100 years at Corpus Christi

A procession in the neighboring streets included the Blessed Sacrament carried on a pedestal and Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ.

Girls provided part of the music at the Mass.

Corpus Christi Parish in Fremont marked its 100th anniversary on June 22 with a procession through the downtown Niles district and a Mass, and celebrating afterward with ethnic food, music, games and raffles.

A week later, in a talk to diocesan supporters on June 28, Bishop Michael C. Barber, SJ, recalled the procession and events at Corpus Christi.

People came out to see the procession as it went through city streets, he recalled. "We don't ring doorbells but once in a while we carry Our Lord through the streets. … I am proud of our Catholic people."

These instances of public witness show Catholics' "life and vitality."
