Video – F.I. News #20: 2007 Corpus Christi Procession
Loading the player...
Once a year, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate take the Good News to the streets, literally as it were, as they process Our Blessed Lord through New Bedford, Massachusetts, on the Feast of Corpus Christi. The procession begins downtown at Our Lady's Chapel and winds through the city to 3 different churches before finishing again at the friar's chapel. This year we had wonderful weather and a wonderful turnout of approximately 275 faithful souls.
This video condenses the 3+ hour procession down to 17 minutes and features beautiful music of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration (Mother Angelica's nuns), the Northern RI Sancte Ceciliae (a homeschool family from Rhode Island), and songs of benediction from the various churches we and Our Lord visited on our journey.

Your procession with Our Lord was breath taking and I only wish I could have been there but I feel as though I may have been for a few minutes watching this video thank you so much for sending it to me. I especially loved the Churches. We have a procession at our Church which is St. Patricks in Amboy but it lasts just a few minutes as we circle the grounds only of the Church. It is beautiful but I would love to see it longer as yours is…how beautiful….God Bless all you do and again thank you.
I am sorry to have missed this event especially since it was only 20mins away. Thank you for the video.
JMJ…. Ave Maria!
Congratulations for the very solemn procession which was well-organized and filled with love, prayers and devotion to the Most Holy Eucharist as you always did in the past. I wish I could be there next time to participate and experience once again this very heavenly event on the special occasion of Corpus Christi. Well done! Keep up the good works, love, and adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament!
What a beautiful procession. The carpet of flowers at Our Lady’s Chapel was most inspiring: We must also lay ourselves at the feet of Jesus Christ in the Most Holy Sacrament! Let us give Him our entire wills. Thank you friars for such inspiration and love of Our Lord!
Ave Verum CORPUS Natum De MARIA Virgine!
