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.
