Upcoming Events in our Catholic Community!

        Our own Corpus Christi Church has the special distinction of one of only ten churches in the United States that contains the tomb of an entire saint's relics in a visible wax casing.  This distinction makes August 27 the Solemnity of Saint Crescent only in Galesburg, nowhere else in the world.  There are two opportunities to celebrate the Solemnity of Saint Cresent on August 27, 2019, with Mass at the Tomb of St. Crescent.  

12:10 Mass, Tuesday, August 27, at the Tomb of St. Crescent with lunch to follow at La Gondola (dutch treat). 

6:00 Mass, Tuesday, August 27, at the Tomb of St. Crescent with a reception to follow in the McAteer Center.

Corpus Christi's Quarter Raffle is coming soon!
 Friday, September 6, 2019 at  6 pm at Knights of Columbus Hall
We are still in need of donations for the raffle.  Our parishioners are always so generous and it is greatly appreciated.  We couldn't do this great fundraiser without the help of our church community.  So, if you can, please donate something new worth $25 or more.  You may also give many small items to be put in a basket that we will fix for you.  Theme baskets that you make yourselves are always welcome. Gift cards and cash are popular, too.  If we are given expensive items or something very special, sometimes we sell chances for those to be won.  Your donations can be dropped off at Corpus Christi's rectory office during office hours.  Questions? Please call Bev at 299-9017 or Mary at 351-2072.
Did you know that Eucharistic Adoration is offered at St. Pat’s every Wednesday from 8:30 AM until 5:00 PM and at the Adoration Chapel at IHM 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
