Our Lady of Peace Parish in Geneva was one of several parishes that celebrated a Mass in honor of Our Lady of Providencia, the patroness of Puerto Rico.
 
Our Lady of Peace parishioners honored Our Lady of Providencia on her Nov. 19 feast day during the Sunday liturgy at St. Francis de Sales Church. A statue was carried by parishioners during the entrance procession.
 
Masses also were celebrated Nov. 20 at Holy Apostles Church in Rochester and Nov. 22 at St. Michael Church in Newark.
