Corpus Christi 2023 Photopost (Part 3)

We continue with the third post of photos of your Corpus Christi liturgies, and still haven’t finished! There will be another in this series, so as always, we will be very happy to include more photos of other major feasts celebrated recently, such as the Sacred Heart, Saint John the Baptist, or tomorrow’ feast of Ss Peter and Paul. Send them into, and don’t forget to include the name and location of the church, and anything other information you think important. Once again, thanks to everyone who sent these in, keeping up the good work of evangelizing through beauty.

Oratory Church of St Wilfrid – York, England 
Here we see the Oratory’s procession as it passes in front of the York Minster. This is the English answer to the regular contribution to this series from Mr Arrys Ortañez, who usually sends us a photo of the Corpus Christi procession of Holy Innocents in New York City with the Empire State building in the background.
Saint Joseph Catholic Church – Bowling Green, Kentucky
Hispanic parishioners crafted the “alfombras” which we see here, artistic carpets made of sawdust and flower petals in the street for the procession to walk upon. Parishioners also created three altars for the procession to stop at prior to returning to the church for Benediction. Those who made their first Communion were invited to spread rose petals along the route.
