June 7 - Feast of Corpus Christi
The Feast of Corpus Christi, (The Body and Blood of Christ), goes back to the 13th century, but it celebrates something far older: the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the Last Supper. We encourage all the children who received their First Holy Communion this year to participate wearing their special First Communion attire.
Meet fellow parishioners at Mt. Vernon High School at 11:30am on June 7. The procession begins at noon and culminates at the parish around 1:45. There are stops along the way with prayer and reflection on the Body and Blood of Christ.
