On Saturday, January 11, a charter bus filled with our MMM, their Mothers, and several of our Altar Servers traveled out to Elysburg, PA to visit the Carmelite Sisters at the Monastery of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.  A beautiful Solemn High Mass was celebrated in the Monastery Chapel by Fr. Woodrow (Celebrant), Fr. Barone (Deacon) and FSSP Seminarian Mr. Charles Vreeland (Sub-Deacon, who will be ordained in June).  Everyone had an opportunity to meet with these joyful Sisters after lunch.  May God continue to bless these wonderful Sisters and their young and very rapidly growing Community!

MMM Pilgrimage to the Shrine of the Miraculous Medal

On September 8, over 30 of our Maidens of the Miraculous Medal (MMM) and Mothers visited the Shrine of the Miraculous Medal in Philadelphia. Rev. Brian Woodrow, accompanied by Mr. Carlo SantaTeresa as Altar Server, celebrated a Traditional Latin Low Mass at the main altar of the Shrine. Our young ladies were then formally invested in the Miraculous Medal by Fr. Woodrow immediately after Mass. The MMM will now wear these special Miraculous Medals with their blue sashes in all of their processions. Our girls were very happy to honor Our Lady in this most beautiful way on her birthday!
