Father Rudolph Gonzalez, pastor of St. Margaret Mary parish, South Bronx incenses a statue of Our Lady of the Divine Providence during a ceremony at the church Nov. 19. The statue of the patroness of Puerto Rico arrived from St. Patrick’s Cathedral the same day and will remain at St. Margaret Mary throughout the parish’s yearlong period of prayer for the needs of the people of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Many parishioners are from Puerto Rico and have family there.
