2012 High Mass in honor of St. Philomena

Here are photos from the Sung High Mass, in honor of St. Philomena, last Saturday (8/11/12) at the Five Wounds Portuguese National Church celebrated by Rev. Fr. William J. Stout, SJ. while Rev. Canon William Avis, Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, heard confession before mass started. After mass, the faithful prayed the Litany of St. Philomena then proceeded with a candlelight Rosary procession outside the church; followed by the veneration of Her 1st class relic. The event concluded with a simple reception at the parish hall.
