Lenten Pilgrimage of Prayer & Mercy

The Felician Sisters of South Carolina, together with the Board of Directors of the Felician Center, invite you to join them for a “Lenten Pilgrimage of Prayer and Mercy” on Saturday, 16 March 2019. This pilgrimage to Kingstree, South Carolina and to the Felician Center is a unique opportunity for those from our parish to associate themselves even more closely through prayer and service with the mission and ministry of the Felician Center.

The pilgrimage will begin at 11a with Mass at the Shrine of Our Lady of Joyful Hope celebrated by Fr. Smith and conclude at 5p. Participants will hear talks on the spirituality and vision of Blessed Angela, learn more about the work of the Felicians here in South Carolina, and render acts of service by helping in the clothing closet, food pantry, or other service area. Prayers for Blessed Angela’s intercession for specific needs and a blessing with her relics will be offered for all at the end of Mass. This is an excellent opportunity to spiritually prepare for Easter through prayer and acts of service while learning more about the work we already support at the Felician Center.

Transportation, for which there may be a nominal cost, will be arranged from Prince of Peace based on interest and sufficient numbers.
