Corpus Christi Events in London

The church of Corpus Christi in Maiden Lane, London, is holding a special series of events for its titular feast. On Thursday, June 20th, the traditional date for the feast, His Eminence Francis Card. Arinze will celebrate a Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form, opening the Forty Hours devotion, which will continue through the next day. On Saturday the 22nd, the Forty Hours will close with a Pontifical Mass in the Ordinary Form, celebrated by His Excellency Michael Campbell, Bishop Emeritus of Lancaster. On Sunday the 23rd, the date of the OF Solemnity, Mass will be celebrated in the morning, followed by the Eucharistic Procession.

Last year, after a major restoration of the church, His Eminence Vincent Card. Nichols officially established Corpus Christi as a diocesan shrine of the Blessed Sacrament; on the Sunday feast, he celebrated Mass and led the church’s Eucharistic Procession in the Covent Garden.
