Corpus Christi and priestly ordinations fill the bulk of upcoming June events.
Join us for our Corpus Christi Celebrations through the month of June and July.
This feast honors Jesus Christ, truly and substantially Present under the appearances of bread and wine. This Presence happens through the change which the Church calls transubstantiation (“change of substance”), when at the Consecration of the Mass, the priest says the words which Christ Himself pronounced over bread and wine, “This is My Body,” “This is the chalice of My Blood,” “Do this in remembrance of Me.”
Why is Corpus Christi Important?
Corpus Christi means “Body of Christ.” It witness to the Catholic belief in the Eucharist. Catholics believe Chrsit is truly present, body, soul and divinity in the bread and wine at Mass. We believe Christ gave the Apostles and every priest after this the power to change bread and wine into Christ’s body and blood.
