Marion Icon on display through Aug. 15

LAPLACE — The Knights of Columbus, Ascension of Our Lord Council 9623, is pleased to announce the Marion Icon will be on display in the Ascension of Our Lord Adoration Chapel until Aug. 15.

Prayers will be recited for our Lady’s Help of persecuted Christians in the United States and around the world.

The Knights of Columbus introduces a new Marian Prayer Program every couple of years. The Marian image then makes a pilgrimage through each state or jurisdiction, with councils hosting a prayer service at their parish or other venues.

The Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church is located at 1900 Greenwood Drive in LaPlace. A mask covering the nose and mouth is required at all times in the Adoration Chapel, unless you are alone. The Adoration Chapel remains open 24/7, as faith perseveres through the COVID-19 pandemic and the unrest in the world.
