"As often as you eat this bread
and drink the cup,
you proclaim the death of the Lord
until he comes."
~ 1 Corinthians 11:26
Sunday's Readings:

First Reading — Melchizedek brought out bread and wine and blessed Abram (Genesis 14:18-20).

Psalm — You are a priest forever, in the line of Melchizedek (Psalm 110).

Second Reading — Paul gives his description of the institution of the Eucharist (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

Gospel — Jesus feeds the crowd with five loaves and two fish (Luke 9:11b-17).
The Gift of the Eucharist
Sunday we hear how Abram encounters Melchizedek, “king of Salem . . . and a priest of God Most High” (Genesis 14:18).
Melchizedek appears nowhere else in scripture, but is nonetheless significant. Psalm 110 declares of the great King David, “You are a priest forever, in the line of Melchizedek,” a description later given (in the letter to the Hebrews) to Christ as High Priest.

Early Christians saw in Melchizedek’s bread and wine the bread and wine of the Eucharist; Paul’s account of the Last Supper (in Sunday’s second reading) is the oldest one in scripture. In the Gospel, Luke describes Jesus providing bread for a crowd in words similar to Paul’s, words still used by the Church: Jesus takes bread, gives thanks, breaks it. Together, these three readings reveal how Christian priesthood, Christ’s Real Presence, and the call to serve those in need are all found in the gift of the Eucharist.

Feast of Corpus Christi
This Sunday, June 19th, we will once again gather at QR Church at the conclusion of the 10:30am Mass and process to St. Julian, following Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi. At St. Julian, following Benediction, we invite everyone to stay for a cookout. 

All are welcome to join us as we walk and sing together. Bring the family or grab a friend, or two!
Parishioners may choose to head directly to SJE to help with setup or cooking, or drive over and meet at SJE for prayer and Benediction around 12:00/12:15pm. Help us get the word out and pray for good weather for this blessed event!
Happy Father's Day!
The Lord carried you as a father carries his child. —Deuteronomy 1:31

Wishing all of the dads and dad-like figures in our parish family a happy, healthy and safe Father's Day spent with family and friends!
Priests' Convocation
Fr. Dan and Fr. Louis will be attending Priests' Convocation later this month. On Tuesday, June 28th (QR); Wednesday, June 29th (SJE) and Thursday, June 30th (QR); please note that we will not celebrate Daily Mass and will have Communion Services only.

If you would prefer to attend Mass on these days, please note the following options:

8am at St. Peter the Apostle, 524 N. Rush St, Itasca, IL 60143

8:30am at St. Walter, 140 W. Pine Ave, Roselle, IL 60172
First Saturday Devotions
At Fatima, Our Lady asked us to go to confession, receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep her company for fifteen minutes while meditating on the fifteen mysteries of the Rosary. If we do this on the First Saturday of five consecutive months, Our Blessed Mother has promised to assist with all the graces necessary for salvation at the hour of death.

We know Sunday is the day we set aside for Our Lord, but do you have an hour on the First Saturday of the month to spend with His Mother, Our Blessed Mother? Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament has begun First Saturday Devotions again immediately following Mass at QR on the first Saturday of the month. We're looking for Ministry Groups to take turns leading the Rosary and providing fellowship (breakfast light bites and maybe some coffee) on the First Saturday of each month.
Please follow this link to sign a Ministry Group up to lead the rosary and provide fellowship. We can't wait to see you on the First Saturday of the month!
Season for Life
Spring, a season of renewal and hope, is adorned in the natural beauty of new life. God’s great creation bursts forth with the sights, smells and sounds of a world emerging from the slumber of winter. Green grass, flowering trees, chirping birds and gentle rains fill our senses and hearts with a great anticipation of good things to come.

In this spirit of renewal and hope, Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Respect Life Ministry invites us all to participate in Season for Life.
Celebrate Dad!
Honor dads and dad-like figures in your life with a Father's Day card from Project Love. Please see displays in both vestibules. The requested donation is $5 per card and all proceeds go to support Project Love, a grant program of Illinois Right to Life.
Walking With Moms
As we enter the final weeks of Season for Life, please remember that Walking with Moms in Need is a time of service in which Catholic parishes and communities like Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament "walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need.

Walking with Moms in Need helps fulfill our Season for Life Mission by supporting local pregnancy centers where they exist, and also finding and sharing other resources with pregnant and parenting women.
You're Invited!
June marks the birth of our spiritually-adoptive baby! For the past nine months, we have been praying that God will spare the life of an unborn child and that their parents will choose life for them. 

Please join us on Sunday, June 26th, immediately following the 10:30am Mass at Queen of the Rosary for our Spiritual Adoption Baby Shower (bring the whole family). This will be one more opportunity to support crisis pregnancy centers in our area with monetary donations or gifts from their Wish List (scroll down to Donation Wish List) as we close out the 2022 Season for Life. Thank you for your generosity.

And like any good Baby Shower, we'll enjoy fellowship and treats too!
Community Outreach
Get ready for the Mid-Summer Classics Concert Series in Elk Grove Village! In July, Elk Grove Village and the Elk Grove Park District will host two concerts at Rotary Green, which backs up to our QR Parking Lot. We're looking for volunteers to greet concert goers by offering water, rosaries, prayer intentions and more to help share the Good News of Jesus Christ and spread the word about Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish.

July Summer Supper
In June, our Good Samaritan Summer Supper crew distributed 155 meals to those in need. While we hate to see so much need, we are so proud to be part of a parish of service. Thank you again for all you do to continue our parish meal outreach for the hungry. Our next Supper will be Thursday, July 7th and we'll be serving a hearty summer cold plate of chicken salad, fruit and cottage cheese.

PJ Anderson Concert
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament is excited to welcome beloved songwriter, performer, worship artist and storyteller, PJ Anderson, on August 21st at 1pm!

He has led thousands in worship including the Youth Rally and Mass for Life in Washington DC and World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland. PJ has been praised for his unique ability to connect with listeners and says, “As a Christian songwriter, I am driven by the challenge of saying something new, thought-provoking and inspiring about God’s immense love for us.”

PJ’s genuine enthusiasm for God is refreshing and infectious. Come see, and hear, for yourself and share the love.
