NORWALK—The Catholic Churches of Deanery G (Norwalk, Darien and New Canaan) will hold a Eucharistic Procession, Sunday, June 23 at 3 pm on the Feast of Corpus Christi. The 1.9-mile procession route will begin at St. Matthew Church, 216 Scribner Avenue, Norwalk, and conclude at St. Ladislaus Church, 25 Cliff Ave., Norwalk.

The Feast of Corpus Christi was instituted in 1264 by Pope Urban IV. Also known as the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, this day celebrates in a special way the Holy Eucharist, which Catholics believe is truly the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As Catholics unite to witness the Exposition of Christ and walk in the Procession, they are uniting and walking with Christ.
