Corpus Christi Procession

Last Sunday, the three parishes joined together with the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP) for our second Corpus Christi Procession.  The procession left St Mary’s Shrine at 3.00 pm.  Fr Alex Stewart, FSSP, who was ordained to the priesthood at St Mary’s the day before, carried the Blessed Sacrament.  Children who had recently celebrated their First Communion strew petals as we processed so that the Lord was walking on a bed of flowers.


The procession made its way through the Town Centre, singing hymns and praying the Rosary…


to St Alban’s RC Church in Bewsey…


where Canon Cunningham greeted us at about 3.45 pm and led Benediction to conclude the procession.


This year, we were blessed with many visitors – priests, deacons and seminarians from the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter, as well as parishioners from other parishes in Warrington.  Many thanks to those who came along, especially the altar servers, the First Communion children, the singers and those who kindly assisted as marshals.

Many thanks to the FSSP for the photo’s.

There are lots more photo’s on St Mary’s Flickr:
