Festivity of the 50th anniversary of the Velehrad Center
On Friday 28. 9. 2018 we commemorated the 50th anniversary of founding of the Czech Religious Center Velehrad in Rome with the celebration of the Holy Mass in St. Peter´s Basilica. The Holy Mass was celebrated by President of CRCV Mons. Jan Vokál, bishop of diocese of Hradec Králové. Before the celebration of the Holy Mass Mons. Vokál blessed a memorial plaque in the crypt of Basilica in place where, for some decade, were lying the remains of Card. Beran. In the end of the Holy Mass followed the prayer at the altar dedicated to St. Wenceslas. The prayer was ended by St. Wenceslas chant and by the Czech national anthem.
The Holy Mass was followed with hospitality at Center Velehrad on Via delle Fornaci 200. It began with common prayer and blessing by Mons. Vokál and continued with friendly talks at prepared snacks.
