Padre Pio is known and recognized as the first stigmatized priest. But did you know there is another first?  Father William Atkinson, whose cause for canonization is now in process, is the first quadriplegic ordained as a priest in the history of the Roman Catholic Church.  Born in Philadelphia, he served at Monsignor Bonner High School for almost thirty years (1975-2004). There, he served on the faculty and as assistant school chaplain, moderator of the football team, and director of the afterschool and Saturday detention program.  Learn about his life and priestly ministry in this fascinating documentary shown on the “big screen” in the Spirituality Centre.  All participants will receive prayer leaflets, while supplies last, seeking the intercession of Servant of God, Father Bill Atkinson.  No registration is needed to attend.
