(Special Correspondence.) Although the Feast' of Corpus Christi I occurred last week, i Is observance was I generally postponed until .Sunday, few of the faithful beinK able to attend a : t mid-week morning service. In most I 1 ,f the congregations theie is a large i jiroportion of working- people whose I .iniies reouire Ihem to devote their time I every day of 'the week save Sunday. and for the ax-cvjinmodalioii of these the I Sunday scrvic-vs? were decided upon, j The altars wex- everywhere especially I liaiidsome for the occasion. At St. I Elizabeth's the- most solemn services I took place. Solemn hjgh mass was J -.'l"l. rated at 1 ; 3u o'clock by the Rev. j Father Alovsiu. O. F. M. The pastor, I llev. Father J'i us. O. F. M., assisted I a deac-n. and Father Swift, S. J., was sub-deacon. I At Hie close of mass a solemn pro- cession of the Most Klessed Sacrament I look place. The devotion was most in- I spirinpr. the various societies eonnect- ,d with the criurch leading. The g J'nihls of St. JoJm in full dress uni- I form acted as guard of honor, walk- I inp directly before- th:.; priest, who ear- ri-d the Kloss.-d Sacrament, j in the evenini? s- ileum vesper service I took place the full choir chanting-.

I The number of persons who received I holy communion on the feast day was I unprecedented. I i Feast of the Sacred Heart. I Friday of this week is the Feast of jj the Sacred Heart, and judging by the I number of those who went to confes- I sion on Thursday the number of com- . nuniieants will be especially large. On Sunday last in all the churches re- quests were made for floral offerings 1 for the adornment of the altars for the I feast day. In consequence, as early I as Wednesday potted plants had been 1 received which greatly facilitated the I work of preparing the Sacred Heart shrine. I Since the League of the Sacred Heart has grown to such large proportions in I the diocese the. devotions. in honor of I the Sacred Heart have attracted much j more than ordinary attention. The j lirst Friday exercises are always well I attended, and during the month of s June all of the evening devotions mean I the gathering of a good part of the j congregations. Operetta by Children of St. Dominic's 1 Throughout the winter 'season at regular intervals the children of St. I Dominic's parish school have given lit - I lie plays which have proved interest- ing to a wide circle of friends, but the I closing events of the series were the 1 two given this week. On Wednesday I and Thursday evenings the friends of j the children to a number which taxed the ball to its capacity gathered and I watched the production of "The Merry ! Company." which was selected as the dosing bill. The plays this week were J Mitcd by those who saw them the best I of the series and much credit is due the instructors for their careful prop-j I aiation. Besides the plays there were ? musical and literary numbers on the programme. j I Commencement at Immaculate Con- 1 ception School. I Invitations have been issued to the j annual commencement exercises of the j Immaculate Conception school, and be- I tides the relatives and friends of the I members of the class of 1904 all of the ? old pupils have been remembered. The ; center aisles of seats will be reserved lor the latter after the immediate fam- ilies of the participants have been I looked after. As usual, the rule of "no J 1l"Wers'' will lie enforced, there being much objection to the discrimination which necessarily re.-ults from the I practice of allowing the graduates to I accept dowers oser the footlights. This is the seventh annua! commencement I of the school and the members of the 1 class are Ruth Elizabeth Lang, Nora Mary O'Brien. Mary Loretto Mul- 1 money. Dorothea Olive Thurber and j .lane Marie O'Neill. The class colors. .-elected by the girls, .are blue and goid JU'd the class motto is: t "It is well to think well. 5 it i divine to act well." The stage .will be decorated in the f l'i'.k- and gold, and there will be music I ;' the usual high standard of exeel- ; 1 inc.

J The ordination service will be held at Logan Avenue chapel, with which the family of the young man is affiliated. Mr. Hagus is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Hagus of 1C9 Washington Wash-ington avenue, and was "born in Lead-ville. Lead-ville. Colo., twenty-five years ago. He was educated lirst at the Immaculate Conception school, graduating from that institution in the class of lits9, in the first class ever graduated. He then took a postgraduate course at the College Col-lege of the Sacred Heart, in North Denver. From there he went to Baltimore Bal-timore and entered St. Mary's. - During Dur-ing the three years he has spent there li" has achieved no little distinction in his classes. A remarkable feature of the ruling nii.n's senior year is thai .he. through the serious .illness .of., his lather missed over two months' time, which he was obligee to make up before be-fore taking the necessary examinations. Despite the setback he came out with a splendid average, one attained by few who had attended throughout the entire year. He was always a leader lii his classes in Denver, and hia friends here take pride in the distinc tion he has won at Baltimore. The ordination ceremonies will be M lemn and impressive. It is customary custom-ary to have the service take place at i the church of St. Elizabeth or at some church conducted by a religious order, but in this case an exception has been made owing to the urgent request of I the father of the young man, who is a i I prominent member of the cathedral I congregation. The sacrament of holy i orders will be administered by Bishop N. C. Matz. with Rev. P. A. Phillips I as muster of oeremonies. Other priests I of the city will be present in the sanc- tuary. The mass will be a low one with appropriate music by the regular choire. -An informal reception will be held. later in the day, and on Monday Ihe young priest will celebrate his first mass. Invited to this service are all of the old school mates of Mr. Hagus and the family friends. Much interest Is felt in the ordination owing lo the J prominence of the family of the young man. I The annual banquet of the Alumni association of the Immaculate Con-I Con-I ception school will take place on Thurs-i Thurs-i day evening, June 16, and in the morn-i morn-i ing of the same day a business meeting meet-ing will be held, at which all members of the association are expected' to be present. Final arrangements will he made at that time. The banquet will be the most largely attended in the history his-tory of the high school department, and with little formality the five members, mem-bers, comprising the close of 1904, will be admitted. Acceptances have been received from most of the out-of-town members of the association, who will come to Denver for the occasion. Joseph Jo-seph F. Bowler of the class of 1899, and president of the association, was in the city last week and announced his in tention of being present at the reunion. f- Last Sunday low Mass was celebrated at 10:0 o'clock in Logan Avenue chapel, cha-pel, in place of the usual high Mass. Now that the warmer weather is here, it is necessary to shorten the services, and this will be the plan throughout the summer months. There will be no music at the late service. The usual 6::?0 o'clock Mass has been changed for 6 o'clock, to enable those going on one-day one-day excursions to catch' early trains.
