Parishioners offer Pope Benedict messages of support

Posted: Updated:
HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

As Pope Benedict's final day as Pontiff draws nearer, local parishioners offered their support.

Dozens of members of Saint Catherine Laboure Catholic Church in Swatara Township signed huge scrolls on Saturday and Sunday.

The messages offered greetings, support and prayers to Pope Benedict, who announced his resignation in two weeks earlier and will step down on Thursday.

The parish will send the scrolls to the Vatican.

Saint Catherine Laboure is offering special masses on Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m. and Thursday morning at 9 a.m.
