Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus - Corpus Christi

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ - Corpus Christi

"Besides physical hunger, people have another hunger, one that cannot be satisfied with ordinary food. It is the hunger for life, hunger for love (and) hunger for eternity. The body and blood of Christ can give people eternal life because the substance of this bread is love. Living the Catholic faith, means allowing yourself to be nourished by the Lord and building your life not on material goods, but on the reality that does not perish: the gifts of God, His Word, and His Body."  Pope Francis

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is historically known by its Latin name, Corpus Christi. This day is a celebration of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist—Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. Traditionally celebrated on the Thursday following the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity, the feast dates to 1263 AD with a visionary nun and a Eucharistic miracle. Read the full story...

Our celebration will include a Procession and prayer after the 12:30 Mass at approximately 1:45 pm on June 23rd.
