A parish in Chesapeake, Virginia will host a Holy Hour of Reparation on Saturday to spiritually combat a scheduled black mass to be held at a bar in nearby Norfolk. A separately organized rosary rally is planned for outside the bar at the time of the event.
"We're holding the Holy Hour at our parish to combat the attacks on the Holy Mother Church and the Holy Mass," an employee of the parish of St. Benedict told CNA on Jan. 22.
"This is our way of fighting back," she said.
The counter-events were announced on the Facebook page for Eucharistia, a eucharistic procession through the Hampton Roads area of southern Virginia.
