Traveling Torches in honor of Our Lady of Guadalupe will be traveling throughout the Diocese from late October until December. The purpose of these torches are to encourage devotion and prayers to Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness of the Ameri- cas.
Early morning on Sunday, October 28, the Rev. Joseph J. Donnelly Council, Knights of Columbus will be receiving the torch and presenting it to the parish at the 7:30 Mass at St. Agnes. The torch will remain in the parish until Saturday evening after the 5:15 Mass when it will continue its travels to the next Knights of Columbus Council.
During the time it is in the parish, all are encour- aged to attend devotions and prayer services with the torch. A box will be provided for the collection of petitions. Each parish ministry is encouraged to in- clude the torch in a service with its members. The Rev. Donnelly Council has scheduled the recitation of the Rosary and the showing of a documentary movie “Guadalupe, the Miracle and the Message at 7pm on Tuesday, October 30. The location will be announced.
