Corpus Christi St. James will have several events for Corpus Christi.
May 20th - May 30th:  Eucharistic Miracles Display (Come and View at any time in the Narthex)
May 29th: Corpus Christi Celebration and Procession of the Lord around the Neighborhood  After mass there will be a procession with the Blessed Sacrament on the campus of St. James Church and St. James/Seton School (rain or shine).  Four altars will be set up outside and the priest, deacon, servers and parishioners will walk from altar to altar saying prayers and singing hymns.   It is a tradition for children who have recently received First Communion to follow the servers in procession.   Both second grade girls and boys are invited to dress in the clothing they wore for First Communion.   We also invite eighth graders who were just confirmed to take part in the procession and wear the clothes they wore for Confirmation.   Students from both SJ and SEA are welcome to participate.   Attendance at the 5:00 Mass is not mandatory.   Students can go to Mass earlier in the day and come for the procession.
