The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is also known as the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, which translates from Latin to "Body of Christ." This feast originated in France in the mid thirteenth century, in response to the visions of St. Juliana of Liege, a Norbertine canoness in what is now Belgium, and was extended to the whole Church by Pope Urban IV in 1264. This feast is celebrated on the Thursday following the octave of Pentecost, but is now commonly transferred to the next Sunday.Every time we celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass our attention is called to the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist, but the Feast of Corpus Christi is commonly used as an opportunity for public Eucharistic processions, which serves as a sign of common faith and adoration. Our worship of Jesus in His Body and Blood calls us to offer to God our Father a pledge of undivided love and an offering of ourselves in service to others.
SOLEMN LATIN MASS FOR
THE FEAST OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
There will be a special Mass in the more ancient form of the Roman Rite (1962 Missal of St. John XXIII) on:
Friday June 27th at 7:30 pm. St. John Paul II established that on the solemnity of the Sacred Heart the Church throughout the world should observe the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. On this day, all Catholics are asked to pray for holy priests, and we at St. Joseph’s pray especially for our pastor, Fr. Marc-André, as he celebrates the 15th anniversary of his priestly ordination.
Fr. Kim is leaving St. Joseph Parish at the end of June because he is being sent to study in Rome. We wish to thank Fr. Kim for his time with us in the parish, at our schools and with our Adult Bible Study programs. Please join us at a farewell reception for him on
This Eucharistic procession will take place following the 12:30 pm Mass on Sunday, June 22, from the church to St. Joseph elementary school (on Church St. in Streetsville) where the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for adoration. Refreshments and seating will be available in the school gym. There will be shuttles available for anyone needing a ride back to the church.
