MAKE HER KNOWN – Jubilee Pilgrim Icon
Visits Ss. Peter & Paul Parish, Saskatoon
In 1866, Pope Pius IX entrusted the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help to the Redemptorists with the mission to “make her known” throughout the world.
Last year, twelve specially prepared icons of Our Mother of Perpetual Help were blessed by Pope Francis and are now traveling the world. One of these twelve icons is visiting Saints Peter and Paul Ukrainian Catholic Church this month. This icon is a sign that Mary is visiting her pilgrim people. The icon is also an instrument of evangelization, and it speaks of the Incarnation, Crucifixion, and Resurrection of Christ, our Redeemer.
To mark the visit of the icon, we will gather as a parish community to pray with and honour Our Mother of Perpetual Help. We will have a Moleben service and a short homily at the following times:
- Wednesday, December 6 at 7:00pm
- Thursday, December 14 at 7:00pm
- Wednesday, December 20 at 7:00pm (followed by confessions).
