Stop 24 of the M.I. Initiative took place at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish, New Bedford, MA at the weekend Masses on September 11 -12. The pastor, Our Lady of the Angels Province friar – Fr. Conrad Salach, OFM Conv. and the parishioners warmly welcomed the invitation to entrust themselves to the Immaculate Mother of God and become members of the M.I. As they marked the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy, they recalled that just as Pope St. John Paul II declared St. Maximilian a saint for a difficult century, we are perhaps more in need of St. Maximilian and the M.I. now in the 21st century.
