Mass of Remembrance October 1 | 8:30 AM
One of the deepest pains a parent can experience is the tragic loss of a child. Whatever the reason may be (a miscarriage, induction, being stillborn, an abortion or any early childhood death), we are left with the difficulty of trying to understand the reason why. In addition to the parents, this is also shared by the rest of the family and close friends alike. You are invited to attend Corpus Christi 4th Annual Mass of Remembrance on Saturday, October 1, at 8:30 a.m. For those who have experienced the loss of a child, it is a means to help in the healing process, and for others it is a chance to show both physical and spiritual support. There will be a Holy Rosary service following the Mass and a reception in the Parish Hall building immediately after.
Life Chain October 2 | 2:00 - 3:00 PM
Are you willing to be a visible witness against the killing of unborn children? If so, please join our Annual Life Chain along with thousands nationwide to prayerfully stand before God and on behalf of the unborn children on Sunday, October 2, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The recent ruling on Roe v Wade has enraged the pro-abortion people to now attempt to pass a Federal law to achieve abortion on demand. This is our opportunity to actually visually demonstrate our view against abortion.
Our Life Chain will form in front of the Parish campus extending along Augusta Highway. If you are not able to stand with us outside, please come and pray inside the church building. We will pass out signs and give instructions at 1:45 p.m.
