The Most Holy Sacrament is a gift which has proceeded from pure love” -St. Alphonsus De Ligouri
All are invited to join us in the public witness of our Catholic faith as we walk with Jesus on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ! The Corpus Christi procession is a centuries-old tradition of the Catholic faith where the Church calls us to process with the Real Presence of Jesus — the Eucharist — in public a way.
Following the 9:00 a.m. Mass, a Eucharistic procession will take place along the streets, and will include uniform bodies within the parish, as well as students of the Christ the King High School, St. Joseph’s Academy and St. John’s Catholic Primary Schools.
What Does Corpus Christi Mean?
The term Corpus Christi means “Body of Christ” and is another name for the “Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.” The feast is celebrated on the Sunday immediately following Trinity Sunday. The solemnity of the Corpus Christi was established by Pope Urban IV more than 700 years ago and is celebrated every year by the Church.
