Message From Our Pastor / Mensaje de Nuestro Párroco

Corpus Christi - The Mystery of the Mass and the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist


Dear St. Charles Family and Friends,

Today, on Corpus Christi, the Solemnity in which the Church meditates on the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist - that Jesus gives us his Body and Blood and unites us with the saving event of the Cross at every Mass, I share this short video entitled, "The Veil Removed" which provides a beautiful meditation on what happens at the Mass.  Please follow this link to view the video.
The fruits of the Eucharistic celebration are extended and made available to us when we come to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  Eucharistic Adoration which has been taking place during the pandemic every Wednesday in the main church at St. Charles will now take place in the Adoration Chapel attached to the vestibule of our church.  The Blessed Sacrament will be exposed after the 6:45 a.m. Mass (8:00 a.m. starting June 14 - August 28) and adoration will conclude at 8:00 p.m. with Benediction.  Please come and spend time with our Lord!
Thank you for all of your prayers and support during the pandemic.  I am happy to see many more people returning to the in-person celebration of the Mass.  I invite you to come back and be renewed in your relationship with the Lord.  Nothing compares with "being there".  It is the sign of love.  A bodily presence matters and makes all the difference in the world.  That is what we celebrate on this Solemnity and how we give thanks and express our love to God.
In Communion,

 Fr. Forlano
