Akron, Ohio, July 9. 2022—A Eucharistic procession and Patriotic Rosary took place through the streets of downtown Akron on July 9, 2022. Beginning at St. Bernard Church and ending at St. Mary Church, priests, and a deacon from the parishes of St. Bernard/St. Mary and St. Hilary joined the faithful in praying the Patriotic Rosary, praying for all offices of government and each of the 50 States. Organized by the Legion of Mary, Our Lady of Humility Praesidium, the procession attracted faithful from all over Northeast Ohio. “We had about 75 people in the procession, and another thirty people in St. Mary Church, praying the Rosary simultaneously” commented Ro Reed, President of the group who organized the event. "We looked to Fr. Chris (Zerucha) the pastor of both St. Bernard's and St. Marys for direction, given the unrest in the City of Akron. We prayed in a special way for peace, bringing Jesus and His Mother Mary to the streets and we received a very positive response from the community."
