By Anne Neville | News Staff Reporter | The Mass Mob that descended on Corpus Christi Catholic Church on the East Side on Sunday morning brought about 400 people, ranging from snoozing newborns to devout 90-year-olds, to the majestic, historic Polish parish.
People who had never set foot inside the soaring, twin-spire Romanesque stone church sat in the polished wooden pews, gazing up at the vaulted ceiling, jewel-like stained-glass windows, twinkling lights on the arches, and detailed mural over the altar that depicts theologians discussing the mysteries of the Eucharist.
Parishioners, including many who have belonged to Corpus Christi for their entire lives, smiled as they scanned the church, which usually draws fewer than 100 people for this Sunday Mass. Even without the Mass Mob, this festive day included special devotions to Our Lady of Czestochowa, a beloved Polish icon, depicted at a side altar in a painting that was blessed by Pope John Paul II and installed in 2004.
Thank you to everyone who came out to Corpus Christi Church on Sunday to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Częstochowa. The Mass was beautiful and we appreciate the support from the community.
