The icon of “Our Lady of Czestochowa” (“the Black Madonna”) is reputed to have been “written” on Mary’s table top from her house in Nazareth by Luke the Evangelist. She has been credited with numerous miracles and healings – both of a spiritual and physical nature. A beautiful copy of this icon has been blessed and consecrated at the monastery of Jasna Gora in Poland, where the original is kept, and entrusted to the defense of life and family.
Now, after traveling 40,000 miles from Vladivostok in Russia through 24 countries in Europe, she will be visiting the Cathedral parish on her global pilgrimage. Please join us as we welcome her to our parish cluster to ask for her protection of life and family as well as personal petitions. A welcoming ceremony will be held during the 5:15pm Mass on May 24 at the Cathedral. Feel free to stop in throughout these days to pray through the intercession of Our Lady of Czestochowa.
