Celebrating Corpus Christi

CC 200On Sunday June 7, Sts. Cyril and Methodius Parish in Mississauga, Ontario celebrated the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi. One Mass was held for the whole parish, which was followed by a Eucharistic procession around the church. The procession included altar boys, girls in folk costume bearing a statue of Our Lady, children dropping flower pedals, a canopy under which the Blessed Sacrament was exposed, followed by a long line of singing parishioners. After praying at four outdoor altars, the Mass concluded with Exposition and Benediction in the church. A banquet lunch was then held in the parish hall, which allowed parishioners to share an afternoon of fellowship.
