Archbishop leads Eucharistic procession through Detroit during Corpus Christi (PHOTOS)

DETROIT — Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron presided over a solemn celebration of the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Jesus, the patronal feast of the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament, on Sunday, June 2.

The Mass and Eucharistic procession, which circled the neighborhood surrounding Detroit's cathedral, was one of hundreds taking place during the solemnity across the Archdiocese of Detroit.

The Knights and Dames of the Order of Malta, children's choirs and faithful all took part in the procession, which took on added significance in the lead-up to next month's National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis. The feast also took place one day after the archdiocese's fourth and final Regional Eucharistic Congress, which was celebrated June 2 at St. Scholastica Parish in Detroit.
