Sunday, June 23 – Eucharistic Procession for the Solemnity of Corpus Christi

The Solemnity of Corpus Christi will take place next weekend June 22- 23 2019.
On June 23 following immediately after 11 00 am Mass at Our Lady of the Assumption, there will be an Eucharistic Procession in the surrounding neighbourhood The procession will leave from the church, and return to the church so we can share a BBQ lunch.

THIS IS AN ACTIVITY FOR THE WHOLE PARISH COMMUNITY!!

The Knights of Columbus are hosting the annual BBQ at Our Lady of the Assumption after the conclusion of the Eucharistic Procession. The Knights will gladly accept a free will offering to contribute to the cost of providing lunch.

The Eucharist – Jesus Christ sharing his complete self with us is the source and summit of the whole Christian life The feast of Corpus Christi (or the Most Holy Body Blood of Christ) is a celebration of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist, as He gave himself to us beginning at the Last Supper This feast parallels the celebration on Holy Thursday in commemoration of the institution of this Sacrament When the Eucharist is carried through the streets in solemn procession, the Christian people are given a chance to publicly declare their faith and devotion to Jesus who we follow along the road of life, and into the world we live in It is also a chance for the community surrounding us to encounter God in a profound, beautiful, and meaningful way.
