Corpus Christi Processions
The Corpus Christi procession was an important part
of the life of the parish for many years.
It set off from the church and ended with Benediction at the bandstand in the park opposite.

It was the tradition that the children who hade
received their First Communion that year
should wear the clothes they had worn then -
and the little girls would scatter rose petals in the path of the Blessed Sacrament.
After the Second World War, Polish and Italian people
joined the procession -
often wearing national dress.
