All are invited to a special event on Tuesday, June 13th from 6:45-8:15 PM to hear Fr. Lawrence Carney, the author of the book "The Secret of the Holy Face" speak at Nativity of Mary.
It is with great pleasure that we present this opportunity for our community to gather and learn from Fr. Carney's profound insights and spiritual wisdom. Fr. Carney will delve into the history of the Holy Face of Jesus devotion, the practices associated with the devotion and how to join the Archconfraternity of the Holy Face in Tours, France. This will be followed by a brief Q & A and a booksigning. Fr. Carney's deep understanding and passion for this subject promise to inspire and deepen our own spiritual journeys.
Fr. Carney Bio:
Father Lawrence Carney was ordained for the Diocese of Wichita in 2007. In 2014, he was appointed as chaplain of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles and he walks the streets of US cities in cassock carrying a crucifix and a rosary in each hand in an effort to bring souls to the Catholic Church. In 2017, he began the League of St. Martin, a pious association of the faithful that prays for reverence, reparation, and reversion—the chief goals being enrollment in the Archconfraternity of the Holy Face and the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary. In 2022 continuing as chaplain of the Nuns and director of the League, he was appointed Apostolic Priest of Wichita, Kansas.
