Eucharistic Blessing

Sunday, June 14, is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ – Corpus Christi.
It has long been a tradition to hold Eucharistic processions on Corpus Christi.

Continuing that tradition, but with a twist for the times, we invite parishioners to participate in a procession of cars to be blessed with the Blessed Sacrament. From 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., cars can enter the school parking lot at the Fourth Street entrance and proceed around to the back of the school building. Set up near the gym doors will be a small altar, on which will be exposed the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance. One of the parish priests will bless each family, (who will remain in their car, to observe distance guidelines. Face masks are also recommended.) After the blessing, cars should proceed around the school building and exit onto Fourth Street.

In these troubled times of pandemic and social unrest, we turn to our Lord really present in the Sacrament of his Body & Blood, to ask his protection for our families, our parish, and our nation. We encourage you to be part of this procession and especially to bring your children to receive this blessing.
