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.
