St. Philip Parish in Posey County celebrates Eucharistic Renewal

St. Philip Parish in Posey County has installed the Twelve Stations of the Holy Eucharist devotionals outside the church’s south side. Deacon Charlie Koressel shared with The Message that this is one of the programs the parish submitted as part of the Eucharistic Renewal promoted by the Diocese of Evansville. Deacon Charlie explained the Twelve Stations cover the prefigurement of the Holy Eucharist from the time of Abraham and Melchizedek to the present day Marriage Supper of the Lamb, from promise to fulfillment.

Holy Family Parish, Jasper, Eucharistic Procession

Holy Family Parish in Jasper recently celebrated the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ with a Corpus Christi Procession around the Holy Family area, which also kickedoff the Eucharistic Renewal. A large group of parishioners joined pastor Father John Boeglin in the procession. The Processional Canopy was donated in honor of Father John’s service to Holy Family Parish, and the matching vestments were donated by Father John in memory of his sister, Rita Elpers, and their family. After 44 years serving the Diocese of Evansville, with 28 of those years at Holy Family, Father John retired from pastoral ministry and will transition to senior-priest status, effective June 29.
