Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

Sunday, June 6, 2021

Location: All Parishes

This year, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is celebrated Sunday, June 6. Historically known by its Latin name, "Corpus Christi," this feast day highlights the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, — Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. The word "Eucharist" means "thanksgiving." It comes from the Greek "eucharistein" and "eulogein," which "recall the Jewish blessings that proclaim — especially during a meal — God's works: creation, redemption and sanctification." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1328) To learn more, see "Corpus Christi celebrates gift of Eucharist."
