Fr. Niklaus Pfluger will lead the Procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament in what promises to be the largest Corpus Christi procession in Winnipeg.
Our Lady of the Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 478 McKenzie Street, Winnipeg will be celebrating the feast of Corpus Christi with a Solemn Procession on Sunday May 29th at 11:00 a.m. following the Traditional Latin Mass at 9:30 a.m.
It is our privilege this year that Rev. Fr. Niklaus Pfluger, First Assistant of His Excellency Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X, will be travelling from the SSPX headquarters in Switzerland to lead the Procession. The Most Blessed Sacrament will be carried under the canopy by Fr. Pfluger, assisted by the Deacon and the Subdeacon, and accompanied by the Cross bearer, candle bearers, altar boys, thurifers, Catholic Associations with processional banners, and the faithful. The Holy Rosary will be prayed during the procession, interspersed with traditional hymns in English and Latin. Hundreds of Catholic individuals and families will be participating, with the faithful travelling from throughout Winnipeg, Manitoba and the neighbouring provinces of Saskatchewan and (North Western) Ontario. All Catholics are invited to attend this year what may become the largest Corpus Christi solemn traditional procession in the history of the city.
