Sunday, June 14, 2020 Resurrection Church Bulletin
Feast of The Body and Blood of Christ
After Jesus feeds the five thousand people with barley loaves and fishes, he tries to make them understand the significance and the meaning of what he has done. He tells them, in mysterious and beautiful words, that the bread he gives is His flesh and says, “I myself am the living bread... If anyone eats this bread, he shall live forever.”
Gospel: John 6:51‑58
1. We are happy that we have been given permission to return to mass this weekend. How appropriate that we return to Sunday mass on the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ. We are thrilled to celebrate the Eucharist as a community. It has been three long months!

There will be an opportunity to reserve masses using the paper form starting August 1st. Paper forms will be available at the doors of the church or the rectory beginning July 30th.
Having masses said for a loved one at Resurrection Church is a noble and ideal way to honor a deceased person. There is a beautiful tradition in the Catholic Church of offering masses for the soul of a family member or friend. We encourage all Catholics to properly mourn the loss of a cherished relation or friend by having a mass said in our parish. The name of the deceased is announced by the priest at the mass and published in the Sunday bulletin.
15. We pray for the
of our parish especially Margaret Anne Leahy, Grace Croes, Richard G. Mascali, Yukio Ishizuka, and Robert George Hueffed Sr.
16. We pray for all who have been adversely affected by the coronavirus.
God bless you and thank you most sincerely for your patience and kindness during the quarantine. The long drought of no mass and no communion is over!
