The Marian pilgrims of the diocese, who have been traveling to Washington’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception every two years, stayed closer to home Oct. 22 by taking a faith journey to New Castle.

MAGNOLIA – During a Mass Monday to mark the dedication of the gymnasium at St. Thomas More Preparatory, Father James Lentini took a minute to tell the students, teachers and others in attendance a short story.

In New York City, where he grew up, officials officially changed the name of Sixth Avenue to Avenue of the Americas in the 1940s, but New Yorkers never called it that. To them, it was always Sixth Avenue and remains so to this day.

Joe Szczerba had a plan when he went to work Sept. 15, said Oblate Father John Fisher. On his way home, he would stop at his brother Ed’s house and finalize where everyone would park two days later at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia, where Ed’s son, Andrew, would play football for Penn State against Temple.

Andrew Szczerba caught two passes that day for the Nittany Lions, but his uncle was not there to see him. In fact, Andrew played with a heavy heart after learning early the morning of Sept. 16 that his uncle, New Castle County Police Lt. Joseph Szczerba, 44, was killed after being stabbed in the neck during an altercation in Penn Acres, a neighborhood in Wilmington Manor. He was treated on the scene by fellow officers and emergency personnel but was pronounced dead after being transported to Christiana Hospital.
