Last Friday's Procession


As promised, here are some photos of last Friday's Corpus Christi procession at our primary school, courtesy of one of the teachers. In case any liturgical purists are tempted to leave copious comments about the number of candles or use of albs or the lack of kneeling in one picture or whatever, let me just say that we did our best with rather last minute preparation and in the absence of a proper MC. The children and parents seemed to have genuinely benefitted from it - especially the First Communion children, who you can see in their suits and dresses. The Headmaster has now requested that we have a regular Benediction at the school and the music master has just been asked to teach the children O salutaris, Tantum ergo and some Eucharistic hymns.

All looks lovely to me, Father... What a wonderful experience for the school community!

I found your blog only a short time ago, and am enjoying it very much.

I helped coordinate my parish's procession, also rather last minute. Does anyone know of a resource to ensure we conduct it "properly" next year. Thanks.

A graphic novel which may interest visitors to your blog is available from:

www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk

'The Least Among Us' explores the response of the Church to suffering in itself and a preview is available at: http://www.all-creatures.org/fol/ann-theleast.html

Whilst the book challenges certain attitudes and dogma it remains a Catholic (if underground) comic.

All best wishes,

Martin

Anon - Peter Elliott Ceremonies of the Modern Roman Rite has a good section on Eucharistic processions.
