Pilgrimages to Missionaries of the Poor in Jamaica

IHM Pilgrimage to Kingston September 30-October 7, 2016

Since the visit of Father Charles, MOP to our parish in Advent 2008, we have been supporting the Missionaries of the Poor and their works. In 2009, 16 of us made a pilgrimage to Kingston, Jamaica and worked with taking care of the 500 or so disabled and crippled residents. In 2010, Our parish again supported a mission with generous gifts of clothing, medical and other supplies, and money. In 2011, 5 parish members and 6 pilgrims from other churches went to Jamaica. A slideshow of the pilgrimage is available below.

In 2012, 2 parish members went with 10 members of other parishes to Kingston to work with Missionaries of the Poor (click for web site)caring for disabled and homeless men, women and children.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
