The main celebrant will be Archbishop Mieczyslaw Mokrzycki, who served as Saint John Paul’s personal secretary from 1996 to 2005 and is the current Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lviv, Ukraine. The Mass will be celebrated in English and Polish. Everyone is invited to attend this historic and truly special occasion with the parishioners of St. John Cantius. A light reception will follow the Mass in the auditorium. More information can be found here:
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.
