St. Cecilia’s purchased a new canopy for the Corpus Christy procession. Our previous canopy had been used for several years, and was mended many times.  This “Tapestry of Life” canopy was purchased with money from memorial contributions.  Click here for information on the “Tapestry of Life Canopy” and the story it tells.   

On May 25, Father Don blessed our new Corpus Christi Canopy. Our 2nd Grade students participated in the blessing, as they are currently learning about blessings in their school work. 

During the Blessing, Father shared information on the Corpus Christi Procession that will occur on Sunday, June 6, following the 10:30am Mass.  The procession–a public expression of our faith–will begin at the church and will travel through the neighborhood to our west. The students who have received their First Communion this year are invited to wear their special outfits and participate in the procession.  

Pictures shown below were taken during this blessing.
