Sunday, June 3, 2018, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. We had a beautiful morning for our traditional procession with the Blessed Sacrament following the 10:00am Mass. The young women of Jubilate! lead the way.

"Jesus, here present, our living Saviour, grant us your mercy, show us your favor!"

Children wave ribbons and scatter flower petals.

At the center of the procession, Father Ryan carries the Blessed Sacrament, exposed in a monstrance. "The LORD, your God, is in your midst, a mighty savior, Who will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in his love." (Zephaniah 3:17)

It's always a treat to welcome the Elliott Bay Pipe Band under the direction of our own Tyrone Heade.

"Eucharist is simple food, like bread, yet it is the only food that satisfies, for there is no greater love. There we encounter Jesus really; we share his life and we feel his love. There you can realize that his death and resurrection are for you." (Pope Francis, June 3, 2018)

"Dear brothers and sisters, let us choose this food of life! Let us make Mass our priority! Let us rediscover Eucharistic adoration in our communities! Let us implore the grace to hunger for God, with an insatiable desire to receive what he has prepared for us." (Pope Francis, June 3, 2018)

It was a special treat to welcome Betty Paxton from Mount Vernon to the 10:00am Mass.
