About The Event

Father Whelan served as pastor of the Church of the Purification and the surrounding area for almost 20 years, enduring much hardship to minister to his flock in what was then a vast wilderness.

Father Whelan also brought comfort to the soldiers of Andersonville Prison during the Civil War and was known as the Angel of Andersonville.

We hope you can join us for this special celebration of our forefather in faith.

To ensure the safety of all participants, Mass attendance will be limited to those who have registered. Please register for each member of your family or group. An optional box lunch can be purchased for $10.
