Catholic Church to Kick Off National Migration Week With Prayer

ST. LOUIS - This coming Epiphany Sunday, January 4, at 10:00am, St. Pius V Parish will celebrate their Annual Migration Mass. The Migration Mass is a yearly celebration of the unity and diversity of the parish family and the larger Catholic family.National Migration Week 2015 takes place January 4 – 10 with the theme, "We are One Family Under God," bringing to mind the importance of family in our daily lives. This reminder is particularly important when dealing with the migration phenomenon, as family members are too often separated from one another. 

At this special Mass, St. Pius V will welcome worshippers from all over the world. The readings and prayers will be offered in various languages, an African choir and a Burmese choir will be featured, and many participants will wear their traditional dress from their homeland. An international buffet featuring foods from different countries follows the Migration Mass in Singler Hall, the parish gathering space. The Migration Mass is the premier annual event at St. Pius V Parish, the most diverse in the Archdiocese, and is always standing room only.

The Immigrant & Refugee Ministry at St. Pius V Parish is supported by a grant from the Annual Catholic Appeal. St. Pius V Catholic Church is located at 3310 S. Grand Blvd. St. Louis, MO 63118-1002.

St. Louis, MO – As part of Holy Week Archbishop Robert J. Carlson, as well as more than 150 local priests, will celebrate the Chrism Mass at the Cathedral Basilica. The Chrism Mass derives its name from one of the three oils which are presented to the Archbishop to be blessed and consecrated for use at baptisms, confirmations, and ordinations throughout the year. During the Easter Season, more than 2,000 young men and women will be confirmed in the Catholic faith.

In addition, the priests will renew their commitment to their priestly ministry, helping them call to mind their vocation, and inspiring them to rededicate their lives to Christ.  Also, hundreds of local Catholic school students who will be confirmed during the Easter season will attend the Mass to witness the blessing of the oil of chrism, which will be used in their own Confirmations.                   

 Catholics around the world celebrate Holy Week, which opens with the celebration of Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The week continues with the commemoration of the Last Supper, His passion, and His death, and culminates in the joy of His resurrection.
