A special Invitation in honor of our Founder, Pete Bossow Jr. and all FPS Travelers
Prior to the walk, we will celebrate a special optional Palm Sunday Mass in memory of many FPS Travelers and our Founder, Pete Bossow Jr., at Citizens Bank Park. Monsignor Mike Manion, who said Pete’s funeral Mass nearly 20 years ago, will be the main celebrant for this Mass prior to our walk festivities. We invite people of all faiths to join us as we come together in thanksgiving and hope for all of our FPS families. Mass begins promptly at 7:45 AM, you will be given directions as to where to sit in the stadium.
