Hundreds of people took to the streets of Birmingham this afternoon (Sunday 23 June 2019) to take part in a Corpus Christi procession.

The Blessed Sacrament procession started at St Michael’s Church on Moor Street and finished at St Chad’s Cathedral.

Archbishop Bernard Longley, along with several other Clergy and representatives from Religious Orders, were involved in the procession, which followed Mass at St Michael’s and exposure of the Blessed Sacrament for Veneration.

Corpus Christi is the feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.

Throughout the procession petals were scattered along the route, and further prayers said upon arrival at the cathedral.

This afternoon’s event was organised by the Polish community of St Michael’s, in conjunction with the cathedral, and supported by the Knights of St Columba who provided marshalling assistance.
