The Visitation Nuns at 5820 City Ave. (Between 59thStreet and Cardinal Avenue),cordially invite you to their annual Sacred Heart Novena of Masses at 7:30 pm from Thursday, June 3rd through Friday, June 11th, 2010, the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart. Rev. Nicholas Waselin,OFFS, will conduct the novena. Since it was a Visitation Nun, St. Margaret Mary Alaoque, who received the Great Revelations of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,Visitation Nuns throughout the world honor the Heart of Christ in a special manner, particularly by an annual public novena.
CORPUS CHRISTI SUNDAY
St. Paul Parish at 10th and Christian Streets Philadelphia will offer Mass in the Extraordinary Form on Sunday, June 6th at 12 Noon, followed by a Eucharistic Procession in the streets outside church, with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament immediate after the procession. If you haven't been to a Traditional Latin Mass, won't you consider coming this Sunday to experience what has been described as the closest thing to Heaven on earth?
St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church at 9th and Watkins Street will hold its annual Corpus Christi Procession following the 11am Mass. The Most Blessed Sacrament will be carried through the streets of South Philadelphia in a Eucharistic Procession which will end with Benediction at Epiphany of Our Lord Church at 11th and Jackson Streets. Several stops will be made along the way for Benediction and prayers as well. This is a beautiful way to give witness to our faith and make known our dedication to the Eucharist, which is the Source and Summit of Life in the Catholic Church.
