Solemnity of Corpus Christi celebrated with procession

MERIDEN, CT (06-10-2012) - As a community dedicated to the Eucharist, the Franciscan Sisters and Brothers of the Eucharist celebrate the Solemnity of Corpus Christi with great festivity. Following Mass, the Community processes to three altars for benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. This year, the Mass was held in the Prayer Garden near the Community's Transitus Cemetery. The procession moved from the Prayer Garden to the Guardian Grape Arbor, to the cemetery and ended at the Founders' Garden. Click the photo to start the slide show.
