St Aloysius Gonzaga – Oxford, England (Oratorian Fathers)
Each year since 2000, the Fathers of the Oratory have hosted the Corpus Christi procession for the city and University of Oxford. This year a record number attended, a vibrant and visible witness of faith and love of the Blessed Sacrament. Singing, reciting the rosary and carrying banners, parishioners, members of the university and visitors thronged the streets to accompany the monstrance. Members of the university in their gowns carried the canopy over the Blessed Sacrament, joined by priests and religious from across the city. A station with a sermon was held at Blackfriars – the Dominican house – and the procession concluded with Benediction at the University of Oxford Catholic Chaplaincy.
