On Wednesday, January 5th, members of the Missouri Area gathered at Immacolata Catholic Church for the Area’s monthly rosary. This evening prayer also included the blessing of a new icon by local Area Chaplain, the Rev. Msgr. Vernon Gardin, ChM.
This icon, which will henceforth be present at all Area’s Masses and Rosaries, represents Our Lady of Philermo, to whom our Order has a special devotion. The icon, which reproduces a mosaic in the Vatican, was acquired with the assistance of local member, Dan Stutte, KM.
