       The Glorious Feast of Corpus Christi is this Sunday, June 14.  There will be a procession around the block with the Blessed Sacrament immediately following the 10:30 Mass.  Help is needed starting at 9:30 to set up the 4 altars representing the four corners of the world.

       After 10.30AM Holy Mass while carrying the Blessed Sacrament, we shall  stop at four outdoor altars for the visible display of the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance. This year, as we walk together, there will be prayers, the Gospel, with supplications sung, and blessings with the Blessed Sacrament (Benediction). At the fourth altar, blessings will be extended to the four corners of the world. All First Holy Communion girls (of this and previous years), and other children, please come in your white dresses to sprinkle floral petals in front of the Blessed Sacrament during the Processions. All First Holy Communion boys of this and last years & other boys, please come in your suits & ties to also participate in this Procession. For more information, please contact Valerie Burkart at:  or 925-683-9572.

      We need strong men to help set the altars in different parts of the church property;  and also volunteers to help drape the altars with cloths and set out candles and flower vases.  Your help is essential for all this getting done!  Please contact Lily Mullen if you can help with this beautiful tradition of Our Church. She is here.

Sunday Scripture


          Each of us can show Jesus how much we love him by showing reverence for the Eucharist. There is a grand procession today in Belgium, where a relic of the Precious Blood has been venerated for more than six hundred years. In celebrations throughout the world, people are united in reverence to the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Let us join the Church in giving honor to Christ, who is truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

          In today's first reading, we hear of Moses using the blood of the sacrificial lamb as a sign of the people's commitment to their covenant with God. Hebrews reminds us that we are redeemed by Christ's sacrifice. In the Gospel, Jesus institutes the Eucharist at the Last Supper.
