Announcing the Fifth Annual Procession of Maria SS. Addolorata in Bensonhurst
Prayer is a beautiful and private expression of gratitude. However, on special occasions, publicly displaying thankfulness on a grander scale shows upmost respect and grace. Show your appreciation and enthusiasm by participating in St. Athanasius Church’s Fifth Annual Procession in honor of Maria SS. Addolorata on September 8th — the birthday of the Madonna. Join 2012 Grand Marshals, Angela and Michael Stephan, and Monsignor David Cassato for High Mass at 5:30 PM. After the beautiful ceremony, which will include a highly anticipated performance of "Ave Maria" by Alfred Mendez, there will be a procession through the neighborhood of St. Athanasius (Bensonhurst, Brooklyn) followed by refreshments served in the school’s auditorium. Leading up to this holy event, sponsored by the Associazione Culturale Pugliese Figli Maria SS. Addolorata, is a nine-day novena that will begin everyday at 8 PM. For more information or to volunteer your time, please call Lucrezia at (917) 509-2803.
