It was almost a full church this morning...just a few odd empty spaces here and there. The Mass was Solemn, followed by prayers of Thanksgiving, The Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart, the Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
The church was beautiful and it was very comfortable settling into our new church. The photos above show:
- A vignette from the Mass
- Monsignor Michael Schmitz, Vicar General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, the celebrant, who gave an excellent homily.
- Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament
- Recessional to the choir's rousing "To Jesus Christ Our Sovereign King".
We hope to have a gallery of photos posted soon of the Dedication/Consecration of the church. There are over 700 photos and we need to do a little editing here and there. So, please have a little patience...
