Wednesday, June 11, 2014

The Solemn Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi will be on June 22, at
Sts. Peter and Paul, 214 East 8th St..

There is an ancient Catholic tradition of making a Eucharistic Procession through the Streets. The Basilica will offer this procession to celebrate the feast following the 9 a.m. Mass, June 22.

Please come and be a part of this joyous opportunity. The procession will begin following Communion, leave from the Church, and walk on the sidewalk, circling the block though Patten Parkway, lasting about 10 minutes.

All Basilica parishioners are invited to participate but especially our First Communion and Confirmation classes, RCIA, Knights of Columbus, Women's Guild, Choir members, Children's Schola, all servers, and any other group that wishes to process. Upon re-entry into the Basilica after the procession the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed until 11:25 and solemn benediction will follow the 11:30 Mass.
