Corpus Christi: We Though Many, Are One Body
On Sunday June 22nd the St. Anselm Parishioners attending the 12pm Mass helped to make it a “day for doing, not talking” by participating in our annual Corpus Christi Procession. Following Communion, Parishioners of all ages joined the Procession as our Priests, concelebrants at the Mass, took turns carrying the monstrance containing the Blessed Sacrament out of Church and around the corner, stopping at outdoor altars in front of the Rectory and St. Anselm Catholic Academy before continuing back into the Church.
In describing the Importance of the “Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ” (Corpus Christi) Fr. Kull, the celebrant of the Mass, explained that St. Paul asks us to become the Body and Blood and live as Jesus, noting that when we look around we can see Christ in our midst and in us.
In addition to the very public celebration of our Catholic Faith, Parishioners were able to witness the installation of our new Altar Servers. What a wonderful day to become a member in this Ministry of Service!
Many thanks to our Priests, Deacons, Altar Servers, Music Ministers, and of course, our Parishioners for making this such a Blessed Event.
All the Best,
The St. Anselm Publicity Committee
