Church to host Franciscan Profession Mass
Prince of Peace Catholic Church will host a special Mass to welcome three parishioners to the Secular Franciscan Order at 10 a.m. Friday. The candidates – Elaine Gibbs, John Kemper and John Main – will become members of the San Damiano Fraternity. They have been studying for three years and are ready to take the final step toward becoming professed members of the order, which emulates St. Francis of Assisi’s great love of God, devotion to the gospel and joyful appreciation of the beauty of all God’s creation.
Prince of Peace Catholic Church is at 702 Valley Forge Blvd. For information, visit www.popcc.org.
