First Friday...September

Today we traveled to Lancaster for our first First Friday field trip of the year.
We visited a gorgeous church there that has been in existence since the mid 1900's.
The parish was only the fourth parish established in the colonies in 1741.

The Sanctuary as you come in...


The Main Altar


The organ is amazing!!














The Stations of the Cross...Beautiful Frescos



The Sacred Heart and the Tabernacle
It was wonderful of Christine to set up the tour for us.
We heard an informative talk by one of the parishioners, we were able to go to Confession, pray the Rosary, and attend First Friday Mass!
Because this is a pilgrim church, we received an indulgence! What a bonus!

Afterward, we went to a local park for a short visit. We needed to get home.
It was a day of blessings!
