ANNUAL CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION
Sunday, May 29th is Corpus Christi Sunday this year and His
Grace, Archbishop Coleridge, has given permission for the Procession
with the Blessed Sacrament to go through the streets of Brisbane City.
How wonderful this is to follow Our Lord in our capital city! As St John
Paul II said, “Do not be afraid to take Christ to the streets.” Parishes,
schools, Catholic groups and ethnic communities are all invited to
participate in this year’s procession. Each group is invited to walk with
their parish or group banner. The beginning time is 2pm at The
Cathedral of St Stephen. There will be the procession, the Rosary,
devotional prayers and Benediction lead by Bishop Joseph Oudeman.
The event is self-funded and so the Organising Committee welcomes
donations, large and small, to offset the considerable costs involved.
Donations can be made through the website: http://www.corpuschristibrisbane.com Information and details about the event is also available via the website.
