Forty Hours at St John Cantius

These photos were taken at the Opening Mass of Forty Hours Devotion at St John Cantius, Chicago on October 19, 2014. A Solemn High Tridentine Latin Mass with the Resurrection Choir and Orchestra singing Hadyn’s “Theresienmesse” - Mass No. 12 in B Flat was offered. The Mass, which was the External Solemnity of Saint John Cantius, was celebrated by the Rev. C. Frank Phillips, C.R. The Mass was followed by a solemn procession with the Blessed Sacrament around the inside of the Church. Members of the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament, as well as various religious attended.

There are many more wonderful photographs here. St John Cantius also featured in Open House Chicago when they opened their doors to hundreds of first-time visitors to Chicago's most beautiful church.
