St. John the Evangelist and St . Ignatius Join in Corpus Christi Procession

By Stjohnpa @faith_explorer

 

In celebration of the feast of Corpus Christi, St. Ignatius Loyola and St. John the Evangelist parishioners joined together Sunday, June 2 for the second annual Walk with Jesus between the two parishes. The three-mile Eucharistic procession began with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at St. Ignatius Church in Yardley. Participants then processed to St. John the Evangelist Church in Lower Makefield, where benediction took place at 4 p.m. Those who were unable to walk were invited to join in the celebration at either the exposition or benediction.
