Corpus Christi on Campus

Corpus Christi came and went, followed by a flurry of activity on campus, but on this Fatima anniversary we wanted to to share this picture of the Grotto stop from the campus Eucharistic Procession 10 days ago.

Beginning at 2 p.m., local First Communicants in their dresses and suits spread flower petals on the pavement to lead the procession, presided over by Abbot James Albers O.S.B, which wound through campus and ended at St. Benedict Parish church, which offers Perpetual Adoration for Benedictine College students.
