See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Corpus Christi Sunday



Archdiocesan Corpus Christi Procession


Sunday, June 14, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Starting at: Little Sisters of the Poor

Ending at: Cathedral of St. Paul, St. Paul

Sponsored by Millennium Ministries, in cooperation with the Archdiocesan Office of Marriage, Family, and Life.
Cost: FREE (Freewill offerings accepted)


Join the Most Reverend Lee A. Piché (Bishop-elect), the Very Reverend Joseph R. Johnson, and Catholics from throughout the Archdiocese in showing your love for our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament at the Archdiocesan Corpus Christi Procession, which will begin in the gardens of the Little Sisters of the Poor Holy Family Residence (whose foundress will be canonized this October).


The procession will wind through beautiful Irvine Park, up Kellogg Boulevard and Summit Avenue, to the Cathedral, where we will conclude with a homily and Benediction.


An ice cream social on the Cathedral lawn will follow (sponsored by Stephen and Jenni’s Domestic Church).


Park-and-ride: Parking is very scarce near Little Sisters’.

Park in the Cathedral parking lot and use the free shuttles to Little Sisters. Shuttles will run continuously from 1:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. (please don’t arrive at the Cathedral before 1:15 p.m., in order to let the noon Mass-goers clear out the parking lot.)


There are also one-time early pick-ups at St. John the Baptist in New Brighton, St. Rose of Lima, and St. Columba (see more details at http://www.walkwithhim.net/). Walk with the Lord this summer!

For more information on this splendid act of devotion and witness, contact Greg Smisek, procession director, at gsmisek@usfamily.net or (651) 239-8574.
