Tomorrow, Saturday (August 10, 2019 at 7:00 PM), the Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory in San Jose, CA will celebrate the 19th Annual Mass of St. Philomena at Five Wounds Church. There is a need for flower girls between the ages of three and twelve for the procession after mass. Rose petals and baskets will be provided. This is the second year that the statue of our Lady of Grace will join the candle light procession after the Mass. The statue was donated by the late Father William Stout.
