Light in a time of darkness

OVERLAND PARK — This has been a dark year. But on Aug. 22, hundreds of Catholics gathered here to bring on the light — of faith, of hope and prayer.

On the feast of the Queenship of Mary, Catholics from all over the archdiocese gathered with Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann for a candlelight procession and rosary. The event was sponsored by the Holy Family School of Faith Institute.

Archbishop Naumann led a consecration — of those present, the state of Kansas and the nation — to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Mike Scherschligt, executive director of the School of Faith, led the rosary.

The event marked the School of Faith’s official launch of the Move- ment of the Holy Family. This was one of four processions that took place the same evening in Ohio, Georgia and North Carolina.
