On Saturday, May 17th we celebrated the women we serve in our Visitation Mission- all our heroic mothers- and welcomed them and their children to our Centre at St. Catherine of Siena for an afternoon of festivities, fellowship and food.  Seminarians provided entertainment and “All 4 Him,” a local praise and worship band, supplied amazing music for our guests!  Fr. Peter Marr spoke beautifully to all who gathered about the beauty of motherhood.  The celebration concluded with a crowning of Our Blessed Mother and all were invited to bring a candle forward along with their prayer intentions.   All in all it was a beautiful celebration!
