V. Rev. Patrick Woods, C.Ss.R. presents Brother Stephen Lendvay, C.Ss.R. Director of the Perpetual Help Center, with a tapestry of the icon.

The V. Rev. Patrick Woods, C.Ss.R., Provincial Superior, presented Brother Stephen Lendvay, C.Ss.R., with an Our Lady of Perpetual Help tapestry to commemorate his 24 years of dedicated work as the Director of the Perpetual Help Center, Bronx, NY. Through Brother Steve’s ministry of "making her known," mission kits have been sent all over the world, and countless people have come to know Mary under this wonderful title. Engraved in the bronze plaque attached to the tapestry were the words:

"Mary said, ’Do whatever he says.’"
– John 2:5
With the gratitude of countless people and the confreres of the Baltimore Province for "Making Her Known"
