Sunday, June 18
Sunday, June 18th is the Feast of Corpus Christi, the annual celebration of Jesus’ great gift of
His Body and Blood. It reminds us to stop and thank Him for his real presence in the Eucharist by
Procession and Adoration.
On Corpus Christi Sunday, at the conclusion of the 12:00 noon Mass at Immaculate Conception, we will have
a procession with the Eucharist through the Church and out onto the grounds to bless the community.
We will have three Altars decorated outside by three of our Parish Committees where prayers and Benediction
will take place. We will then return to the Church for a final Benediction inside.
