Corpus Christi Procession

Corpus Christi Procession

Sunday, June 19, 2022
After the 9 a.m. Mass

All are invited to join St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church in a Eucharistic procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi. This is a wonderful opportunity to show our faith in the Real Presence of Jesus.

The procession will take place at the conclusion of the 9 a.m. Mass on Sunday, June 19. We will exit the church building and process around the block, beginning east on Flad Avenue, right on Lewon Drive, right on Raymond Road, right on Gilbert Road, and back to Flad Avenue. We will process with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, stopping for a moment of prayer, before returning into the church for Benediction. The procession will take approximately 45 minutes.

Following Benediction, the Knights of Columbus will be cooking up brats and serving chips, cookies, and water on the parish grounds. Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket for sitting outside at the brat fry. We will have limited seating in the Parish Hall, if needed.

Please note: We will not have the 11 a.m. Mass or Coffee and Donuts after the 9 a.m. Mass this Sunday.

Corpus Christi and the Eucharist

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the whole Christian life. The Feast of Corpus Christi is a celebration of Christ's Real Presence in the Eucharist. It parallels the celebration on Holy Thursday in commemoration of the institution of this sacrament. When the Eucharist is carried through the streets in solemn procession, the Christian people give public witness of their faith and devotion toward the sacrament of the Eucharist.


For more information, please contact the parish office at 608-271-7421.
