*** EVENT: Corpus Christi @ S. Magnus UPDATED***
Well it certainly has been a while since I've logged into the old Ex Fide. With profuse apologies I must explain myself: I've taken on a new job which leaves far less time to plan and write blog posts. I'm also reluctant to spend my evenings and weekends waiting for blogger to load my photos up.
Anyway, I have the great joy of announcing an upcoming event at S. Magnus (we've been having many recently, and wonderful they've been). This year we are keeping the Feast of Corpus Christi "on the day" as it were, and celebrating it with High Mass and Procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament at 6.30pm on June 3rd. I understand that this might clash with other regular Corpus Christi celebrations, perhaps your parish church, or some shrine that you visit regularly. However, I must urge you to consider S. Magnus this year. In the past (especially due to our location in the city) we have not always been able to summon servers and faithful on a weekday evening. However, as a confident, growing congregation, we now have the resources to offer the rites of the Feast on the Thursday. We're hoping for brilliant weather as we walk with Our Lord through the historic streets of the City, and we cordially invite you to join us in our celebrations.
