Corpus Christi

From the Religious Education Coordinator

“Let your Light Shine”

Even though we finished the Season of Easter a few weeks ago, we have experienced several weeks of important days in our Church’s liturgical calendar. This Sunday we celebrate ‘The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ’ which is also called Corpus Christi. One of the defining features of our Catholic faith is the belief in ‘transubstantiation’. A concept we teach right from the very first Religious Education unit in Year 7 and refers to the belief in the real presence. When the priest at Mass consecrates the bread and wine, they truly become the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.

At Good Samaritan we proudly offer students and staff the opportunity to participate in Adoration of the Eucharist on Wednesday’s during lunch, and every Friday the school is invited to celebrate Mass in our Blessed Sacrament Chapel. As expressed at the Second Vatican Council, the Eucharist is the source and summit of Christian life, and that holds true in our own Good Samaritan community. As we approach this important solemnity of the Church, I encourage our community to attend Mass this weekend. Since the arrival of Covid in 2020 we have too regularly been prevented from receiving Eucharist and perhaps for many of us, we took it for granted. I pray that our Catholic community continues to return to Mass so that we might have the opportunity to once again fully receive Christ in our lives. I have included Mass times for some of our local Parish Churches below and encourage our families to attend this weekend.
