Solemn Mass for Rielo’s anniversary

Archbishop Timothy Dolan will preside over a solemn Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan on Friday, December 4 to honor the fifth anniversary of Fernando Rielo’s entrance into eternal life. All Bronx residents are invited to attend.

Rielo founded the Idente Missionaries. Our Lady of Solace and St. Dominic’s parishioners will attend the Mass.

“His spiritual sons administer three churches: Santa Maria, Our Lady of Solace and St. Dominic’s,” Fr. Robert Badillo of Our Lady of Solace – St. Dominic’s Parish said.

To celebrate Rielo’s accomplishments, Badillo has arranged to transport parishioners, at no cost, to St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

The buses will depart at 5:30 p.m. from three locations: Our Lady of Solace, St. Dominic’s Church, and Santa Maria.

The mass is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., and the buses are expected to return to the Bronx around 9:30 p.m. Call (718) 863-3282 to reserve a seat.
