Father Joseph Romanoski wants to take a moment to share with you of his unceasing prayers for all of you and your love ones, today more than ever on the solemnity of Corpus Christi. As we celebrate this great Feast, we pray to our loving Father that His blessing, given with ultimate power in the death and resurrection of His Son, may flow across our Parish and our community.
Today, our Parish affirmed the ancient understanding of the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist, and to demonstrate support and reverence for this reality, we honored the Most Blessed Sacrament by processing Him - to proclaim this truth following the Lord physically even as we pledged anew to do so spiritually. Today, Corpus Christi made every effort to celebrate the sacred mysteries of our faith with dignity and safely, with a sense of responsibility for ourselves and others. Along with songs and prayers to proclaim our faith in Christ, Father Joseph blessed each and every individual, including those participating from home and from their vehicles: https://www.facebook.com/CorpusChristisc/posts/868433380314239
