 Holy Name of Mary Catholic Church, and other Christian churches around the world celebrate this anniversary and continuation of Christ’s turning bread and wine into His body and blood at The Last Supper. While many celebrations are held within the walls of the church, this annual procession goes ‘outside’ to expose the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament to all the world while processing through the streets and byways of villages, towns, and cities.
