Solemnity of Corpus Christi

Vatican » Year of Faith » » Solemnity of Corpus Christi

On the Solemnity of Corpus Christi this Sunday, 2 June, the Holy Father will preside over a special Eucharistic adoration that will extend at the same time all over the world involving the cathedrals and parishes in each diocese. For an hour, at 5pm (Rome time), the whole world will be united in prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

Here is a snapshot of some of the Holy Hours being offered in England and Wales (see link ‘Year of Faith’), and you can see the Worldwide picture on the Vatican Year of Faith website.

Apart from many Parishes, Vigils of Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament will take place in many of the Cathedrals of England and Wales, and in many Monasteries and Convents.

There will be Processions with the Blessed Sacrament in Cambridge (Our Lady & English Martyrs), (2.30pm Procession & Benediction), Oxburgh Hall, King’s Lynn, Lancaster, Preston, Middlesbrough and many others.
