Eucharist Procession at The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament
My family and I visited Detroit’s The Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament on The Feast of Corpus Christi. It was a first time visiting the main Catholic church of the Detroit Diocese. The cathedral is beautiful! I loved the amazing architecture of the building.
Celebrating a feast day at the cathedral was also a special experience for my family. We marched in the Eucharist procession (a beautiful celebration to bring Christ into the neighborhood near the cathedral) and it was a deepening spiritual experience. I love sharing my faith with others and I felt the march was a great way to share the love of Christ with the city. Just by simply singing praise and worship songs and marching in the procession.
As we walked in the neighborhood and passed houses, neighbors watched us with curiosity, wondering why all these people were walking in a line following a group of priests.
Two young children saw the procession approaching and the children excitedly opened their windows and yelled a heartfelt greeting to us: “God Bless You!”
