PHOTOS: Corpus Christi procession in Rolla

June 14, 2020, St. Patrick Church


Father Gregory Meystrik, pastor of St. Patrick parish in Rolla and Holy Cross parish in Cuba, leads a procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament outside St. Patrick Church and onto the campus of the Missouri University of Science and Technology on June 14, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (“Corpus Christi.”). Participants practiced proper social-distancing during the procession, which included stops at the church, the Catholic Newman Center, the St. Patrick statue on campus, along U.S. 63, and back to church for the conclusion and Benediction. Many also carried flags and banners. People could park along the way and receive a blessing from a safe distance. (33 photos)
