Philadelphia Area Celebrates Our Lady’s Birthday with Holy Mass


On September 8th, Philadelphia Area members gathered at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church to celebrate the feast day of Our Lady of Philermos, and the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Our celebrant Father Eric Banneker, Ch. de M., Federal Association, gave an impassioned Homily highlighting Mary’s great “fiat”, and how each of us are called and compelled as Members of Our Order to make our own great “fiat” and to answer “Yes, let it be done according to Thy Word.” Following Holy Mass, members and their guests enjoyed one another’s company at a local Italian restaurant in Ardmore, PA
