The Diocese Celebrates Corpus Christi

The Feast of Corpus Christi honors the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist and was celebrated with processions around the diocese.

The Grace of God Made Flesh

Today, we remember the grace of God made flesh – Jesus the Christ – given as gift and food for the journey. The Church remembers with praise, procession and gratitude. However, do we really “get it”? Do we fully realize the impact and response that this bread and wine, this Body and Blood covenant, should have in and on our lives?
