Father Michael G. Taylor, pastor, celebrated an outdoor Mass Nov. 9 at the recently cleared site of the new Corpus Christi Catholic Church in South Riding.  The Mass was celebrated on the future spot of the church’s altar. One of the many large rocks that had been dug up during the clearing was used as a place marker and centerpiece for the makeshift altar.

Nearly 300 parishioners braved cold, windy conditions for Mass.

The area of the altar had been raised in a stepped fashion to emulate the final raised position of the sanctuary. The area of the nave was also hard packed and flattened with stakes laid out to mark the boundaries of the actual walls of the future 1,200-seat church. Placards were also placed on the grounds indicating the locations of where the rectory, parish hall, school and gym will be located.
