Eucharistic Procession on Corpus Christi Sunday

The parishioners of both St. Anastasia & St. Elizabeth Ann Seton will gather for a Eucharistic Procession on Corpus Christi Sunday.

In many parts of the world Catholics mark the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) with a Eucharistic procession through the streets. Join us for the whole procession or you can start or stop at any of our points along the way. 

The procession will begin on at 1:30 pm on Sunday, June 2 in the church parking lot and we will be processing through the neighborhood of St. Anastasia.
The procession will be followed by refreshments in the Social Hall. All are invited to join us!

This year’s route begins in the church parking lot of St. Anastasia to John R Road.  Utilizing the sidewalk, the procession will proceed south until reaching Hamman Drive.  We will then turn right and process west on Hamman Drive until returning to the St. Anastasia rear parking lot.

What does the Solemnity of Corpus Christi celebrate?

Also known as the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, this feast honors Jesus Christ, Really, Truly and Substantially Present under the appearances of bread and wine. This Presence happens through the change which the Church calls transubstantiation (“change of substance”), when at the Consecration of the Mass, the priest says the words which Christ Himself pronounced over bread and wine, “This is My Body,” “This is the chalice of My Blood,” “Do this in remembrance of Me.”

In 2024, the Solemnity of Corpus Christi is on May 30, but it is transferred to Sunday, June 2 in some dioceses.
