End Date and Time

Our Lady of the Assumption Church cordially invites you to visit their
church during Lent of this year to view the pilgrim Statue of the
Scourged Christ. This compelling life-sized Statue has mass appeal,
drawing thousands of visitors to gaze upon its graphic representation
of the suffering of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
To some observers, the Statue is somewhat unsettling, but to most, it
is a fascinating and deeply moving work of art, an awesome sight to
behold. Long before Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” ever hit
the movie screens this statue was bringing the reality of what Christ
must have suffered into the conscious minds of the thousands of people
who looked upon it!
The Statue of the Scourged Christ will remain at Our Lady of the
Assumption Church throughout Lent. All are welcome to visit our parish
to see this impressive image.

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.
