St. Catherine to hold first-ever liturgical memorial of Blessed Michael McGivney

TRUMBULL—Friday, August 13 will be the first-ever liturgical memorial of Blessed Michael McGivney, the diocesan priest who founded the Knights of Columbus.  He was beatified last October in Hartford in ceremonies led by Joseph Cardinal Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, on behalf of Pope Francis.

St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Trumbull will celebrate his feast day with a special Mass at 7 pm on August 13.  A first-class relic of Blessed Michael will be present on the altar, and everyone present will be blessed with the relic. The Litany of Blessed Michael McGivney will be prayed at the Mass, and an ice cream social will follow. Everyone is welcome! No reservations necessary.
