Corpus Christi


A blessed feast day to you all.  One of the greatest days on the Church's calendar, proof of the love and humility of God.

Yes, it is today, as it is every year on the Church's ancient calendar. Yet we all have an opportunity to show our love and devotion to our Eucharistic Lord in processions on Sunday-- the novus ordo feast is deferred to Sunday, and the traditional Mass centers in the Archdiocese both will celebrate an External Solemnity of Corpus Christi, with procession, on Sunday.

St. Francis de Sales Oratory will process with the Eucharist after 10am Solemn High Mass. The procession will traverse Ohio, Sydney, Iowa and Lynch streets, with Benediction.

All Saints in University City will conduct a procession after the 11:30am Mass, and part of this procession will occur down Delmar Avenue in the Loop.  That is an interesting juxtaposition, indeed.

Go to the Oratory, process, then head to U City and process again. And blessings to all who process with Our Lord this weekend.

Just a note - the Mass and procession occurring on Corpus Cristi at All Saints is the temporary location of the Oratory of SS Gregory and Augustine, and as a member I would be so glad if you would refer to it as such. We are not All Saints but renting their space and grateful for their accommodations.
Thank you!

Thanks for helping the Oratory of Ss Gregory and Augustine get the word out. Here is a link to the Facebook event:
