    SOLEMNITY OF THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST PRELUDE | Bénédiction de Dieu dans la Solitude Franz Liszt


    ENTRANCE PROCESSION | Table of Plenty Dan Schutte


     In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

    All: Amen.

     The Lord be with you

    All: And with your spirit.

  • GLORIA | Mass of Renewal Curtis Stephan



    FIRST READING | Deuteronomy 8: 2-3 14b-16a

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM | Psalm 147: Bless the Lord, My Soul Marty Haugen

    SECOND READING | 1 Corinthians 10: 16-17

    SEQUENCE | Lauda Sion

    Behold, the bread of angels has become the food of pilgrims. Truly it is the bread of sons and daughters and not to be cast to dogs. It was symbolically prefigured when Isaac was brought as an offering, when a lamb was designated for the Pasch, when manna was given to our ancestors. Good Shepherd and true bread, Jesus, have mercy on us. Feed us, guard us, grant us to find happiness in the land of the living. You know all things and can do all things. You feed us in this life. Make us your guests there in heaven, co-heirs and companions of the citizens of heaven."

  • GOSPEL ACCLAMATION | Jubilation Mass James Chepponis

    GOSPEL | John 6: 51-58



    I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

And, a new task force of volunteers has come together to support homebound or isolated parishioner. Your continued support helps make these things happen.

  • HOLY, HOLY | Mass of Christ the Savior Dan Schutte

    MEMORIAL ACCLAMATION | Mass of Christ the Savior Dan Schutte

    GREAT AMEN | Mass of Christ the Savior Dan Schutte


    Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.

    For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.

  • LAMB OF GOD | Mass of Christ the Savior Dan Schutte


    It is a long-held Catholic belief that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an “Act of Spiritual Communion.” During this time when we are not able to celebrate the Eucharist together in person, Pope Francis invites Catholics to say this prayer as a source of grace. We can be assured that when we express our desire to receive Jesus in the Eucharist, God will be with us spiritually in a special way. Here is an Act of Spiritual Communion that we encourage you to pray as you participate in our live- streamed liturgies:


    Loving Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. I love you above all things, and I desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace you as if you were already there and unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

  • CONCLUDING RITES  The Lord be with you.

    All: Thanks be to God.
