HUNDREDS PARTICIPATE IN 

DEANERY CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION


      On Sunday, June 22, hundreds of parishioners and families from around North County gathered at Sacred Heart Parish to participate together in the first deanery-wide Corpus Christi Procession. As a sign of service to the community, many participants brought food donations for the local T.E.A.M food pantry. 

      After the Exposition and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament in Sacred Heart Church, the procession headed down Rue St. Francois. The group was led in song and prayer by choirs from Sacred Heart and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta. The procession paused for Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament at the second altar at Stems Florist, and then continued to the third altar in the church at Old St. Ferdinand Shrine. A few other small altars had also been set up along the route. The procession was followed by a family picnic with food and refreshments. Funding for this event was generously provided by an evangelization grant from the Koch Foundation, Inc., one of the largest Catholic foundations in the United States.
