You are loved by Him, no matter who you are…

“You are welcome here. Wherever you are on your journey.” Msgr. Walter Orlowski, VF, KCHS,  Pastor and Dean.




Sunday June 3, 3pm
Led by Bishop Frank J. Caggiano
Please join us as we witness our faith in the Eucharistic Lord on the Feast of Corpus Christi.

A Eucharistic Procession is one form of Eucharistic
adoration that has a long history in the Church. In this
type of procession, the Holy Eucharist, contained inside a
monstrance, is carried by a priest through a set route while
Eucharistic Hymns are sung.

Through processions we are reminded that our stay on earth is a journey
and that our final destination is eternal life with God in heaven.
Processions make us recall other journeys we take on earth: from sin to
grace, doubt to faith, death to new life.
