On Monday, March 14th at 7:00pm, at St. Andrew Church, the parish hosted The Pilgrim Icon in honor of St. Joseph and Evening Prayer.
This Icon of St. Joseph was blessed by Pope Francis and is traveling throughout the United States. The Icon was venerated at the end of the Evening Prayer service.
Since its inception in 1979, the Knights of Columbus Pilgrim Icon Program has held more than 174,800 local and parish prayer services with some 22 million participants. Pope Francis in 2013 hosted the Knights and said, “I commend all of you in a special way to the intercessions of St. Joseph, the protector of the Holy Family of Nazareth, who is an admirable model of those manly virtues of quiet strength, integrity, and fidelity which the Knights of Columbus are committed to preserving, cultivating and passing on to future generations.”
