Our Lady of Perpetual Help Rosary - Tue., Jun. 27

9:30 a.m. | Nave - The Legion of Mary will offer a special Rosary in honor of the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, also known as Our Lady of Perpetual Succour. She was designated as the national Patroness of the Republic of Haiti. Many Haitians credit the Virgin Mary under this title in performing miracles to prevent a cholera and smallpox outbreak which ravaged the country in 1882. Joined with our brothers and sisters in our twin parishes in Haiti, let us all call on our Holy Mother’s intercession.
