The presence of God can be found in many places throughout the world, but none more directly and fully than in the Eucharist. In the gospel of John, Jesus speaks to the crowd about the Eucharist as the bread of life saying, "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in them" (John 6:54-56). In this short passage Jesus explains His body and blood as being the source of eternal life which we receive through consumption. Just as Jesus asked Peter "Who do you say that I am?" So, too, when we look at the Eucharist during Mass or Adoration, Jesus is asking us, “Who do you say that I am?”
The exciting moment has arrived! Watch the video below as Fr. Ian and Fr. Nate reveal a new parish name for the LaPorte Catholic churches.
Many thanks to everyone for your work in the unification process. We are excited to continue working together to proclaim Jesus Christ, proclaim His Church and salvation in and through Him.
Solemnities are the most important celebrations of the Church. The Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated on the Friday after Corpus Christi each year. This beautiful devotion focuses on the wounds of Christ, which are open demonstrations of His great love for us. Although it became officially celebrated in the church in 1873 when approved by Pope Pius IX, the history of the devotion to the Sacred Heart goes back even further.
Today, June 1st, is the official anniversary of ordination to the priesthood for Fr. Ian and Fr. Bill. The parishioners of LaPorte Catholic Church are so blessed to have them here. We have put together a short video to show our thanks and appreciation. God Bless you Fr. Ian and Fr. Bill!
