Cardinal Rigali to Lead Corpus Christi Mass
First Communicants to join Cardinal in Outdoor Procession
at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa

Cardinal Justin Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia, will be the celebrant and homilist at a Mass for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. In a personal letter, Cardinal Rigali invited children from parishes in the Archdiocese who received their First Communion this year to join him in the Eucharistic Procession. The children have been asked to dress in their First Communion clothes - girls in white dresses and veils and boys in suits. The Procession will take place at the end of Mass.

Sunday, June 6, 2010
2:00 p.m. Mass
2:45 p.m. Procession (approximately)
National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa
Ferry Road, Doylestown, PA 18901

Weather permitting, the Procession following Mass will be a half mile prayerful walk held on the grounds of the Shrine.
