A procession to worship our Lord...


This past Sunday was the feast of Corpus Christi and our parish, the Church of St. Paul in Ham Lake, MN, held its annual Eucharistic procession (a good overview of a Corpus Christ procession is here if you are interested). Children who have received their first communion recently are encouraged to wear their dresses and suits and participate in the procession, and Clara was SO excited to do this! Even better, she and her friend Julia got to lead the procession and drop flower petals ahead of the presence of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

As I mentioned in the last post, we misplaced our camera battery charger (just found tonight!) and so I am shamelessly borrowing some photos from friends who organized the procession and took lots of pictures. Thanks to Sue and Holly!

It is always a profound blessing and experience to worship Christ truly present in the Holy Eucharist!
