First Mass Celebrated at FSSP Philadelphia

On this great feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, we give humble thanks to God for our new apostolate in Philadelphia. This past week, St. Mary Church in Conshohocken celebrated its first week of Masses as an apostolate of the Fraternity of St. Peter, beginning with a Solemn High Mass on Sunday, September 9th, offered by Fr. Carl Gismondi, the new pastor of St. Mary. He was assisted by Fr. Gregory Eichman, pastor of our apostolate in Harrisburg, as deacon, and Fr. Scott Allen, chaplain to the Carmelite monastery in Philadelphia, as subdeacon. Over 500 people attended!
