Dear Brothers and Sisters:
I am happy to announce that we will have a Sunday mass in Hungarian on Sunday, June 18, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. The service will be at 11:00 AM at the Chapel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which is in the Crypt Church of the Basilica, in the temple's lower level. The Chapel of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is to the left side, when one looks towards the main altar of the Crypt Church. In the plan of the Basilica's lower level, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel is numbered 35. Franciscan friar Father Ágoston will officiate the mass. I encourage all to come and partake with fellow Hungarians in the Holy Communion, and to enjoy as well the spiritual and inspirational sermon of Father Ágoston in the mother's language. It promises to be a beautiful service, as before.
Here I include a link of the Basilica's website:
