Marian Mission in North Philadelphia
St. Veronica’s Church, 533 W. Tioga St., Philadelphia.
Start Date and Time:
June 19th 9AM
End Date and Time
June 25th 8PM
An invitation from Fr. Joseph LoJacono, IVE, Pastor of St. Veronica’s Parish in Philadelphia: “As some of you may know, my parish’s boundaries are located in what the police call ‘the badlands,’ one of the worst area for drugs and violence in North Philadelphia in the second poorest zip code in the country. I hope to put the Blessed Virgin Mary everywhere through continuous Rosary marches, some processions, as well as enthroning statues of Mary in homes and in local stores.”
Father also shares, “This is inspired by Bishop Oliver Dashe Doeme from the Diocese of Maiduguri in northern Nigeria. He saw his people being overrun by radical Islamic terrorists, Boko Haram. When he prayed about this before Christ in the Eucharist, the Lord told him the Rosary will overcome them.” (Read the article about Bishop Doeme
here.) Please considering joining in this mission! It will take place from June 19-25 starting at St. Veronica’s Church, 533 W. Tioga St., Philadelphia.
