Second annual Eucharistic Procession to be held Sunday

Author: Tim Masterton


The University of Notre Dame will hold its second annual Eucharistic Procession on Divine MercySunday (April 23). The procession will set out from the Basilica of the Sacred Heart immediately following the11:45 a.m.Mass and is open to the entire Notre Dame-South Bend community.

The procession will make its way throughout the Notre Dame campus, stopping to celebrate Benediction at four altars constructed by various University clubs, residence halls and choirs, and will conclude at theMainBuilding. In the event of inclement weather, the procession will be held inside the Basilica.

Once a yearly event at the University, Eucharistic Processions fell out of practice more than 30 years ago, but inspired by Pope John Paul IIs declaration of October 2004 to October 2005 as theYear of the Eucharist,students, clubs and Campus Ministry staff restored the tradition last year.
