St. Francis Xavier Church celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi with a Mass on Sunday, May 29. Prior to the service, a neighborhood procession made three stops along the route to offer blessings to those in need. Joining the pastors and parishioners on this journey were children who received their First Holy Communion this year dressed in their beautiful white dresses and suits.

Fr. Sferruzza held a ciborium housing the Blessed Sacrament during the Mass.
