Corpus Christi - KC Procession

The two Kansas City dioceses are sponsoring a Corpus Christi procession on Sunday afternoon, June 10, beginning at 2:00 p.m. Bishop Robert W. Finn, of the Diocese of Kansas City ~ St. Joseph, and Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, will lead a procession from St. Thomas More Parish, 11822 Holmes Road to Avila University, 11901 Wornall Road, Kansas City, Missouri. Hundreds of people expected to make the 0.75-mile procession that will bring the presence of God to bless and protect the community. See Mapquest street map, although the route may not be as pictured.

At 1 pm the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed for adoration in the church, and opportunities for sacramental confession and reconciliation will be offered. At 2 pm the procession will form and proceed to the college, where Benediction will be sung.

Archbishop Naumann has asked specifically for many young people to participate and is offering t-shirts for the first 500 people that attend from the Kansas Archdiocese!

I highly encourage attendance at this procession, especially because honoring Our Lord's Body and Blood in the Blessed Sacrament is the best way to strengthen our faith for the coming days.
