In the Traditional Latin Mass calendar, the Feast of the Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ is celebrated on the last Sunday in October, which happens to be the 25th this year. The feast was initially instituted by Pope Pius XI in 1925 with the encyclical Quas Primas.
Christ the King Procession from St. Mary Church, 613 Cherry St. downtown Evansville.
After the celebration of the Latin Mass at 12 noon on October 25, There will be a procession with the Blessed Sacrament through parts of our beloved city in order to give glory to Our Lord and King and to bring Him to our neighbor.
Speaking explicitly about such a procession, Pope Pius XI in the abovementioned encyclical states:“It is by a divine inspiration that the people of Christ bring forth Jesus from his silent hiding-place in the Church, and carry him in triumph through the streets of the city, so that he whom men refused to receive when he came unto his own, may now receive in full his kingly rights.” (Paragraph 26)
Therefore, all are invited to attend both Holy Mass and the procession which will follow directly afterwards. When we return to the Church, there will be a short period of Adoration followed by Benediction.
Social distancing and Masks are required in church and for the procession.
