As we near the Parish Year of the Eucharistic Revival, we are launching a year of celebration of the Holy Eucharist with this year’s Corpus Christi Procession and Parish Picnic. We will begin following our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, singing and praying along the way, and end with fellowship. Invite family and friends to process and celebrate with us!

Following the 10:30am Mass, our Procession departs from Queen of the Rosary Church and continues to St. Julian Eymard Church for Benediction and Reposition. All are invited to join the procession. Please meet at the driveway between Queen of the Rosary Church and Rainbow Falls at 11:45am. If you don’t feel you can walk the entire way, the Stations are listed below and we invite you to join us at any point along the way!

  • The First Station: Driveway between QR Church and Rainbow Falls
  • The Second Station: Field near Salt Creek School
  • The Third Station: Elk Grove Village Pavillion
  • The Fourth Station: SJE Main Driveway

After Benediction and Reposition, please join us for a Parish Picnic. We’ll have fun for all ages including food, games and Bingo on the St. Julian Eymard Church lawns:

  • Lunch catered by Tasty Catering
  • Snacks such as Popcorn and Cotton Candy
  • Youth Ministry to lead Kid’s Games and Activities
  • Adult Games and Activities like Giant Jenga, Bocce Ball and more
  • Bingo for all ages (Cash Prizes; Bingo Cards for purchase $5/ea or 3 for $12)
