CATHOLIC FAITH AT HOME RESOURCES
FOR ST. THOMAS MORE PARISHIONERS
JUNE 6
FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI


The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ,
celebrated this weekend,
is historically known by its Latin name,
Corpus Christi.

It celebrates the Real Presence of Jesus Christ
in the Holy Eucharist—Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.
(our Eucharist is NOT a symbol!)

The feast dates back to the Middle Ages,
originated from
a visionary nun
and
a Eucharistic miracle.

Updated Liturgical Guidance for Worship 

Beginning with the Sunday Masses of June 6, 2021:
1. FOLLOWING PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDELINES
There is no mask mandate for our archdiocese's churches after the statewide mandate is lifted.

As previously announced, seating capacity in churches can return to full,
subject only to local health departments' restrictions.
One section of pews remains designated for social distancing.

At St. Thomas More these pews are
in the Blessed Mother's chapel and in front of the lector's ambo.

2. LETTER FROM OHIO BISHOPS

to attend Sunday and Holy Day Mass
for the the Cincinnati Archdiocese's faithful .

As always, those having a serious reason are exempt
from this obligation (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2181).
This includes those who are ill OR have significant health risk factors,
care for someone who is immuno-compromised or ill,
or have a significant concern of contracting the coronavirus from a large group.

These persons should still observe the Lord’s Day!

They can view a broadcasted Sunday Mass from area churches or
from around the world.
These are not a substitute for Mass for those who can attend!
They do not fulfill the obligation, but are a way to partially feed
the soul of those who have a reason to be exempted from the obligation.
