Corpus Christi, Helpers Vigil, and Recent Posts

Sunday: Corpus Christi at Assumption Grotto

This video above was made ahead of last year's Corpus Christi, so the date at the end is no longer valid. Assumption Grotto will hold it's annual Corpus Christi Procession following the Noon orchestral Mass this Sunday. An Italian dinner will be available afterwards in the school gym for a free-will offering.

Saturday: Helpers of God's Precious Infants Vigil

Also, this Saturday is the Helper's of God's Precious Infants Prayer Vigil. See more in this post: Detroit - Helpers Prayer Vigil with Msgr. Philip J. Reilly - founder of Helpers of God's Precious Infants. I have heard Monsignor Reilly speak and if you have ever been hesitant to do pro-life work, you will want to hear this priest speak. It has been several years since he has been to Detroit, so now is the time to attend. Teresa Tomeo interviewed Monsignor Reilly just yesterday and you can listen to the archived audio at Ave Maria Radio.

Tomorrow: Passio Domini at Grotto

This is also a good time to remind local readers about the Thursday night Passio Domini at Assumption Grotto which begins with Holy Mass at 7:00pm, and follows with Exposition, meditations and Rosary until 9:00pm. It is not a time that we look for something from God - like good feelings and consolations, but a time that we give ourselves entirely to God, for his sake, while meditating on his passion.

Today: Abp Carlson's Installation in St. Louis

One final note: Bishop Carlson, formerly of nearby Saginaw, is being installed this morning as the new Archbishop of St. Louis. The Archdiocese of St. Louis will be twittering, and is providing a live feed online of the installation (go to the diocesn website and scroll down for links to live video feed). I understand it will be broadcast on EWTN, as well. Tom Peters, the American Papist, is also Twittering from St. Louis during the installation.
