Corpus Christi 2024


I invite you to join us for our second annual Eucharistic Procession for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi this Sunday, June 2, at the end of our final Sunday Mass (11am) around our property and parking lot

 

At the end of the 11 am Mass, ministers will lead the procession outside, from the church, with our processional cross, candle torches, and incense, while others carry a special canopy made to create a sacred space for the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance throughout the procession.

 

The children who will receive their First Communion at the 11 am Mass will also participate in the procession carrying beautiful banners and ringing bells and strewing flower petals before Jesus in the monstrance to proclaim him as our King!

 

At the entrances of the church in each direction, we will have a small table altar set up as a station where we shall have a short time of song and prayer and then continue walking until we’ve gone around the building. In the bulletin or separately, we've created a program to bring with you to follow and sing the hymns! Additional programs will be handed out to those without a printed bulletin as the procession leaves the church.

 

We will end our Eucharistic Procession with Benediction and Divine Praises where we began, in the church.

 

Following this, we will have a time of food, fellowship, and refreshments in the hall to celebrate the occasion! 

 

If you attended another Mass this weekend, please come back for the end of the 11 am Mass around 11:55 or so to take part in the procession! Everyone is welcome!

 

Why should a parish community have a Eucharistic Procession?

 

  • To publicly proclaim our belief in Jesus’ True Presence in the Eucharist.

  • By this public witness of faith, the parish invites people in the community to encounter the Risen Lord present in the Eucharistic Host.

  • It is an opportunity not only to proclaim our faith but also to grow in faith.

  • The procession is an invitation to Jesus himself to be a part of our daily lives, to be immersed in the world in which we live.


May the Body and Blood of Christ keep us safe for eternal life.

Fr. Brian Trueman
