The Feast of Corpus Christi celebrates the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. The feast was originally celebrated in 1246 in Belgium after Saint Juliana petitioned her bishop for a feast day outside of lent set aside for the Eucharist. In 1246 Pope Urban IV instituted the feast day for the entire church.  The Feast of Corpus Christi was established to create a feast focused solely on the Holy Eucharist.

Holy Family Cathedral will be observing the traditional Feast of Corpus Christi with a Eucharistic Procession following vespers on Thursday, June 15th at 7 pm. This event is a family friendly event and all are welcome to join. Vespers will be followed by a procession outside to altars set up around the Holy Family Cathedral Campus.
