This past weekend, the Church has celebrated the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, historically known by its Latin name, Corpus Christi. This feast day celebrates the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist—Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. It is traditionally celebrated on the Thursday following the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity. The feast dates to the Middle Ages and originated with a visionary nun and a Eucharistic miracle. Many Christians in Australia, especially those of Roman Catholic faith, observe Corpus Christi to honor the Holy Eucharist.
As a school, our rich liturgical calendar allows us to celebrate the Eucharist readily. Understanding the centrality of the coming together to worship Jesus Christ through the Mass is important for us as a faith community. The Mass invites all attendees to be ‘as one’, sharing a common bond together. This visible expression of unity is something special.

Salesian College Sunbury is a large community of students, staff and parents, both past and present. Please keep the following in your prayers:
Do this in memory of me and in memory of the living poor;
In memory of me and in memory of the living lonely, the starving and the homeless;
In memory of me and in memory of the ones who came for healing and in memory of the ones who came for forgiveness;
In memory of me and in memory of the ones who came for acceptance and in memory of the ones who came searching for God.
Do this in memory of one who died so that all could live.
