Church of the Home for Saturday, June 8

Eucharistic Pilgrimage


During his time on Earth, Christ was followed by thousands of people. Since his Resurrection, numerous Christians have made pilgrimages to sacred locations to establish a physical connection with places where the divine and the earthly intersect.


Starting on May 19, a committed group of young adults has been on a continuous journey across the country to attend the 10th National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis.


The Perpetual Pilgrims have been physically traveling, carrying the Eucharist through the streets, accompanied by believers. They walk openly with the Lord to enable others to have a personal encounter with Him, just as people did two millennia ago.


The Marian Route, originating from the source of the Mississippi River, will be passing through the Diocese of Green Bay next week.



Next Saturday, June 15, will be about being the hands and feet of Christ in service of the community. Perpetual Pilgrims will exercise the Corporal Works of Mercy during the day, participating in service at Paul's Pantry and at Whatsoever You Do's House of Hospitality.


How to Get Involved

Are you ready to encounter Jesus in a new way? Here are three ways you can be a part of the first-ever National Eucharistic Pilgrimage:


JOIN THE EUCHARISTIC CARAVAN

Accompany Jesus for a segment of the Pilgrimage or meet up with him at events held by local parishes and shrines along the routes!


Starting with Holy Hour in Wittenberg, the pilgrimage will continue by crossing Shawano Lake on Wednesday, June 12.


On Thursday, the pilgrimage will walk along the Mountain Bay Trail to St. John the Baptist and end the day with Mass and Adoration.


Next weekend, June 15 & 16, will begin with Mass and Adoration at St. Francis Cathedral, followed by Adoration at the National Shrine of St. Joseph at St. Norbert College, and culminating with Mass and Adoration at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Champion.

READINGS FOR THIS WEEKEND’S MASSES


VIRTUALLY SUNDAY REFLECTION

In our current world of division, we must first acknowledge the truth of the situation before working towards building a beloved community. By listening, understanding, and finding commonalities, we can begin to bridge the gaps. With God's power and our united efforts, we can overcome evil and bring about the kingdom of God. Join Fr. Paul as he reflects on this weekend's scripture readings.
