Prayer Vigil & Procession for Persecuted Christians
November 23, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Friday, September 21, 2018, the Feast of Saint Matthew, there will be a Procession of Prayer for Persecuted Christians and Minorities in New York City. The Traditional Latin Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite will be offered at 6 PM at Holy Innocents Church, West 37th Street and Broadway. Following Mass, we will get ready with signs, rosaries, prayer books and the canopy.
We will process to Herald Square with the True Relic of the Holy Cross to pray the Holy Rosary (34th Street and Broadway). Next, we will pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet while we process to Times Square. The Chaplet of Saint Michael will be prayed in Times Square (43rd Street and Broadway). The Prayer Vigil will conclude with the Litany for Persecuted Christians in front of Holy Innocents Church.
The Faithful will have the opportunity to venerate the Relic of the True Cross and to be blessed with Holy Water from the Grotto Chapel of Our Lady’s apparition at Lourdes, France.
