St Philip's Day and Corpus Christi

97St Philip's Day and the old Solemnity of Corpus Christi fall on the same day this year - in fact St Philip died the day after Corpus Christi in 1595. We will have some special music at the 12.10pm Mass on Thursday, 26th May in honour of St Philip, but the Mass will not take much longer than usual so people will be able to get back to work.

In the evening we will celebrate the old Solemnity of Corpus Christi at 6pm with a Missa Cantata in the Extraordinary Form followed by a Procession of the Blessed Sacrament in church. The choir will sing the Mass in C Minor by Mozart.Corpus%20Christi%20Main[1]
