The first Star in Central America
On May 13, 2022, on the Feast of Our Lady of Fátima, St. Helen’s Parish in San Salvador (El Salvador) joined the Work of the Stars on the Mantle of Our Lady, Queen of Peace.
The inauguration event commenced with a procession of a statue of Our Lady of Fátima who was welcomed with reverence and joy by all gathered.
Following the procession, exposition of the Blessed Sacrament took place and participants prayed the Holy Rosary before the Eucharistic Jesus.
H.E. Víctor Jorge Saca, the Honorary Consul of Poland in El Salvador, read the declaration of St. Helen’s Parish joining in the Work of the Stars on the Mantle of Our Lady, Queen of Peace. A message from Mr. Robert Czekaj, Vice President of the Association of Comunità Regina della Pace, was then shared with those in attendance. The adhesion to the Work was received with applause of the faithful and a word of gratitude from the Pastor, Rev. Nelson Díaz.
Rev. Diaz then offered Holy Mass, where all gathered were invited to renewal of the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
The Archdiocesan Catholic Television (TVCA) recorded the event which was graced with abundant floral decorations of the altar and beautiful music lead by the parish choir.
Let us rejoice because another Star on the Mantle of Our Lady, Queen of Peace has come into being and will shine its light, obtaining graces of peace for the parishioners of St. Helen’s and the whole world.
