The Adoration

07th June 2013

Last Sunday millions of people around the world took part in an hour of  Eucharistic Adoration on the feast of Corpus Christi.   Led by Pope Francis Catholic faithful throughout the world took part in their own Cathedrals and churches, and followed the event on television, radio, and the internet.
                   The Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) also worked to ensure seafarers were able to be a part of this historic event.  In the port of Immingham, Great Britain, for example, port chaplain Fr Colum Kelly led Eucharistic Adoration in the chapel of the seafarers’ centre .
              Fr Kelly said, ‘I was very moved that some seafarers visiting the seafarers’ centre, who were only ashore for a few hours, joined our Eucharistic Adoration.  It was especially poignant, that seafarers were part of this, given that one of the intentions of Pope Francis was for ‘those who experience marginalization’.
