Corpus Christi processions
Friday 27th June 2014

Ordinariate groups across the country were involved in some beautiful and moving processions to mark the Feast of Corpus Christi last Sunday (22 June).

Pictured here is the one organised by St John the Baptist Church, Westerham - home of the Sevenoaks Ordinariate group. 

Both at Westerham and at the church of the Most Precious Blood, Borough, London - which is in the pastoral care of the Ordinariate - children took part in the traditional practice of strewing petals in the path of the blessed sacrament.  

At Westerham, later in the proceedings, a brass band played to the assembled crowd.

Elsewhere, there was a big turnout for the procession at St Osmund's Church, Gainford, where the Darlington group is based, and in central London, members of the Ordinariate who worship at the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street, joined more than a thousand people from neighbouring Catholic diocesan parishes to take part in a procession from the Church of The Immaculate Conception, Farm Street, to St James's Church, Spanish Place.

The Rector at Spanish Place, Fr Christopher Colven, said: "Pope Francis speaks constantly of the need for new forms of evangelisation. This is what we were doing – literally taking Jesus out onto the streets of our neighbourhood".
