At mass on the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Temple, the parish joined Fr. Fraser for the blessing of a beautiful new lindenwood carving of the Madonna and Child for the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary in memory of Robert Hoehn and Clair and Mary Vincent. Additionally, a silver sanctuary lamp for the Shrine was blessed in memory of Louis E. Smith. The Shrine itself was rededicated as it has recently been completely refurbished. Please take a few minutes to contemplate the “majesty and magnificence of God’s presence” at our ‘new’ Shrine of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the narthex and see our Facebook page for more pictures of the blessing.
