Our Lady of Peace has been chosen to host the annual FAITH OF AFRICA celebration on June 24, 2012. This annual celebration began at our parish eight years ago and has traveled around to different parishes in the Diocese and is now “coming home.”
Our Catholic Brothers and Sisters from the many different nations and cultures of Africa come together with all to celebrate our shared faith in God and our joint membership in the family of the Catholic Church.
Fr. Dennis Mrosso, chaplain at Marymount Hospital, Native of Tanzania, and member of the Missionary Order of the Apostles of Jesus, will be the celebrant and homilist.
The music and gestures, languages and customs of Africa will be featured during the 11am Mass on Sunday, June 24. Following the Mass there is a reception featuring African food in Cummins Hall. YOU are invited and welcome! Spread the word!
