In celebration of the Feast of Corpus Christi on June 2, parishioners and clergy from Prince of Peace Parish in Lewiston will participate in a eucharistic procession down Sabattus Street in the city.

The procession will begin at Holy Family Church, located at 607 Sabattus Street, at 12:30 p.m., continue down Sabattus Street for about a mile, and conclude at the Basilica of Ss. Peter & Paul, located at 122 Ash Street. It is estimated the procession will arrive at the basilica around 2 p.m.

The Feast of Corpus Christi, also known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, celebrates the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist and the institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper. The feast dates to the 13th century, and for the past 600 years, it has been celebrated with processions, during which the Blessed Sacrament is carried in a monstrance through community streets.
