Corpus Christi Procession

"You are invited to walk with Jesus through the streets of Omaha."

Processing through the community with the Blessed Sacrament on the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ is a venerable Church tradition. The procession is an outward demonstration of Catholic faith and belief in the real presence of the risen Christ, under the appearance of the Consecrated Host. The procession is made up of clergy, Catholic groups and organizations, and lay people and their families. Children in First Communion dress traditionally strew flower petals in front of the transported Eucharist. The Holy Eucharist is held in a processional monstrance carried by a priest or bishop. The monstrance itself is protected by a decorated canopy. 

A group of priests and laity, organized by Father Damien Cook of St. Peter Parish, bring this glorious tradition to the streets of downtown Omaha each year on the Feast of Corpus Christi. 

StoryTel Foundation filmed the annual event with its largest scale multi-camera shoot to date, and has used the footage in several programs so far. This particular video, assembled in the trailer format, is used to spread the word and provide information for the procession each year.
