Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi is one of the greatest Feasts of our Holy Catholic Faith. For hundreds of years magnificent Processions have held place where Priests and lay people reverently and proudly process the streets behind Our Lord. Never has it been more vital than today to bring Jesus through the streets, to publicly show our deep love and gratitude and adoration of Him, and not of the world.

Corpus Christi is the perfect feast day for First Holy Communion where a little child receives Christ's Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity for the first time. 

1950s England - beautifully stylish and classical First Holy Communion girls. Lace caps, flowers and gloves were all very popular.

Corpus Christi in Serbia. Traditional dress looks so beautiful!

German First Holy Communicants in glorious national dress. I love their intricate hair styles and jewelled head dresses.

Our annual Corpus Christi Procession in Oxford. The First Holy Communicants wear their dresses and veils and scatter rose petals in front of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

'O Sacrament most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, All praise and all thanksgiving
be every moment Thine'
