A sea of devoted faithful flooded the streets of downtown Green Bay Saturday afternoon carrying banners and singing praises as they took part in the Green Bay Diocese's celebration for the end of the Year of the Eucharist.

Hundreds of people - young and old, some pushing strollers, others using walkers - took part in the processional for the closing of the Year of the Eucharist proclaimed by Pope John Paul II last October.

Surrounded by clergy from neighboring parishes, Bp. David Zubik led members of several diocesan parishes on the eight-block procession from St. Francis Xavier Cathedral to St. Willebrord Church, St. John the Evangelist Church and then back to the Cathedral.

"It was phenomenal," said Kathy DeGreef, from St. John the Baptist. "We want to be more involved in the Catholic faith, and this was a great day to worship and praise God. We hope to see more of events like this in the future."

There were two main purposes of the Eucharistic Processional: Encouraging people to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer before the Eucharist and to mark the conclusion of the Year of the Eucharist.   Full story ...
