The Catholic parishes in Philadelphia’s Mayfair section — St. Matthew, St. Timothy and St. Bernard – will host a multi-denominational prayer service to express gratitude and support for the service of Philadelphia’s police officers on Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m. at St. Matthew Church.

The event is a collaboration of the parishes, the 15th Police District and Oblate Father Steven Wetzel, the chaplain for the Fraternal Order of Police.

St. Matthew’s is located at 3000 Cottman Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia. Parking is available in the rear of the church, which includes an entrance for the handicapped.
