Solemnity of the Dedication of the Chapel of Our Holy Mother

Ten years ago, today, His Excellency, Bishop Joseph Martino, consecrated the altar and dedicated the chapel of the Mercedarian Friars at the Monastery of Our Lady of Mercy, in Philadelphia. In grateful Thanksgiving to Almighty God and the beneficence of Our Blessed Mother, we commemorate this day with great Solemnity and immense JOY! Happy FEAST!

Here is a picture of our small Chapel taken from the Solemnity of Our Lady of Ransom.  Fr. Matthew H. Phelan, M., Superior of the Monastery is leading the Holy Rosary with our Third Order of Mercy and some members of a local Praesidium of the Legion of Mary.  Following the Rosary, the friars, other clergy, the Third Order and the Legion of Mary offered Solemn Vespers.
