The Diocese of Scranton will celebrate its annual Mother’s Day Adoption Mass on Sunday, May 8, at 10 a.m. at the Cathedral of Saint Peter, Scranton. This liturgy prayerfully recognizes all mothers, with a special emphasis on adoptive and foster mothers. Bishop Joseph C. Bambera is expected to be the principal celebrant and homilist.
The Mother’s Day Adoption Mass is open to the public and all faithful are invited to attend.
CTV: Catholic Television of the Diocese of Scranton will broadcast the Mass live. A livestream will also be provided on the Diocese of Scranton website, YouTube channel and across all Diocesan social media platforms.
Pope Francis has said that humanity is “built on mothers” and that their love is a cure for a world, which is so often divided and filled with bitterness.
