Solemnity of Corpus Christi

Solemnity of Corpus Christi

Dear parishioners,

Good morning! I am sending this weekly update very early because of its importance and I do not want it to be buried in the busyness of this day.

This Sunday is the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, a very important celebration of the Lord’s Day where we acknowledge and celebrate the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Also, this Sunday marks the beginning of the Eucharistic Revival and its year-long focus at the parish level. Here are a few things that you are invited to participate in…

    • first and most important, be present and active participate at the Mass of the Lord’s Day: Saturday at 4:30 pm and Sunday at 8:30 and 10:30 am,
    • do read the Eucharistic Revival playbook and familiarize yourselves with its four goals. Think about how we may promote and achieve these goals at Saint Patrick’s. I invite you share with us your ideas by writing them on the white board in the Alcove. Take note of the four displays that correspond to the four goals.
    • after the 10:30 am Sunday Mass, join in the Eucharistic Procession around the block.

Also, I would like to express my gratitude to parishioners who responded to the invitation to serve through the Pastoral Council, the Baptism Prep Team, and the Parish Gardens. We need new stewards and you stepped forward. You are a blessing to our parish.

Our four-year old’s celebrated their Stepping Up Day last Thursday. It was good to see their faces, as those of their parents, grandparents, and siblings, beaming with joy. Thank you, Mrs. Everett and Mrs. Honecker for your dedication and guidance. Thank you, families, for entrusting us your children.

God bless you all!

See you in Church, People of God!
