Our Lady of Jasna Gora, Czestochowa
July 31, 2014 @ 11:30 am - August 1, 2014 @ 8:00 pm
The icon of “Our Lady of Czestochowa” (“the Black Madonna”) is reputed to have been “written” on Mary’s table top from her house in Nazareth by Luke the Evangelist. She has been credited with numerous miracles and healings – both of a spiritual and physical nature. A beautiful copy of this icon has been blessed and consecrated at the monastery of Jasna Gora in Poland, where the original is kept, and entrusted to the defense of life and family. Now, after traveling 40,000 miles from Vladivostok in Russia through 24 countries in Europe, she will be visiting Our Lady of Peace Church in Santa Clara on her global pilgrimage. Please join us as we welcome her to Our Lady of Peace Church to ask for her protection of life and family as well as personal petitions. A welcoming ceremony will be held at 11:30a.m. on Thursday July 31 just prior to the 12 noon Mass and she will head to Sacrament on Friday, August 1, 2014.
We welcome your visit. The event is free. Attached is a poster for your reference or if you’d like to share with others.
