Corpus Christi Procession with Bishop Thompson

 

The Corpus Christi procession in Evansville, IN on June 7 was beautiful! Thanks to Matt Goebel & Hasgoe Cleaning Systems (http://hasgoe.com/), we provided kneeling pads and hand fans to dozens of people during the hot afternoon procession. We could not have done it without the underwriting by Hasgoe. What a perfect combination of a Catholic business owner helping a family-friendly apostolate! We pledge to you time on our knees in gratitude.

In this photo, Bishop Charles Thompson shares a kneeling pad with Fr. Alex Zenthoefer while Fr. Christopher Droste prepares the benediction in the middle of Lincoln Avenue. This stop was one of three stops between Christ the King Church and St. Benedict Cathedral. At the end, pilgrims entered the Cathedral where confessions were available and where the Bishop presided and preached at Vespers.

Other pilgrims carry the kneeling pads in procession into the Cathedral. We saw so many new and newer friends of our apostolate in Evansville for this beautiful witness to our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks to everyone for joining us. A big shout out to John and Kim Payne. What an amazing family!!! They organized the whole day and provided so much wonderful service. We hope to keep working with all of their initiatives.

The hand fans with the Mass times for the Evansville West and the Evansville East Deaneries were great ways of inviting bystanders of the Procession to Mass at one of the local parishes. Bishop Thompson thought that it was a great idea, too. He asked if we had hand fans for all of the deaneries in the Diocese. I said, “No, but if we had the money we could easily provide them.” He made sure to put a couple of them in his car.

Have you ordered hand fans for your church’s summer social? Get your orders in now! Tis the season! Help us by letting us help you with keeping your church social attendees more comfortable and by inviting them to Mass.
