The Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ – Sunday, June 6, 2021

Bulletin Announcements are due to the Parish office before 11:00 a.m. on the Monday before publication. Please call the parish office to submit an announcement.


In your prayers kindly remember the sick and those who care for them, the lonely, the handicapped, those isolated, and those who have died.

INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY – Theme: Covenant Making The Mass is both sacrifice and banquet. The celebration of Corpus Christ this year views the eucharist in terms of covenant, with the special emphasis on its sacrificial character. In the reading from Exodus, the covenant between Yahweh and his people is formally concluded with sacrifice and bonding blood ritual. Mark’s gospel today finds Jesus in the upper room celebrating his final Passover with the disciples. In memorializing the new covenant in ritual, his words over the cup are distinct echo of those of Moses in finalizing the Sinai covenant. In the reading from Hebrews, Christ is high priest and mediator of the new covenant. In his own blood, he has cleansed our conscience and given us access to God.

A NOTE FROM THE RECTOR – Fr. Jim will continue with weekend and daily masses and since only 10 people can be present in the church for mass including the priest, parishioners may stay in their cars in the church parking lot and tune in at 88.1 radio station and Fr. Jim will gladly come out and give communion as you stay in the comfort of your car.

Pope’s Prayer Intention for June: Intention for evangelization – The beauty of marriage.  Let us pray for young people who are preparing for marriage with the support of a Christian community: may they grow in love, with generosity, faithfulness and patience.
