Our Lady of the New Millennium
Saturday-Sunday, Nov. 22-23, the Helpers of God’s Precious Infants will hold a 24-hour prayer vigil featuring the 33-foot-tall statue of Our Lady of the New Millennium owned by Mrs. Francine Demma of the Archdiocese of Chicago. The vigil begins with Mass at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22 with Bishop Raymond Goedert at the Knanaya Center (map) just north of Albany, and ends with Mass at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 23.
The vigil will feature the Rosary, the Way of the Cross, Hymns, meditation and other prayers as pro-life Christians from all around Chicagoland come together to pray for an end to abortion. Non-Catholics are warmly invited to participate, finding in Mary the biblical model for motherhood.
The Knanaya Center and nearby Women’s Center will be open for bathroom breaks and warming up, plus a rented camper and snacks for those on the night-watch. For more information on the vigil or the regular schedule of prayer and counseling at Albany, call Julie McCreevy at 773-777-5303.
