SOLEMN SUNG VESPERS AND BENEDICTION OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT

St. Joseph Church, celebrates Wonderful Wednesday every Wednesday beginning with Evening Prayer and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament followed by dinner in our social hall. Last March 25, we celebrated Solemn Sung Vespers II and Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament for the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord. This including a Eucharistic Procession around the Church with an honor guard, the singing of Solemn Vespers with the help of our combined choirs, with the choir singing a special "Magnificat." Benediction followed Solemn Sung Vepsers. This was preceded by a festive dinner in the social hall below the Church. This year, but on March 24, we will do the same thing, but with Solemn Evening Prayer I. I hope your churches celebrate all the official Liturgies the Lord has given us!

We have a great Church for such a great Liturgy!

The Lord letting His Face to Shine upon us and bless us!

Father,

I'm sick of you being a show off with pictures regarding your Church. Just stick to words from now on please.

Green with envy? Good!

Yes, we too have a beautifully restored historic church that would be perfect for such great liturgies. Alas, no comparable beautiful liturgies exist for us as the only priest interested in such (FRAJM) left us!
And, yes, I too am green with envy...!
