In July, 2013, after the Archdiocesan decision to merge the two Tacony parishes, Father Joseph Farrell, then pastor of St. Leo the Great Territorial Parish, was named pastor of Our Lady of Consolation Parish by Archbishop Charles Chaput and was charged with working with the faithful of both parishes to create a faith-filled, vibrant parish community for all Catholics in Tacony.
Our Lady of Consolation Parish is located in the Tacony section of Philadelphia on Tulip Street between Princeton Street and Tyson Avenue, and was built in 1956. Parishioners may attend three English masses, one Latin mass or one Spanish mass each Sunday. Daily mass is held at 8:00 am, and reconciliation is every Saturday at 4:00 pm.
