The first stop was the Miraculous Medal Shrine in the Germantown area. This was followed by a visit to the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter & Paul where for a few minutes they witnessed the ordination of four new priests. They then traveled to the Shrine of St. John Neumann in North Philadelphia and enjoyed a talk about the Saint’s life given by Father Raymond Collins. The final stops on the trip were the Shrine of St. Rita of Cascia in South Philadelphia and the Shrine of St. Katherine Drexel in Bensalem. “The closing of the St. Katherine Drexel shrine at the end of 2017 added to the specialness of the group’s visit to this shrine,” said Sr. Diane.
“We all expressed our gratitude to Liz Kimmel for all her hard work in arranging, coordinating, and publicizing the trip,” said Rosemarie Milletti. “The experience was both humbling and deeply spiritually enriching.” Rosemarie McCafferty adds, “We all experienced a memory never to be forgotten. Thank you and God bless you Liz.”
A celebration where religion meets culture!
Our Confirmation Celebration
I went on this trip and had a wonderful time with my partner in crime RoseMarie McCafferty. So sorry I forgot to send the picture of one of the sisters kneeling at the statue of St. Rita.
I also enjoyed briefly seeing the ordination of the four new priests at the cathedral.
Thank you for posting the beautiful photos from our shrine. Just want you to know the website address that is posted is incorrect. It should be http://www.KatharineDrexel.org (there is no “e” in the middle of Katharine).
We wouldn’t want people to be misdirected.
