Icon of Our Lady

The Marian image displayed this weekend in the Church is an icon entitled “Our Lady, Help of Persecuted Christians”, created by the Knights of Columbus to serve as the centerpiece for prayer services in churches and council meeting places. This year’s prayer service is intended to raise awareness of the plight of Christians persecuted for their faith, and to stand in prayerful solidarity with them. We are grateful to Jim Twyman and the Knights for bringing the icon to Our Lady of Grace. You will find prayer cards and information pertaining to the icon in the Commons.
