Report: Solemn Consecration of the City of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

On Saturday, 4 June 2016, in a historic ceremony sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161, the City of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, was solemnly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The consecration was performed by the pastors of the three Catholic parishes located in Aliquippa, and the mayor.

                                                          Mayor of the City of Aliquippa

The ceremonies began with a procession into St. George Church with the icon of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts, the praying of the Holy Rosary, and a Divine Liturgy in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  This was followed by the solemn consecration of the city.

The faithful then moved to nearby St. Titus Church for a Solemn High Traditional Latin Mass offered in thanksgiving for the consecration.  Canon Jean-Marie Moreau of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest offered the Votive Mass of Christ the King assisted by Fr. Ladis J. Cizik as deacon, and Fr. David G. Rombold as subdeacon.  The Bach Choir of Pittsburgh sang Mozart's Coronation Mass.
