Annual Archdiocesan Corpus Christi Procession

June 22 marks the 18th annual Archdiocesan Corpus Christi Procession in celebration of the feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. Sponsored by Millennium Ministries, the Basilica of St. Mary, and the Office of Worship of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, the event provides an opportunity to be united as Catholics and give public witness to the faith by processing with the Blessed Sacrament through Minneapolis. The procession will begin at 2 p.m. and end at 4 p.m. at the Basilica of St. Mary, and will include walking across Hennepin Avenue and through Loring Park. The walk will consist of prayer and song, and conclude with Vespers and Benediction. An ice cream social will follow on the lawn of the Basilica. For more information, visit or call (651) 239-8574.

Vocation Day events for young men and women
