If you are within striking distance of Manhattan, consider attending the beautiful Corpus Christi procession which the vibrant, famed, phoenix-like Church of the Holy Innocents will have on 26 May, Corpus Christi THURSDAY.
Mass is at 6 PM follow by the procession, which goes outside in midtown Manhattan, down Broadway and Herald Square, past Macy’s…
It is an extraordinary experience. One year I was celebrant and I carried the Blessed Sacrament.
DATE: Thursday, May 26, 2016
TIME: Mass & Procession at 6:00 PM, followed by a festive reception
LOCATION: Church of the Holy Innocents, New York, NY (128 West 37th Street – btwn Broadway and 7th)
Before the 6 PM Solemn Mass, the parishioners will recite the Holy Rosary at 5:20 PM. The Choirmaster and organist, Mr. Pedro d’Aquino, will direct the music (Messa a tre voci by Saverio Mercadante, 1795-1870). After the Mass and the outdoors procession, there will be a festive reception in the parish hall.
We need less chatter and more processions!
