Corpus Christi

Today we celebrate the feast day – Corpus Christi.

Corpus Christi is Latin for the Body of Christ. It is a Catholic festival that occurs every year after Trinity Sunday.

This day honours the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. It is one of the few celebrations that do not commemorate an event in the life of Jesus or Mary. Instead, it is dedicated to Jesus’ sacramental presence in the consecrated bread and wine.
