Processions Mark Diocesan Phase of Eucharistic Revival
July 7, 2022
DIOCESE—The National Eucharistic Revival  kicked off on the Solemnity of Corpus Christi, June 19. The first of the Revival’s three phases, the diocesan phase, began in the Diocese of Rockford  on June 19 at the Cathedral of St. Peter with a Mass celebrated by Bishop David Malloy. 
During the weekend of Corpus Christi, parishes around the diocese joined the diocesan celebration with Masses and Eucharistic processions — some large, some small.
