ANNUAL CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION
June 13, 2019
The Annual Corpus Christi Procession will take place on Thursday 20th June, following concelebrated Mass at 7.30pm at John Mackintosh Square.
During the Eucharist, Special Ministers will be distributing Holy Communion together with the Concelebrating Priests. The Congregation is asked to go to the distribution point nearest to them. These points will be marked with yellow and white umbrellas and Marshals will be in attendance to enable the distribution to take place in a dignified manner.
The Procession will leave John Mackintosh Square at approximately 8.30pm and proceed along Main Street, to the Cathedral of St. Mary the Crowned where Benediction will be given.
School children and members of the Catholic Organisations taking part in the procession are asked to be in their places by 7.15pm. All those attending are urged to follow the indications of the Marshals to avoid undue delay in the formation of the Procession. Children under seven years of age should not be placed in organised school groups, and parents are asked not to upset the order of the procession by removing children once the different groups have been formed.
On arrival at the Cathedral, children WILL NOT enter, but will welcome the Blessed Sacrament outside where Benediction will be given especially to them. After this, they can be collected by their parents.
The Corpus Christi Festivities come to an end inside the Cathedral where Benediction will be given, and the traditional ‘Cantemos al Amor de los Amores’ will be sung.
