SAINT MARTIN DE PORRES PARISH TO HONOR
THE LIFE AND SERVICE OF OFFICER ROBERT WILSON III



Saint Martin de Porres Parish, which is located in the neighborhood where Philadelphia Police Officer Robert Wilson III was fatally shot in the line of duty, will remember his life and service in prayer.

Sunday, March 8, 2015
10:00 a.m. Mass
Saint Martin de Porres Church
2340 West Lehigh Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19132

The remembrance at the parish is not an official memorial service, but rather a prayerful expression of sympathy for those mourn Officer Wilson’s loss and gratitude for the service of law enforcement officers in the community.

A special collection will be taken during the course of the Mass to benefit Officer Wilson’s children.

 

Editor’s Note: This morning, Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. issued a statement on the death of Officer Wilson. The full text of that statement can be found at http://archphila.org/press releases/pr002526.php.
