Corpus Christi 2012

Thursday, June 28th, 2012

On Sunday, June 10th EWTN celebrated the Solemnity of Corpus Christi with a televised Eucharistic procession following the 7a.m. Mass.  The beautiful procession around the site of the network involved several of our friars as servers and MC’s as well as altar boys, flower girls, and the Knights of Columbus.  Two outdoor altars were prepared as stops along the procession route.  Fr. Leonard paused at each of the altars for a few minutes of silent adoration, gave a blessing to the participants with the Blessed Sacrament, and continued with the procession.

God even blessed the procession by holding off the rain long enough for it to be concluded!  It was an inspiring occasion for all!  A special word of thanks to those who helped with preparations especially Adele Gilbert, who is always a tremendous help to the friars.
