Corpus Christi Procession, Summer Mass Schedule, &c.

On Sunday, May 29, the External Solemnity of Corpus Christi, there will be a procession of the Blessed Sacrament, including the faithful, following the 11:00 High Mass. Following the procession, we will immediately celebrate Benediction and Reposition of the Blessed Sacrament. There will not be a longer period of adoration that day.

  • All Wednesday Masses are moved to 9:00 AM, until September 7.
  • On First Fridays, June through August, there will be no exposition of the Blessed Sacrament following the 7:00 PM Mass.  The various Sacred Heart prayers will still be said after Mass.
