On Friday, October 21, 2016, the families of St. Simon Stock Parish, in the Bronx, united to crown the Pilgrim MTA shrines. Esmeralda Ramos with the Daughters of Mary began the celebration with the rosary, leading the families into the Eucharistic Celebration. The Holy Mass was offered in thanksgiving for the 102nd Anniversary of Schoenstatt origins and the covenant of love.
For a better understanding of the celebration I was invited for an explanation of Schoenstatt and of the crowning.
Meals & Refreshments were served together with the delicious MTA cake, a well-known in our community.
We thank Fr. Nelson Belizario for his constant support and love to the Mother Thrice Admirable and the Schoenstatt Family. We also thank Fr. Alvaro, the main celebrant. Many more thanks to all that made of this beautiful celebration another opportunity for the community to gather as one family and learn and experience the Schoenstatt living the covenant of love.
