A blessing for new life

blessingofnewlife-webFather Matthew Weber blesses children born during the past year following a Mass to celebrate new life at St. Bridget Parish, Glassboro, on Oct. 17. Anyone trying to conceive or adopt, and expectant parents were encouraged to attend. The Mass was sponsored by the St. Gerard Society. Canonized in 1904 by Pope Pius X, St. Gerard Majella (1726-55) is the patron of mothers, motherhood and expectant parents. St. Bridget Parish has a statue of St. Gerard.
