2012 Mass of the Holy Spirit

In keeping with tradition, the Catholic University community filled the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit as a new academic year begins. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, archbishop of Washington and chancellor of the University, was the principal celebrant and homilist at the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit on Aug. 30. Archbishop Carlo Maria ViganĂ², the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, was a special guest at the Mass. A picnic on the University Mall followed the Mass. (Photos by Ed Pfueller)
