Two Corpus Christi Processions at Old St. Patrick this year!

There is a unique opportunity for Catholics this year at Old St. Patrick...TWO Corpus Christi processions. The first is:

Thursday - June 3rd
The Feast of Corpus Christi
High Mass - 6:30 p.m. with a special guest choir
Followed by a procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament

The second is:

Sunday - June 6th
The External Solemnity of the Feast of Corpus Christi
Adoration and Holy Hour - 1:00 p.m.
Procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament - 2:30 p.m.
His Excellency Bishop Robert W. Finn

The Latin Mass community of Old St. Patrick and formerly of Our Lady of Sorrows parish have always done well celebrating this most beautiful ceremony. In 2005, Bishop Finn led the first Corpus Christi procession in over four decades in this diocese down the streets of midtown Kansas City. Over 2,000 faithful participated, with much assistance by members of the OSP faithful, including taking part in the planning, providing servers and canopy carriers. (Photos are from the blogger's archive.)
In 2006, shortly after Bishop Finn announced the formation of the parish of Old Saint Patrick, we held our procession on a beautiful Sunday morning around the Our Lady of Sorrows church property. Our first rector, Father Denis Buchholz led the procession to a special altar erected in the back parking lot of the church.

The Holy See visits our blog!

We just started posting again to this blog a couple of days ago...and among our first visitors is some computer at the Holy See searching for an image of Monsignor Michael Schmitz the U.S. Provincial Superior of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. We welcome whoever it was looking. We have posted several very nice photos of Monsignor over the last couple of years. We're pleased the Vatican came looking.

Another SCARY invasion of our privacy disclosed!

A Sunny last...greeted us on Pentecost

We've been preparing for our move for over 2 months... boxing... packing... pain... ache... etc. At last, the time neared for the actual move and the skies opened for about a week of steady rain. On our moving day there was a break in the moisture and we successfully loaded and unloaded the truck without a drop falling. So we're in our new condo in the south Plaza/Brookside area. It's a mess of course! But, habitable. This morning early, we looked out the window of our 5th floor and to our surprise there was blue skies and fluffy clouds in the morning sky. Alleluia! The descent of the Holy Ghost is celebrated with a glorious day in our new surroundings.

Two former Old St. Patrick members take final vows

In this photo, courtesy of Kansas Catholic, two former members of the Old St. Patrick community are shown leaving the Oratory at the end of the four hour ceremony on May 15, 2010 in which Bishop Finn presided over their perpetual profession of vows and their espousal to Jesus Christ. The sisters, members of the order of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles shown are (in the front) Sister Gemma of Jesus, daughter of David and Kathy Wilson and in the second row to the left, Sister Tarcisia of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, daughter of Paul and Felicia Villotti. Bishop Finn is shown overlooking the recessional in the back row to the right.

May perpetual light shine upon him
