    It is excellent news to hear about their Corpus Christi procession, but I can’t help but contrast it to the sad news from Mission San Juan Bautista’s Latin Mass community in California – this will be our last Corpus Christ procession there, and our last Mass this Sunday, after 3 solid years of High Mass every Sunday with attendance anywhere from 125-300 people, and all of the Sacraments, including Confirmation this last Fall. We have been asked to leave for reasons rather unclear. Please pray for us.

    The St Louis Archdiocese is holding a Eucharistic Congress this weekend, with Card. Burke celebrating 10 am Sunday mass. Abp. Carlson will preside at a Sunday evening Mass & Eucharistic procession to follow. All info can be found here:

    After 93 years, Corpus Christi procession to take place in St. Petersburg, Russia
    Rome, Italy, June 23 (CNA) .- The mayor of St. Petersburg, Russia has granted permission for the first Corpus Christi procession to take place in the city since 1918.

    The announcement was confirmed by the Archdiocese of the Mother of God in Moscow, reported Vatican Radio. The procession will take place on Sunday, June 26, through the Prospettiva Nevsky Avenue, the city’s main street.

    The avenue has traditionally been called the “way of confessional tolerance,” as it is lined with Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran and Armenian churches. According to archdiocesan officials, the last time a Corpus Christ procession took place on the avenue was in 1918.

    Now, 93 years later, Catholics will return to the Prospettiva Nevsky Avenue led by Archbishop Paolo Pezzi of Moscow.

    It might be noted that this year’s procession in St Petersburg will be only the second in history. The one in 1918 was the first!
