Corpus Christi Procession

Corpus Christi Procession 2019

Thank you for joining us as we beautify the procession route for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament at St. John the Evangelist, Severna Park! See this video of previous procession.

Do you have a First Communicant? They are honored guests and active participants! Please put just your family name (JUST LAST NAME) below (last signup slot) so we know how many pews to reserve. (Last minute participants are very welcome!)

Claim a portion of sidewalk on Saturday and decorate it with chalk! Family and friend groups or individuals of all ages are very welcome. Please sign up below.

The procession begins after the 5:15 pm Mass on Saturday, June 22nd.

The enjoyable participation spans 3 days: 

Thursday, June 20th, 9:45 - 10:45 am (cutting and sorting over 500 flowers in the Gathering Space) 

Friday, June 21st, 7 - 9 pm (teens and young adults -- trimming petals from flowers);

Saturday, June 22nd, 9:30 am - 7:30 pm  (many and various opportunities!)

Below are opportunities for you to provide materials and be team members!  Flower prep, flower carpet assembly, chalk panel assistance, and some logistics.

Click here to sign up for the potluck fun to follow! 


Come and help! Invite friends and family -- it's an opportunity to create beauty for the Lord, and evangelize, too.
