Around the Diocese: Corpus Christi Sunday 2021

The Feast of Corpus Christi is commonly used as an opportunity for public Eucharistic processions, which serves as a sign of common faith and adoration in the community. After a year of not holding indoor or outdoor events due to the pandemic, parishes around the Diocese of Brooklyn took to the streets June 6.

The Diocese Celebrates Corpus Christi

The Feast of Corpus Christi honors the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist and was celebrated with processions around the diocese.

The Grace of God Made Flesh

Today, we remember the grace of God made flesh – Jesus the Christ – given as gift and food for the journey. The Church remembers with praise, procession and gratitude. However, do we really “get it”? Do we fully realize the impact and response that this bread and wine, this Body and Blood covenant, should have in and on our lives?
