Welcome to Our Lady of Consolation Parish

Opened as an Italian personal parish, Our Lady of Consolation is proud to be serving the community of Tacony in Philadelphia for 100 years and counting. Our parish has a plethora of ministries that appeal to just about everyone. We are certain that one or more parish ministries will touch speak to your heart.

Confirmation Mass Set for Sunday, May 15th

The Most Reverend Bishop Timothy C. Senior will preside over the 11:00AM bi-lingual mass as we present 19 PREP students for Confirmation. Please keep these young people in your prayers as they receive the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

During the Rite of Confirmation the bishop or priest who administers the sacrament lays their hands upon those who are to be confirmed and says:

“All powerful God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, by water and the Holy Spirit you freed your sons and daughters from sin and gave them new life. Send your Holy Spirit upon them to be their helper and guide. Give them the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of right judgment and courage, the spirit of knowledge and reverence. Fill them with the spirit of wonder and awe in your presence. We ask this through Christ our Lord.”

This rite marks each person with a spiritual seal. The Seven Gifts that are bestowed “complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them” (CCC 1831). 

Volunteers Needed on May 10th to Prepare the Church for Confirmation

To prepare for this wonderful event, we are seeking volunteers to help clean the church. This will take place on Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30PM. The more volunteers, the more fun you’ll have. We appreciate all who can spare some time to make our church gleam for Confirmation Mass.
