Adult Faith Formation | Eucharistic Procession Guidebook
A Eucharistic Procession, just like Eucharistic Adoration, is an extension of the worship of Jesus Christ, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. The supreme act of adoration and the source and summit of the Christian life is the celebration of the Mass, and that celebration is prolonged and intensified through Eucharistic worship outside of the Mass.
This document is meant to be an aid for any parish that would like to plan a Eucharistic Procession, especially parishes that have not recently or have not previously organized a procession. In this document you will find guidance on the logistical aspects of planning a Eucharistic Procession
- Inviting a leadership team and initial planning
- Planning your procession route
- Roles and procession order
- Liturgical considerations
