FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI ACTIVITIES: Father Joe will preach a parish mission focusing on the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Each day starts in church with Mass at 6:00 p.m. and continues with the mission talk at 6:30 in the parish hall. Light refreshments will be available each day. All are encouraged to attend.

Wednesday, June 14th – The historical roots of the Eucharist

Thursday, June 15th – The theology of the Eucharist

Saturday, June 17th the 6:00pm Vigil Mass will conclude with a Eucharistic procession through the streets of Abbott.  The procession will last less than one hour.  A hay ride will be provided for those who have difficulty walking.   The procession will conclude with benediction in the Church.

All altar servers are encouraged to join in the Corpus Christi procession.  Servers are asked to arrive at the Saturday Mass 15 minutes early, vest in cassock and surplice and sit together in the front pews.  After communion, we will carry lighted candles, incense and the crucifix in procession together with the Blessed Sacrament.
