Corpus Christi Sunday

DSC_8896.jpg

Sunday, June 23, After the 9:30 AM, 11:30 AM and 6:00 PM Masses
This feast was established in 1246, extended to the universal Church by Pope Urban in 1264. On this feast day it is customary after Mass to process “into the world” with the Blessed Sacrament. Many processions wind their ways through city streets, such as Pope Francis did in processing from St Peter’s Square to the streets of Rome. Along the route, four altars are established representing the four corners of the world. Prayers are offered for the world at each stop. The congregation joins the procession and sings along the way.

Next week Our Lady of Grace will experience a Corpus Christi procession, though on a smaller scale! After Masses, we will be having a procession to an outside altar. There will be Exposition, a few minutes of Adoration, reading of Scripture and prayers. Afterwards there will be refreshments on the lawn. Should the weather not cooperate, we will move everything to Cassidy Hall.

We invite all those who recently made their First Communion to come that day dressed in their First Communion clothes and join in the procession! Join us for this special day in our Liturgical Year!
