chapelblessing 150The dedication of a church, like baptism, confirmation and ordination, is a rite that is enacted only once.

Archbishop George Pell

 

ourladychapel 150Ancient tradition asserts the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour was originally written by St Luke. The image became popular, and was widely reproduced, in Greece in the 13th century.

The Molczyk icon of “Our Lady of Perpetual Succour”, also known as “Our Lady of Perpetual Help”, is based on a miraculous 15th century Byzantine icon which resides in Rome, at the church of Sant’Alfonso de Ligouri.
