On Thursday, 3 June, we celebrate the festival of Corpus Christi. We are delighted that the Revd Canon Roxanne Hunte, Vicar of St Mark’s and of Holy Innocents, South Norwood will preside at the Mass.
Corpus Christi (Latin for Body of Christ), is also known as the Day of Thanksgiving for the Institution of Holy Communion. As you know, Maundy Thursday marks the Last Supper, when Christ instituted the Eucharist, but the festival of Corpus Christi allows us to remember the occasion again in a purely celebratory fashion, unshadowed by the sadness of the days which follow Maundy Thursday.
We will celebrate Mass at 8pm on Thursday, also on Facebook here. Please do join us if you can and remember that we would be happy to receive petals for the flower carpet by 10am on Thursday
