National Eucharistic Film Series - Fruitland is first stop for NEP in Idaho

By Emily Woodham

Assistant Editor

The following story appeared in the April 12 Idaho Catholic Register.


Corpus Christi Parish in Fruitland is the first stop for the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage (NEP) in Idaho. The Diocese of Baker will formally transfer the NEP monstrance containing the Holy Eucharist to the Diocese of Boise.

“Before the exchange of the monstrance, Bishop Liam Cary of the Diocese of Baker will bless the pilgrims from Oregon,” said Melea Ulery, director of Religious Education, Catechetical Leadership and Lay Formation for the Diocese of Boise. After Bishop Cary hands the monstrance to Bishop Peter Christensen of the Diocese of Boise, Bishop Peter will bless the pilgrims from Idaho.

When the procession arrives at Corpus Christi Parish, Adoration and Benediction will be offered. A social in the church hall will follow.

The following day, Tuesday, May 28, at 9:00 a.m., Mass will be offered at Corpus Christi for pilgrims and faithful.

The Serra Route of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage will begin in San Francisco on Saturday, May 18. The route includes California, Neva-da, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, Missouri, and Illinois. All NEP routes, including the Serra Route, will end in Indianapolis on Wednesday, July 17, for the Eucharistic Congress, which will run

until Sunday, July 21.
