Solemnity of Corpus Christi
Corpus Christi is traditionally celebrated with a grand procession.
This year on June 23, the Church of Saint Vincent de Paul decided to conduct the procession for the first time around the church compound as there was a desire between the priests to bring this tradition back.
Said Father John Joseph Fenelon, Assistant Parish Priest, “Public reverence and homage to the Body and Blood of Christ is a form of evangelisation” and an evangelistic spirit is what we are actively trying to inculcate within our parish.
The procession helped parishioners, who thronged the compound, to meditate on the gift of the Eucharist and the real presence of the Christ in the Blessed sacrament.
They were also able to reflect on whether they truly believe Jesus to be present in the Consecrated Host.
(A night for young people)
The Youth of SVDP gathered as ONE at our first “Disciples Assemble” event for a time of Praise and Worship, spiritual input by Father JJ and Eucharistic Adoration. It was a truly blessed night with our youth proclaiming their desire to claim the intimate love that Jesus lavishes on us, to see him knocking at the door of our hearts, eager to simply sit and dine with us.
Disciples Assemble will be held next on:
Date: 17th August
Time: 7pm- 10pm
Venue: Church or St. Vincent de Paul (Room 03-02)
ALL YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULTS ARE WELCOME!
Let us continue together, drawing strength from one another, to grow in holiness and to live a life a joy and peace promised to us by our heavenly Father!
