Feast of Corpus Christi 

On the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, we give special honor to Jesus, truly present in the most Blessed Sacrament of the altar. As Catholics, we worship the presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, both during Mass and outside of Mass. We are encouraged to spend time in prayer before the Lord in the Eucharist. Many parishes offer regular exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in a monstrance. We may also choose to visit the church at other times to adore the Blessed Sacrament reserved in the tabernacle.

In his apostolic exhortation The Sacrament of Charity, Pope Benedict XVI observed that “the personal relationship which the individual believer establishes with Jesus present in the Eucharist constantly points beyond itself to the whole communion of the Church and nourishes a fuller sense of membership in the Body of Christ” (Sacramentum Caritatis, no. 68). It is, therefore, appropriate to hold in prayer the special needs of our community and our world.

MAlogoAve Maria Parish Mission Statement

Ave Maria Parish is a Catholic faith community who welcomes all people to our Christian family. We are disciples and sacramental followers of Jesus Christ. In our chosen vocations, we call upon the Blessed Mother’s intercession and recognize the power of the Holy Spirit within each of us to carry out God’s work.

We strive to grow together in holiness through prayer, reception of the sacraments, faith formation and evangelization. Through the grace of God, we extend ourselves to each other and our community to proclaim the love and teachings of Jesus Christ.
