Bishop Richard J. Malone will lead this year’s multi-parish Corpus Christi procession between two historic Polonia churches on Sunday, June 18, 2017.
The half-mile procession will begin at 1:30 p.m. from in front of St. Stanislaus Church, proceed to 4 outdoor altars, and conclude with Holy Mass at 2:45 p.m. at Corpus Christi Church. The Mass will be concelebrated by priests from parishes around the Diocese. All Western New York’s faithful are welcomed to join in the procession and Mass. The Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ is a feast established in the church in the 13th century. Polish Roman Catholics carried the tradition with them to America, where it continues to this day as a unique public display.
