  1. Mary Anne says:

    Near Queens Theatre in the park is the spot where Our Lady appeared to Veronica Leuken in the mid 60s to 80s approximately. The people still hold prayer vigils there on the eve before Catholic Feast Days. Her title was given as Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers. Several websites give more information. Bishop did not approve. Regardless, my heart still goes back there often.
