Corpus Christi processions show love

Bishop Kevin Rhoades, carrying the monstrance holding the Eucharist, joined parishioners at Corpus Christi Parish Sunday in South Bend, in celebration of their patron feast day. Over a hundred faithful walked with the bishop and Corpus Christi pastor, Father Daryl Rybicki, for a prayerful and joy-filled procession in honor of the Solemnity of Corpus Christi. Altar servers Johnathon Zmyslo and T.J. Freeby carried the bishop’s crosier and the crucifix on a beautiful sun-kissed afternoon. The procession was followed by a parish picnic. — Diane Freeby
