DETROIT — Catholics across the Archdiocese of Detroit participated in Eucharistic processions June 6, a tradition for the solemnity of Corpus Christi.

The processions, meant to honor the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, took place after Mass outside parishes and in public squares. 

At St. John Fisher Chapel in Auburn Hills, hundreds of Catholics joined a procession through the campus of Oakland University, while Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron led a procession through the neighborhood surrounding the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Detroit. 

St. Scholastica Parish in Detroit took the opportunity to introduce neighbors to the parish, hosting food trucks, live music and games after the procession.
