View a list of public eucharistic processions taking place in parishes on the feast of Corpus Christi, June 11:
Every year on the second Sunday after Pentecost, the Church observes the solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, also known as the solemnity of Corpus Christi, which translates from Latin to “body of Christ.” The main purpose of this feast is to turn our focus to two manifestations of the body of Christ: the holy Eucharist and the Church.
The Church in the U.S. is currently engaged in a National Eucharistic Revival to help restore Catholics’ understanding of and devotion to this great mystery.
Join us June 10 for Into the Mystery
One year ago, on the feast of Corpus Christi, the diocese kicked off its celebration of the eucharistic revival. Our celebration has continued throughout the year and as we transition from the diocesan to the parish year of the revival, the diocese is hosting “Into the Mystery” on Saturday, June 10 on the campus of Aquinas College. All are welcome! Register-Registro
Parish Eucharistic Processions on the feast of Corpus Christi
If your parish is holding a eucharistic procession and you’d like to be included in the list below, please email details to [email protected].
The feast of Corpus Christi presents us with the ideal opportunity for eucharistic procession, the witness of the veneration toward the most holy Eucharist, conducted through public streets. These are opportunities to actively and visibly bring Jesus outside the walls of our churches and into the streets of our local communities. Several of our parishes will be participating in this public veneration of our Eucharistic Lord this weekend.
