The Central Association for the Miraculous Medal in Philadelphia invites college students and young adults to “Welcome Back Novena” for the new school year.
The gathering, which will take place at the shrine on Sept. 23 at 6 p.m., will begin with a holy (half) hour, followed by a novena. After adoration and prayers, attendees will have the opportunity to mingle with local students, campus ministers,and young adults for some fellowship and food catered by Chick-fil-A. For those with a sweet tooth, there will be an ice cream sundae bar as well.
Those who register and attend this event will be automatically entered in the drawing to win a $100 Visa gift card.
The Central Association of the Miraculous Medal is located at 475 E. Chelten Avenue in Philadelphia.
The event is free but registration is requested. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/494373174698080/
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.
