THE FEAST OF CORPUS CHRISTI

The Feast of the Most Sacred Body and Blood of Christ was celebrated in the Ampitiya Parish on the 30th October. The Blessed Sacrament was carried in procession around the village on an ornate chariot with a very large number Rev. Fathers, Rev. Sisters Religious and Diocesan Seminarians and lay faithful accompanying it in procession. The Procession began at the Montefano Benedictine Monastery with the celebration of the Holy Mass and was concluded at the Ampitiya church with a Benediction service. The very high attendance rate and the active participation of a vast number of lay faithful in spite of inclement weather was a great witnessing of the faith of the Catholics of the area.
