St. Louis the King parish in Glendale is hosting a three-day festival October 6 – 9, 2023 of prayer, reflection and celebration with this year’s theme “Mary Queen of Peace.” The schedule includes Holy Mass celebrated in our field with Bishop Nevares, Eucharistic adoration, Confessions, a liturgy with Anointing of the Sick, music, cultural dances and evening entertainment. We will pray the Rosary in a procession with statues from five cultures (Vietnamese, English, Spanish, Myanmar and Eritrea). Three workshops will be presented in English, Vietnamese and Spanish. Cultural foods will be available for purchase throughout the festival.
A special feature will be the presence of the Pilgrim Statue of Our Lady of Fatima, commissioned by St. Lucia herself, which will arrive from the shrine in Carthage, Missouri.
