From Fr. Z's Blog: Corpus Christi Eucharistic Procession Today in Manhattan


NYC – Manhattan 7 June Corpus Christi Solemn TLM with Eucharistic Procession around Herald Square



The procession will conclude with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at the Church of the Holy Innocents.

My add:
A special plenary indulgence is available for Corpus Christi:

Grant #7.1.3
Eucharistic Adoration and Procession
Plenary indulgence

The faithful who piously participate in solemn Eucharistic procession, either inside or outside of a Church, especially on the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, may receive a plenary indulgence.

A partial indulgence is granted for visiting the Blessed Sacrament for adoration or for offering any approved prayer to Jesus present in the Blessed Sacrament.

Requirements for obtaining a plenary indulgence:

  • Do the work while in a state of grace,
  • Receive Sacramental confession within 20 days of the work (several plenary indulgences may be earned per reception),
  • Receive Eucharistic communion (one plenary indulgence may be earned perreception),
  • Pray for the pope's intentions (Our Father and Hail Mary, or other appropriate prayer, is sufficient),
  • Have no attachment to sin (even venial) - i.e., it is sufficient that the Christian makes an act of the will to love God and despise sin.

Requirements for a partial indulgence: The work must be done while in a state of grace and with the general intention of earning an indulgence.
