Altar Consecration at Coronation of Our Lady Catholic Church,
Grandview, Missouri

Following a renovation of the main church, a special Mass celebrated by Bishop James V. Johnston was held for the consecration of the new altar at Coronation of Our Lady Catholic Church, Grandview, Missouri. This parish was the first parish to support our brother community, the Canons Regular of Jesus the Lord, when they first started their parish work in Vladivostok, Russia in the early 90s. Sister Gemma Maria had the privilege to be part of the choir during the Mass.
