The Eucharistic Procession
The annual Eucharistic Procession on the feast of
, or on an appropriate day near this feast, has
a special importance and meaning for the pastoral life of the parish and the
local area. When the Eucharist is carried through the streets in a solemn
procession with singing, the Christian people give public witness of faith and
devotion towards the sacrament. It is a statement of our belief in and
reverence to Jesus in the Eucharist. Corpus
This year the Feast of
will be celebrated on the 22nd of June. On that day we will
celebrate Mass and then gather and process with Jesus through Bantry and
Kealkil to again proclaim our belief and our dedication to Jesus in the
Eucharist. Corpus Christi
