On the 21st of November2021, the last Sunday of the Liturgical Year, the FCC Frankfurt together with the Communities of Bad Homburg, Wetzlar & Wiesbaden celebrated the feast of our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the universe at the St. Ignatius Church in Frankfurt. The celebration started with a short Catechism of Father Francis Ofrancia, Chaplain of the FCC in the Diocese of Limburg. In his talk, he explained the historical background, meaning, & reason why we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. After the Catechism was the Community Prayer and the Adoration for the Solemnity of Christ the King. The Eucharistic Celebration followed with the Eucharistic Adoration & Procession.
