of “Lepanto” by G.K. Chesterton — as well as the hallmark of the Cephalophore Society: great conversation with your brothers in Christ. Since it will be October, we will return to the jacket (sweater optional) and tie requirementfor this event. Please respond by Friday, 5 October.

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.
