GREEN BAY — The streets of downtown Green Bay will see a rare sight on Sunday, June 19.

The Eucharistic Procession to Kick-off the National Eucharistic Revival and the Worship Jesus Years for the Diocese of Green Bay will take place, starting at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral at the conclusion of the 9 a.m. Mass.

Instituted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the National Eucharistic Revival will begin on June 19, the feast of the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Corpus Christi). Bishops and archbishops will host eucharistic processions from the cathedrals in every diocese of the United States.

In the Diocese of Green Bay, Bishop David Ricken will lead the eucharistic procession from St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, 140 S. Monroe Ave. to St. Mary of the Angels Church at 650 S. Irwin Ave. The procession will travel down Doty Street to Irwin Avenue on its way to St. Mary of the Angels Church. The procession will end with benediction and reposition. A bus will be available to bring people back to the cathedral starting at 11 a.m. 

All are welcome to join for the Mass and/or to walk the 1.2 miles-long eucharistic procession. Fr. Brian Belongia, rector of the cathedral, will join Bishop Ricken in the procession.

Bishop Ricken said he believes that the procession is providential in that the eucharistic revival runs in alignment with the next step in our discipleship pathway, which has moved from “Discover Jesus” to “Follow Jesus” and now to “Worship Jesus.”
