This Week’s Sunday Gospel Reflection
Sunday, June 6, 2021 – The Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ
Contemplation from Lectio Divina
What conversion of mind, heart, and life is the Lord asking of me?
Where do you want us to go?
Where is God calling me to share his love? How can I give my life to God more completely?
Make the preparations for us there.
How can I rearrange my priorities to make more time for God? How can I rearrange my priorities to make more time to serve my brothers and sisters?
“This is my body…This is my blood.”
How can I be more reverent toward the Holy Eucharist? How can I express my gratitude for the gift of Jesus’ body and blood?
Year of the Eucharist Begins June 6
The Year of the Eucharist was developed by Archbishop William Lori to help us as we move along our path of life and offer us concrete ways to connect with the Lord and experience His never-ending light.
We invite you to join us this year to make that space that may have developed between you and the Lord much smaller, to enliven your relationship with Him and to reconnect or connect with His grace in a way you may never have experienced before.

Food Pantry & Casserole Collection This Sunday, June 6
We will be collecting frozen casseroles for Our Daily Bread as well as non-perishable food items for the St. Elizabeth of Hungary Food Pantry on Sunday, June 6 from 8:30-11:30 AM in the parking lot in front of the parish office.
Volunteers for both efforts will have their cars parked there for the drop-off, and they will remove your donated items from your vehicle. Please do not bring any items into the narthex or the church hall. Casserole pans and recipes are available in the bin in front of the parish office.
The recipe may also be downloaded from our website www.sjehydes.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/our-daily-bread.pdf. We appreciate your donations to help feed those in need!
