Santa Clara University President Kevin O’Brien Will Say Mass for Biden and Congressmembers Today in DC

By Robert Haugh

Before he is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden will attend a mass officiated by Santa Clara University President Fr. Kevin O’Brien, S.J.

It will be held at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle near the White House at 9:45 a.m ET according to a University source.

According to an AP story, Biden quietly invited Congressional leaders to the mass.  

Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and Republicans Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy all have agreed to attend the mass. They will not go to Andrews Air Force Base to see President Donald Trump’s ceremonial departure for Florida.

  1. Canon law states that a person who obstinately perseveres in a manifest grave sin,as Joe Biden does in using his clout to fund and support abortion,is not to be administered Holy Communion. Was this followed at the inaugural Mass or did your lack of courage allow the darkness to continue.

    • I find it interesting that a Catholic priest supports a politician who supports Abortion. I’d like to hear is response to this.

  2. As a Catholic…When I became Catholic in 2001….I took a oath to protect life .President Biden needs to do the same…Go back to his teaching as a Catholic child….

  3. As a grandparent of two Santa Clara students iam SO proud that Fr OBrien had the Mass for Joseph Biden – GO BRONCOS
