Raising Funds for Hanover Township Food Pantry

Hanover Township Food Pantry serves more than 700 families a month. The Knights and Ladies Auxiliary have a long-standing relationship with the Township helping to keep their shelves full throughout the year. Many of you have assisted us in that mission by donating food, running or walking in our annual Knights Challenge 5K, or simply giving us donations. We’ve added this raffle, courtesy of one of our members who donated two of his season tickets, to help us raise more funds.

We will be selling tickets now through August 17th. Tickets can be purchased from one of the Knights. The raffle will be held at the Parish Picnic on August 17th. In the event that is cancelled, the raffle will still be held. Thank you for your support.

Summer Meeting Schedule

Knights Newsletter | News Comments Off on Summer Meeting Schedule

Please Note Meeting Date Changes

We were asked by the Parish to adjust our meeting schedule for July and August so that they can reduce the summer hours further.  This allows for savings on air conditioning and other services.   The parish office will be closing early  and therefore, we are unable to have evening meetings in the office or parish center on Wednesdays.   A compromise was to combine scheduled Wednesday / Thursday events onto available dates on Thursdays.

We realize that you may have other plans, but this change was out of our control.   If you are unable to attend and have some business to bring before the council or planning committee, please contact one of the officers that will be attending.

Don’t forget, we need everyone’s help at the Streamwood Summer Celebration July 26-28th.  We will be hosting Bingo, marching in the parade on Saturday, and for the first time ever, having a booth at the Business expo.

2019 Corpus Christi Procession

News Comments Off on 2019 Corpus Christi Procession

Following 11 AM Mass

Despite overcast skies, the weather cooperated for the Corpus Christi procession today following the 11 AM mass. The Knights formed an honor guard, and led the procession to the four stations set around the driveway in front of the church. Here are some pictures and videos from the procession as well as Father Gregg’s remarks from the bulletin.

Today we celebrate the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ – Corpus Christi. The feast of Corpus Christi is one time when our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament is exposed not just to faithful Catholics but to all the world. This is a time when Catholics can show their love for Christ in the Real Presence by honoring Him in a very public way. It is also a wonderful way in which we can show our love for our neighbors by bringing Our Lord closer to them.

The feast of Corpus Christi was established in 1246 by Bishop Robert de Thorte of Liege, Belgium at the suggestion of St. Juliana of Mont Carvillon. Saint Juliana looked upon the Holy Eucharist with great reverence, and desired to have a feast within the Church devoted specifically to its honor. On September 8, 1264, Pope Urban IV issued the papal bull “Transiturus,” which established the Feast of Corpus Christi as a universal feast of the Church, to be celebrated on the Thursday following the Most Holy Trinity Sunday. At the request of Pope Urban IV, St. Thomas Aquinas composed the office (the official prayers of the Church) for the feast.

For centuries after the celebration was extended to the universal Church, the feast was celebrated with a Eucharistic procession, in which the Sacred Host was carried throughout the town, accompanied by hymns and litanies. The faithful would venerate the Body of Christ as the procession passed by. In recent years, in many parts of the world this practice has almost disappeared, though some parishes – like ours – still hold a procession around the outside of the parish church.

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the whole Christian life. The feast of Corpus Christi is truly a beautiful celebration of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist. The Church honors the Eucharistic Lord as one body, and does so joyfully, solemnly, and publicly. When the Eucharist is carried through the streets in a solemn procession, the Christian people give public witness of their faith and devotion toward the sacrament of the Eucharist. Our public display of faith and the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist may attract people who see the procession and invite them to join into closer communion with Christ.

God bless.
Fr. Gregg
