A WYD Mass in Metro Detroit at Sts Cyril & Methodius - tonite!

I just learned about a Mass that will take place this evening at Sts Cyril & Methodius at the same time that the Holy Father is celebrating downunder. Read on....

World Youth Day Solidarity Mass & Adoration July 19. All youth, young adults, families, and those who are young in spirit are welcome to a special Mass and celebration of World Youth Day (in Sydney, Australia) on July 19th at Ss. Cyril & Methodius. The event at our parish will be taking place while the pilgrims in Sydney are celebrating Mass with Pope Benedict! The evening will begin with a gathering at 7:30PM, followed by Holy Mass, with Fr. Ben as the main celebrant, and concluding with a time of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The evening will end around 10:00PM. (This Holy Mass counts for the Sunday obligation.)

Edit at 10:03am: I am told that Fr. Ben, the pastor, has encouraged youth to bring a flag which represents their country of origin. The theme is one of unity.

Te Deum Laudamus! Home

The obedient are not held captive by Holy Mother Church; it is the disobedient who are held captive by the world!
